Lately I’ve been working on some Exchange 2003 related issues here in the EEC (mostly in the performance tuning area). It’s really taught me how much I don’t know about Exchange.

I pretend to know a little something about ESE. The reality is, I probably know more than the average teddy bear, but I hardly know much. It’s a complicated beast. I know little.

Some of the issues I’ve been looking at take me down from ESE in to the I/O stack, drivers, and SAN related things. I think I know even less about that layer than I do about ESE.

The net is that working on an issue that crosses between ESE and the lower layer stuff means I am really even more lost than normal in either area. :)

But I’m happily learning, and having some fun.
