Found the solution I needed, eventually (and sorry for the slow response here). It was to use RRAS, and set it up more or less as described in this post: http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/24551-17-windows-2003-server-network-cards-multi-homed-connection-help - scroll down about a third and look fo...

I figured out that I want to install RRAS and NAT, but I still can't seem to get the two networks talking to each other. I'm wondering if it's something to do with one of the NICs having been taken over by Hyper-V as a virtual NIC for the VMs, but since the other servers and the testing.vm domain is...

Normally I've only used NAT in a consumer router (D-Link, Linksys/Cisco, etc). Never had to try setting this stuff up in Server 2008 before! For the VMs, at first I had all the role services assigned to the physical server. However, that only operates in RDSH (Remote Desktop Session Host) mode == tr...

And yeah, the first thing I tried was setting a secondary IP under the Advanced tab in the NIC1 properties. Didn't seem to do anything. The server needs to be seen as 192.168.0.93/255.255.252.0 from the corporate LAN and as 192.168.1.3/255.255.255.0 from the virtual LAN - simultaneously.

Bridging between two totally distinct networks (Server 2008)

First off, a short background. In my workplace, I have sole responsibility for testing a VDI/RemoteFX setup for our testing team. The IT department is just a couple of guys for several hundred end users, so I was given hardware and licenses and told to have fun. Here's what I have: Windows 7 worksta...

Well, it was a two-part solution. Part 1: the RAM mystery. Yes, this was solved with a BIOS update. Funnily enough though, it never occurred until the CPU changed (and I tried clearing the CMOS too, just in case; didn't make a difference), so I wonder what triggered it off when I did change the CPU?...

Somebody on IRC said something similar. It's funny though, with same BIOS, RAM and motherboard, only the dual-core CPU instead, this didn't happen. The amount of RAM is exactly the same so I guess it's some sort of memory shadowing - but why does it only happen on this quad CPU, and not the dual? Ev...

If any computer is turned on and off frequently, thermal stress can have bad effects due to expansion and contraction of components. But surely it's irrelevant whether it's a laptop or a desktop - after all, a laptop in hibernate is 100% powered off (current state is written to HDD and it needs no ...

CPU upgrade, some strange occurences

Okay. I have the machine in my sig. I just now replaced my E8400 with a Q9450 (stock 2.66GHz) and rebooted a few times. Two major oddities are puzzling me: 1. I have lost half a gig of RAM. Prior to this, everything reported 8192MB on startup and in Windows, while post-upgrade, all the stats now rep...

Problem solved, but I don't know why. I moved the box downstairs to try it with my TV. Two things changed at this point: first, a new set of resolutions for the card (all the way to the TV's native 1920x1080) and the connector. I suspect this connector may be a factor, although not necessarily. Basi...
