comment sAMAccountName used for logged on users
Are your SAM & UPN's similar? Example, at my shop SAM=xyz123 and UPN=xyz123@mydomain.com. If your UPN is unique & meaningful, ask your vendor how to configure the product to assign the left side of the UPN as the SAM.

comment Would a duplicate DC on same subnet be bad, if ALL auth is only internal to the server?
Two DC's for the same domain on the same subnet, no problem. But cloning one DC and running a copy of it on the same subnet with a different IP? That will never work. They see each other, try to replicate, kablooey!

If it is "self contained" why does it need ANY network connectivity? Give the VM no VLAN, no network connectivity. Use the VM console app to connect to the VM instead of RDP.

comment User logged in with temporary profile
Does the problem only happen when THAT user logs on? Any issue if DIFFERENT user logs on? I've seen this warning when there are keys beneath Profilefile that end with ".bak". Removing the bak's fixed the problem.

comment Does the “Enterprise PKI” MMC allow for any automated testing of the PKI?
Provided as an example of what can be done to get him started, not a full blown solution to monitor the entire PKI infrastructure.

comment Task Manager Up Time differs from systeminfo System Boot Time
I missed that, but typically taskmgr adds a days indicator when up for 24 hours DD:HH:MM:SS. Wonder why this one hasn't done that?

comment IIS 8 SSL Stops working Windows 2012 Core
Pretty closed minded approach for problem solving. Each client performs its own certificate validation, and if something is wrong on a subset of your clients... I'm not saying this IS the cause, but explaining cert validation was too long for a comment.

comment Domain computer cannot resolve internal hostnames, but nslookup can
Does your environment have the DHCP server registering the DNS name on behalf of the DHCP clients, or does each DHCP client register its own name with the DNS server directly? You're only having this issue a single computer on the domain?
