VSS and Snapshots/Clones log purging and mixing backup types
I would really appreciate if anyone could answer the following questions for
me as we are looking into the use of iSCSI block storage and snapshot
1. Is a snapshot capable of being rolled forward in the event of a DB
failure/corruption to provide a no-loss restore in the event of DB corruption?
2. Can a snapshot be mounted into an RSG?
3. Can agent based conventional backups be mixed with VSS backups?
4. If snapshotting is used how are log files purged?
5. As snapshots are deltas are backed up clones required in order to protect
from disk failures? The original data needs to b...How do I remove electronic business cards from the 'insert busine.

I don't usually post a recommendation for software that
helps out the software developers, however today is
different. A little while ago I was looking around on
the internet for programs, and I stumbled across an
application that will analyze a computer program, and
will tell you what DLLs and other files (like OCXs) that
the application needs in order for it to run. This
program is called Dependcy and can be found at:
I hope everyone will try this software, because it sure

...Exchange Server Migration
We created a new exchange server in a new exchange environment in a new
Windows AD Domain. I've migrated users fine (ADMT works nicely), and
migrated their email using Exchange Migration Wizard. We noticed that any
email in a users Outlook, that was prior to the migration, bounced back when
they replied to one of the older messages.
I updated Recipient polices to give everyone their old X.400 address in
addition to their new address; yet users are still bouncing email when they
reply to an older message in their Outlook. Here's a sample error message:
