RPC vs. RPC Out for Linked Servers

When configuring a Linked Server the Server Options tab has check boxes for 
RPC and RPC OUT.  Can someone explain why you would or wouldn't need to 
enable either of these options?  Thanks!

One of them, has no function at all, as far as I know. The other controls
whether you are permitted to make Remote Procedure Calls over the linked
server. That is, call remote stored procedures or EXEC() AT. I don't
remember which is which, but I think RPC OUT is the useful one.

As for why you would not enable a server for RPC. Hm, beats me. Well, some
data sources may not support RPC, but you need to have a server option to
turn somthing off which does not work anyway. But, OK, if you turn off
RPC OUT, you do reduce what is possible to do on the other side. Or at
least make some thing like updating more difficult.

Adding 2nd server in an Exchange 5.5 environment
Is there an easy way to move the IMS connector from one Exchange 5.5 server to another? I recently added a new Exchange 5.5 server running on Windows 2000( No AD).

visited links no longer change color
The links still work when clicked but, no longer show purple when visited. This happens in both Outlook and Outlook Express. Yesterday I tried making fonts a little larger as I have eyesight problem. Not sure if this is when the link color problem started. What I did exactly is: *Tools > Options > Mail Format > click "Fonts" button > click "International Fonts" button * At first I went through the list making each one "Larger" font size. * I realized that it's probably only "Western European" I need to change, so all others were set ...

question about leaving messages on server
My husband and I have 1 POP mail account. I am accessing it from a computer in Virginia, where I'm staying with relatives. He is accessing the same account from California. I have my Outlook set up to keep messages on the server, but to delete them after 1 day (so that he will still get the messages, but the server won't get clogged). His email program, Eudora, is set up so the messages will be deleted from the server after he downloads them. Is there a chance I won't get some messages because he has his computer set up that way? (He downloads it 1st, then it gets deleted off serv...

Re-exporting functions from dynamically linked DLL
Hi, I have the following situation: I have a 3rd party DLL which does not include a LIB file, just a header file with typedef declarations for exported functions (It is intended for dynamic linking) I need to wrap the DLL to allow for callbacks to my own code (in Lisp), and to do this I need to load the DLL using LoadLibrary and access each function that I need using GetProcAddress. So for example: The third party header will say: typedef INT (WINAPI * lp_function)(); Then in my c wrapper file: #include "3rdparty.h" #ifdef _WIN32 #define DllExport __declspec(dllexport) #else #...

One front-end server multiple back-end servers

Thirdly, the last AG group has 2 exchange servers in it, both are in the same AD domain. 1 of these 2 exchange servers in the final AG mentioned is a front-end server, that should be supporting all the exchange back-end servers. The problem we are facing is that when a user from any of the ...

Exchange server and POP3 access

The problem is that it sends it through the exchange server account, though the return address is correct. I would like it to send the email through the account specified in the configuration for the POP3 account. Why this is an issue, is that the copy of the sent mail is stored in the s...

user shares vs. folder redirection
Just finished a brute force migration of SBS 2003 to 2008 and I am wondering if there is any reason why I would want to place the old user shares files into the new user shares folder. I should have prefaced by saying that the only reason they used the user shares in sbs 03 is because someone never setup redirection. Instead just told them to copy everything into their ..lnk folder. So I am thinking since these are not files that they cared to share with others anyway why can't I just copy them into their redirected folders? I would just put the files wherever the u...

Alphanumeric links
