    SLT prefer the students to have @ourdomain.org rather then wsgfl - the hosting on the exchange server is fine - we have two x 2007 and they seems to cope easily with the 700/800 ish users each. But due to the way the timetable is here and becuase we have so many departments with IT rooms (11) it works out that we can have nearly 450 users (various teachers and all 11 rooms being used) trying to login at once a couple of times a fortnight which can at somepoints make everything grind to a halt!! In fact its a wednesday week a at 11:05-11:15 and thursdays B at 9:05!

    Not all of ours are vm's yet - still getting there - both exchanges are physical plus half the file servers - problem is we have a 4.5tb san which just isn't big enough to store all the data if we virtulised them (as we run 15/20 xp vm's for remote access) - our virtual hosts both have 64gb of ram and host the rest of the network apart from exchange n some file servers + our 2 proxys + Isa + a dc (for failover) backup (and fog). We are looking into purchasing another SAN for next summer when we move to 7 as i Want to reduce amount of physical boxes and full virtulise (either with exchange 2010 or Zimbra)

    We have stupid amounts of server (26 i think (cant remember them all)! single network)

    i killed the G4 and got a G6. so I got the 2 G5's and the G6' in the vmware cluster with HA and VMotion now.

    CPU usage on the ESX boxes never goes above 3%. 6 nics for VM traffic, 2 nics for VMkernel/vmotion/vsphere client

    can't see why you need 26 servers

    the two G4's are off, might use them,!!!

    would a script to copy the app data etc (dont do outlook for anything other than my home pc) from say \\server\users$\outlook (and make outlook hidden) to %userprofile%\appdata on logon allow you to run outlook and a mandatory profilr (with an associated logoff script (and maybe reghacking to move the pst to their user area again hidden?
