  1. Thank you Patrons except there is no place to configure this on the Exchange server, other than installing Outlook on the server and doing it there, but that will work similarly to how it is on a remote computer. I opted to just create a custom reply using the resource booking agent so when someone books that resource, the resource booking agent sends back a custom reply with the required information. Thank you.
  2. I received a request today to add some instructions to the description field of an Exchange 2010 room calendar. What I mean is, when you right click on the calendar, click properties, you get the Calendar Properties dialog box and there is a description field available. Now, I have full control over this mailbox/calendar and I can enter the instructions into it but it never leaves my outlook client. It never goes to the server and it never shows up on anyone else's outlook client. I've attached a screen shot of the dialog box in question. Anyone have any idea how you can change this, permanently? Thank you in advance!
  3. No sounds.. but it does give history... and its free to use if you are monitoring no more than 10 devices.. I use it to run pings to my firewalls at my overseas offices..... it works..
  4. yeah.. use QOS if you can and make sure you have your numbers right.. dont get your megabytes and megabits mixed up. Another method you could try is to use NetLimiter It allows you to throttle your bandwidth based on exe.. so you can say... robocopy.exe.. you only get 1mbps
  5. what drivers are you trying to use and have you installed them on your Windows XP x64 machine yet? (Oracle, Firebird, mysql..... )
  6. you want backlinks.. get your site linked on many other sites and it will get crawled. Hit up That is the forum you want to be asking this question on. Infact.. its already been answered on there many times. There are people offering in some cases free links on their front page in exchange for links on your page. Because your site really doesnt have any real content to offer, you want backlinks.. Then, once more people start going to it and writing stuff up you will have more content to be indexed. What kind of advertising have you done?
  7. No, you cannot set this per application. You would have to have one which is the default for everything and that would be your normal default gateway(which should probably be your broadband card) Then you need to find the ip address/s that outlook uses and do a route add from the command prompt for that network route add (mailserver IP) mask (mailserver subnet mask) (Broadband gateway) metric 2 route add mask metric 2
  8. Nice.. Now I just need the official volume license copy to come out. We've been holding out upgrading out Exchange 2003 environment for 2010.
  9. Defiantly go with the latest and greatest. Server 2008 R2 and depending on when you deploy this... Exchange 2010. There is no reason NOT to go with it if you are requirements other than "you are unfamiliar with them" Isnt that always the case with new software anyways.. And embrace x64. everything MS is coming out with now is x64 and there is a great reason behind it. So I would say just get used to that, things are good enough with it now where you really wouldnt notice to much of a difference between x86 and x64 As far as your remote sites.. you should be more than fine with the connection you have to your remote office... I have 2 remote sites, one in Belgium and one in Shanghai with about 40 users at each site(about 300 at the main site) and we are still running off Server/Exchange 2003 using cached mode over 2mbps links.. Now.. I would not say that is an optimal setup by any means, we are gearing up for exchange 2010 once it is released but it works, and users arent complaining. Now.. your upload speeds are a little slower at the main branch but you also have half the amount of people so you'd prolly be alright..
  10. Correct me if I'm wrong.. and it has been a very long time since I messed with SBS.. but cant you only have one DC in a SBS enviroment?
  11. Yes.. MS offers the dsadd utility. I only used it in a MS class like 7 years ago and never used it since so I dont know the exact command line for you but here's the spec sheet and options
  12. no, it will just say a subdirectory or file \\server\users\username already exists and exit to the next line. One part I didn't really think of though is you will then need to set permissions on each new folder otherwise everyone will have access to everyones stuff.. I guess what I would do is actually how I ran things at my last place.. Redirect everybody's My Documents to the server and just tell everyone to save stuff there. That way you can just map it like you wanted to do (via \\server\users\%username%) and it will automatically create the folder like you want.. Also, one thing I noticed in my time is if you give users a mapped network drive they still might not use it.. but if you redirect their my documents.. that is where they just naturally save everything anyways.. so you dont really need to train your users any different.. SO yeah.. i change my mind.. I would redirect their my docs
  13. This can be done via group policies and other registry hacks and what not.. But what your explaining is Citrix. Hands down.. thats what you need to accomplish this cleanly.
  14. My favorites are Server 2003 and Windows 7. I am just still sooo comfortable with Server 2003. I know everythign about it and where everythign is in it.. Server 2008 changed a lot and I like it, but am just not as familiar with it, which should be expected since it is soo new.. And 7 is just soo nice and fluid. Not slow at all, it is everything vista was supposed to be and more.
  15. it will be automatically created if you map the drive using active directory or redirected profiles/folders, not if your running a net use command I would try running a mkdir \\server\users\%username% then put net use u:\\server\users\%username% that way it will make the folder first.
