How to backup Windows Sever w/ Exchange on-prem and in the cloud?

Our small office is running Windows Server 2008 R2. This one server acts as our file server, our mail server with Exchange 2010, our Active Directory server, AutoDesk License server, etc. I want to have on-prem backup and use a cloud storage for some form of offsite backup, but I can't seem to find the right solution.

Old Skool Exchange Tabs

When Microsoft updated Exchange a couple of years ago, they got rid of all the tabs that used to appear in a user's profile in Active Directory and foisted the Exchange Management Console on everyone, which is missing several useful features from the tabs. Apparently, it's possible to restore the tabs and their functionality to the MMC, but I can't seem to figure out how to do that. Does anybody know how to get them back?

Mac->Windows migration for a small office: tips and suggestions?

I've been the all-around IT guy for a small office of 30 for a few years now. We've been primarily a Mac shop this whole time, but new business requirements mean that we'll probably be buying more windows machines going forward. I've been tasked with a pilot program to migrate 1/3 of our office over this year, with the assumption we'll bring everyone else over next year. Details inside: [more inside]

How to centralize adminsitration of multiple Unix machines (and others)?

I'm curious as to what are the current "best practices" when it comes to centralized administration of a network of Unix (primarily Linux, but not necessarily so) machines? Essentially, what is the equivalent of Active Directory for a network with one or more Unix hosts? The immediate answer I come up with would be something like OpenLDAP plus PAM but what I'm looking for is the suite of tools (GUI and CLI apps) for managing the directory, deploying software, centralizing sign-on and security, managing printers, etc. In a perfect world, I would like to centralize administration of Windows, Unix, and OS X machines via a single directory service, though I imagine such a solution would be expensive and/or cumbersome if it even existed. Or is this something Samba 4 will do?

Active Directory is not trusting

I'm working with an Active Directory domain that has had a rash of PCs losing trust with the domain. Whenever users log on to the domain and try to access shares on the server, they are denied access. I've found a way to fix this, but would like to know the root problem. [more inside]

Active Directory 2003 book recommendations

I'm a senior Unix system administrator who will shortly be responsible for maintaining an Active Directory 2003 installation as well. I'd like to build up a small ad2k3 reference library. I've had training and am finding my way around fine so far and I'm not a stranger to NT4, so I'm not lost, just trying to be prepared. What books do you recommend for an experienced sysadmin who is new to Active Directory 2003?
