I recently had a customer whose backup drive was full with windows server 2008 SBS server.  I checked and the VHD file was under half of total space.  I ran a CHKDSK and could not find he problem.  Finally I checked the shadow copy and set the limit lower to get it to work.  Here are the steps.

1.  Right click on the drive and go to properties


2.  Click on Shadow Copies Then Settings.



3.  Change the Use Limit to something smaller.  I went to the minimum and it freed up the space.

Setting up PBR on a cisco router is easy.  The other day I had a customer with a cisco router with one port that needed two internet connections.  Since I could only use one port I set up PBR with a basic router to do the rest.  They also had a VPN to another location and and extranet to connect to.  Here are the IP addresses. – Extranet router – cisco router which I will give the config for other router -cisco router with vpn

  match ip address 117

   set ip defauly-next-hop
