Why can't the DHCP server take a crap in the early evening or afternoon? Why at 3:00am two days in a row?? #OnCallWoes

@michael why not setup dhcp failover with server 2012 r2? Surely if its that critical it would be worth it.

Is it just me , or is a shutdown and power on not the same as a restart (Windows 8 and 8.1)?? I mean, please tell me it's just me

After installing updates, I'm told to restart to finish installing. Well I like to shut down for the day and when I power back up it still says to restart to finish installing updates.

It's just me right?

+Michael Weaver I view it as managing user expectations. Get people to the login screen and then load all the crap to reach the desktop. Change the place people wait and they complain less.

Anyone know if it's at all possible to write a batch file to pull the highlighted directory into a variable and use it to change to that directory?

This directory is different for every machine. I've created the batch file to list the contents of the parent directory so the user can enter the GUID directory name but this allows for human error, if you will. Any help would be appreciated.

Just getting some shut eye before a charity golf tournament at 9am. I'm on call until 7am and at 3:45 this morning I get the "my internet is down call".

Before I can even start to troubleshoot, I get 2 more calls with the same issue

It's a dhcp server issue and I don't have eyes on it!

Switched 5 locations over to a new network today. Each location has a printer/copier, some have 2.

A new virtual print server was brought online as well.

Reserved each printer and a database server in the new scope.

Only a few hiccups with Shoretel phones but it all went pretty damn well.

Each printer came up with the right IP as well as the db server. All clients were only affected when we moved them over to the new switch

Printer installs on the new server went without issue

I just wanted to tell a group that could understand the accomplishment.

I can end my 15 hour day in many bottles of beer

To do:
5 more locations next week

So my communities have not been showing up in my feed for 2 days (on the iOS app). Utter disappointment. I realized how few people are in my circles and how little those that are in my circles actually engage in G+
