i need some help i need to create an answer file for windows 2008 and was wondering if you guys had any tips.
Thanks in advance
I've been in IT for eight years, but still have enormous gaping holes of knowledge . . . perhaps because I simply happened into it, and never studied?
Anyhoo, two hard drive questions for you:
first, opinion! Would you pay $45 for a 7200 rpm 500gb hitachi refurb, or $55 new? Nothing protects data, and I'm often guilty of buying a new one instead of keeping my warranty information and going through the proper channels when things fail anyway. The only exception is when I purchase through best buy, because they're the only retailer I've used that keeps my receipt info for me and lets me exchange warranty crap right on site, but then the price doubles! The extra moolah is almost worth it when I consider how often I've swapped out hard drives, but not really.
Second: I typically use enclosures or docks at work to make clones of hard drives or transfer data. Now I need to do both for my home computers. Can I skip the enclosure and use the second internal bay to get the job done? Does it work exactly the same way, minus the hot-swapping, or do I need to adjust some things so that windows understands how to recognize the drive the way I want it to? I realize I should know these things already, but I don't.
Thanks for your help and opinions!
I'm trying to use a scheduled task to automatically restart a server every so often.
Unfortunately, every time I check the start time on my running tasks through msinfo32, none of them indicate that the machine has been rebooted.
Here's the run path and flags I'm using for the task:
C:\WINDOWS\system32\shutdown.exe -r -d:4:1 -f
Any ideas as to what I'm doing wrong?
We just had some troubles with a post in here. As a result, I would like to invite all of you to email me or post a comment in my journal if you see anything here that bothers you (my email's listed on the userinfo). I'll deal with things as quickly as I can. I'd appreciate an email if you see a comment thread going in a bad direction. While I try to keep an eye on things, I can't always keep a close eye on everything, so alerts are appreciated.
Have a great week, ladies,
