HELP: how to turn 1 DCOM service into cluster/replicated services
I have a massive DCOM service written in Visual C++ 6.0 + MFC that manages
user logins & their sessions. When the service is running live, how does one
upgrade it, without kicking the currently logged in users? Is it possible to
replicate the service to implement resiliency & failsafe/faileover
Would it have been better to implement a REAL client/server approach for
multiple servers for resiliency & failsafe/failover mechanisms?

I've recently added a second Exchange 2003 server in our organization
to take the place of the first one. I've moved over all mailboxes and
public folders and it seems to be running good. Now I would like to
take the fist (original) Exchange server out and leave the new one as
the only one. Is there a document out there that is recommended for me
to follow? Any advise is welcome.

I'm running into an odd situation here, and I'm not sure if it can be fixed.
I'm trying to change the name a server sends out in the banner when it makes
an SMTP connection.
In Windows NT 4.0/Exchange 5.5, I would change the DNS server name from the
local server name to mail (or whatever it would need to be).
In Windows 2000/Exchange 2000, system manager allows you to configure a FQDN
in the SMTP advanced delivery properties.
I ran into a setup that is running Windows 2000 (which doesn't have a place
to plug in a server name in DNS) and Exchange 5.5 (which doesn't seem ...Stopping Internet Mail Service from a Dos Prompt
