New Online Backup Server

We have a couple of clients with COX Online Backups. Our existing server was having trouble handling the demands of it, e-mail, web, and file/print. So, we’ve added a new server. It is running the AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+ processor, with a 1 GB of RAM, on Windows Server 2003 R2 x64 Enterprise Edition. We’ve moved the Online Backups to that server and, for the time being, going to keep everything else on the other server.

RAID 5 Error

I’ve been working with a client who has been running a 180-day trial of Windows Server 2003 Enterprise. We decided to put Windows Small Business Server 2003 on it. We had everything working last night when we noticed that one of the drivers in their RAID 5 was blinking red. I went into the RAID BIOS configuration and noticed that the drive was offline. I told it to go online and it instantly did. Guess what? The Windows partition┬ásome how got wiped out. The data partition was fine. So, I had to reset it all up today.

Windows Defender is out

Microsoft Antispyware has come out with Beta 2. Now known as Microsoft Defender (Beta 2), the whole User Interface has changed. I’m running a scan of it right now on my laptop. This came out on Monday. However, I wonder what time Monday as I installed Microsoft Antispyware Beta 1 Monday in the early afternoon for someone.
