This is one of those settings that I will have to play around and see what is right for SBS 2011.  RSS/TOE is of those settings that it will have to earn back my trust after losing it so much in the Windows 2003 and 2008 era. 

First included by default in Windows 2003 SP2 (and Mark Crall can even remember that lovely incident), it has a history of not playing nice nice with Exchange.  Granted a SBS box isn’t going to have the processors that big hunking Exchange servers do… but this setting is one I think I’ll be checking on and getting some guidance from other brain powers.

    That server that he was working on was probably in a large company with many many users. They were probably trying to squeeze every last cpu cycle out of it. With the processing power and multiple cores of todays small business servers and the relatively small amount of traffic going in and out of an SBS server compared with a server in a large company I don’t think this will really be an issue for SBSr’s.

    With SBS’s integration, turning on or off Toe or RSS for one app could affect another.
