It might be useful for the Exchange Server 2003 admins. The Performance Team explained three different ways to find out if the /3GB is enabled, as follows:
We've talked a lot about the /3GB switch and its effect on system resources in previous posts. Today we are going to discuss how to determine whether or not /3GB is enabled on a 32-bit system without looking at the boot.ini file or using MSCONFIG.EXE. Finding out this information is not as difficult as you would think - there are actually multiple ways to find this information. We are going to find this information in three different ways - by looking in the registry, by using PSTAT.EXE and by looking at a Memory Dump File. So, without further delay, let's look at the simplest of the three methods - finding the information in the registry.

We can change the company name and URLs information that comes with the live meeting invitation in OCS 2007. Let's see how to change the default settings, as follows:
- Open Microsoft Office Communicaton Server 2007 console
- Expand Forest - <Domain name>
- Expand Standard Edition Servers
- Expand <OCS Pool Name>
- Right click on <OCS Server name>, click on Properties and then click on Web
- In General tab, fill out with your organization name as shown in the figure below
We can also modify the URL's that go with the invitation. To do that click on Meeting invitations and change the internal and external URLs.
Let's try our new configuration, if you have the Live Meeting add-on installed, create a new Live Meeting and you will see your company name and your URLs in the invitation.

Yuri Diogenes has blogged about how to troubleshoot an OWA publishing rule on ISA Server 2006.
Sometimes troubleshooting publishing rules can be really challenging. The main reason for that is because of the thin line between the published server and the edge firewall (in this case ISA Server). Where is it broken? Is my ISA Server not allowing the connection from outside or my published server that is not answering the request from ISA Server?
