"Enumerate target servers failed" when attempting to modify or delete maintenance plan
Originally posted Tuesday, October 23, 2007 10:37 AM. UPDATE: 12/14/2007 I fixed this error for one instance of my active-active cluster, but I'm still getting the same error on the other instance.

Connectivity problems with SQL using NLB
Originally posted Wednesday, October 24, 2007 4:08 PM If you are using NLB (Network Load Balancing), you may be forced to use Unicast (as I am). This forces you to create another IP address on another NIC to do operations other than NLB, such as domain access, administration, and connecting to a database. You may also have the misfortune of being required to set this NIC to use the same subnet. If you are able to have different subnets, then you need to force all traffic to the database to go out ......

Moving articles to blog

I've noticed that my articles aren't being picked up by the search engines, so must be something funny with the way things are set up.  Anyway, I'm moving all my articles to the root of the blog so that they can help someone.

Unable to manage form templates
Just solved a problem, and wanted to document the solution. Problem: SharePoint MOSS 2007 Central Administrations site.
