This wouldn't be such a big issue if we didn't have to use Ghost, but we still must use it to image XP machines with HD based recovery, since Imagex can't do it.

What specifically are you doing that imagex can't handle with XP? Are we talking about using the Ghost software to make backups that you're restoring (aka, not sysprep images)?

Yeah I left the "loop" part out as I wasn't sure how to word it politely... :unsure:


You really need some managed switches. :)

I'll go back to the Extreme switches again. They have a feature called ELRP--Extreme Loop Recovery Protocol. It's not on by default but once configured it will detect a loop and automatically disable the looped ports. If you have their management app--EPICenter--you can configure it to forward switch events to you via email and/or text message so you'll know immediately when that loop is created and which ports it was created on.

It also helps to be able to disable ununsed ports so someone can't just walk up and plug in.
