Symantec firewall + Virtuozzo Containers = BAD

Do yourself a favor and don't ever install symantec endpoint protection 11 inside a virtual container, especially the firewall portion. The container will not start. Virtuozzo support has just fixed my issue, but saved yourself a lot of frustration and just don't do it.

RDP /console Doesn't work after Vista SP1

Just a heads up, looks like after I installed SP1 for Vista the / console option does not work anymore. It has been replaced with the /admin switch.

I knew this was coming for 2008 servers, but didn't realize it was associated to Vista SP1.

Installing Virtuozzo

Is surprising easy. I did it in the background while doing my taxes. Looks like all the updates ran without a problem. Now I need to create some VE's and play with them. Hopefully Domino and Sametime will be up and running by the end of the weekend. That is if I get my san all re-configured.

Installing Server 2008

I am finally getting around to setting up a replacement domain controller. I decided to install server 2008 and have the latest and greatest. So far I have a couple of issues.
1. No Dell OpenManage for Server 2008 - not a big deal.
2. Can't install SQL 2000 on Server 2008. This is used by our BES server and I am not paying to upgrade to SQL 2005. I bet I could convert this box to my new Virtuozzo box without any problems. hmmm. When I get the new hardware I will try it out. The cost of another Server license is surely less than a SQL License. Or is it?

Besides, so far so good.

I think it's funny that Server 2008 was released as Server 2008 with SP1. But whatever, so far it works.

Who Knew? I didn't know.

Here is an article about my sisters father in law and his battle with kidney disease.

I had no idea about any of this.

Please keep him in your prayers.

The Shoppe on BBC radio!


Sometimes the craziest things happen. Here is a note from mom.

This is a picture of the BBC correspondents that interviewed us
at The Sausage Shoppe today. They are following the US Presidential campaign
and picked up on the re-election of Dennis Kucinich. They found the shoppe
through Dennis Kucinich's website http://kucinich.house.gov/Polka/. They
wanted to know if the BBQ sauce we use was named for him. We said no; it was
for our son Dennis.

The interview is supposed to air Sunday, March 2 at noon
http://news.bbc.co.uk/.
