  1. Error 0x800f0922 when trying to install DHCP on Windows 2012

    October 2, 2014 by The Man

    Thanks Microsoft for this really informative error screen but it basically means there is another DHCP server on the network so you cannot install until you stop it.

    Now ideally I would get a better error message or heaven forbid allow the install so I can configure then I could choose to shut the old DHCP server down when I make this active.

    I like how Microsoft are moving in the cloud but there are times when you think “…what were you fucking thinking….” when you see their attempt at IE – so tacky and is this really 2010.

  3. Setting up DNS for Office365 on Fasthosts

    If you have ever set up Office 365 but wanted to keep control of your DNS you’ll know you get a great checking from Microsoft as to what you need to add. However the information on the SRV record isn’t quite right. It should look like this, hope it helps somebody.
