E4SE date shown in US format in regardless of locale setting

This is one of the strange things encountered while maintaining the E4SE application, sometimes when you change iis settings, it might overwrite the .js mapping created by ICE tools, after recreating the .js to aspnet mapping, it is back to normal.

Fixing up Intra-site replication error

I wasn't able to connect to one of the server and after looking into it, it turned out to be DNS issue which is in turn caused by AD replication failure...
coz our whole environment was built upon VMWARE, I noticed that VCB backup can freeze DC and make it fail.
the way to fix this up is to manually restart KDC service. re-enable inbound and outbound replication on the failed DC.
the following command might be helpful:

dcdiag
netdiag
replmon
repadmin

repadmin /options DC1 -DISA.....
repadmin /synall
repadmin /showreps
...
