Sorry, I think we're interpreting the word cluster differently here. When I read that I though you were talking about Microsoft Cluster Server - which is a different technology than multiple domain controllers. He had three domain controllers.
In that case, how do you recover from something like this? Since the FSMO roles are on a 2003 server, do you start running through the various esentutl.exe commands?
Right, I'm talking about an AD application cluster (the set of domain controllers for one domain.) SBS has to be the root controller in order to work. And if you have a cluster (this isn't AD specific but is a general thing about clustering) you can't do restores. If you restore a cluster node like this, you corrupt the entire cluster in many cases, if you are lucky just one node. AD DCs form a database cluster under the hood, which is how they handle failovers, but that means that you have to protect them like a normal database cluster and let them resync from a rebuild, never do a restore.
al details. I don't regret buying or reading through any of them. Books on Windows, DOS, printers, networks, repair and troubleshooting techniques, system design and building, etc etc. All of that is good.

Besides, bench techs don't think, according to @scottalanmiller, they work by script - aka, reading a script and doing what it says. Once you have to start making decisions, you're no longer a bench tech, you're in IT.
Not quite, but that's closer. Bench is about tech, about consumer gear or business stuff that falls into consumer spaces. IT is "Business Information Infrastructure."
Lots of bench people make decisions. Like if you are building a white box desktop for a gamer, the bench guy will likely make several decisions from CPU to GPU to RAM to case and power supply. It's not a script, but it is not BII, either.
hey - you're making it grey again :P
There isn't nearly as many strictly hardware people anymore these days.
Hi @Jason. Thanks for your note. I do not seem to see how I can get one for free. I am browsing their site and see that in the Free SSL section they only appear to provide 90 days 'free' for SSL certificates, no mention of S/MIME anywhere...
I understand the additional points such as automated validation and the open records, but you can get free SSL certificates through StartSSL. The companies who don't want to pay for an SSL certificate (or do the research to find a free one) are most likely using shared hosting or some kind of managed hosting that costs extra to enable the SSL certificate anyway. So if they aren't going to pay the money for the cert, I can't see them paying extra per month to enable the free cert on their hosting.
