    What happened to the OP? My morbid curiousity wants to know how this turned out.

    The guy didn't test it nor had a fallback plan nor did he take the time to research issues correctly and admitted he just winged it. Someone who is inexperienced should not be performing this kind of work and if I/we bail him out this time he'll just do other things he probably shouldn't be doing and his company would not have learnt a lesson from not hiring the correct people to do the job correctly.

    Sound harsh? Well I'm in a bad mood.
    I agree, you/I could check the posters number of posts before handing out useful information. I think everyone posted because its fun to discuss possible resolutions. Someone could tell this guy exactly what needs to happen to fix this problem, but its the same concept as cheating on a exam, he doesn't learn anything and still doesn't understand how or why this system is now working.

    Perhaps he got the message from my ramblings, or perhaps he took our advice and hired someone.

    I hate to come off sounding unfriendly but this site is not here to give free advice to unskilled IT people and tell them how to fix everything.

    Sharing ideas, methodologies, studying tips and non-textbook style problems is what we're here for.

    *Did I already say this??*
