And figured that it was also a good time to double check that I could recover from my backups.  So I parked a backup onto an external usb drive that was attached to my new HyperV host.  I shared out the usb drive to “everyone” in order to get it from the domain over to a workgroup host (note to self this should be ‘unshared’ from this methodology in order to protect from cryptolocker later on).  I went across the network from my SBS - read more

I install Exchange update rollups all by themselves and on 9/24 Exchange put the 2007 and 2010 update rollups on MU and WSUS.  Normally they don’t kick a reboot but this time it did. While I have seen issues reported with the 2013 update especially in a mixed Exchange deployment with 2010, I have not seen issues with 2007 nor 2010. - read more
