comment Exchange 2013 and AD/GC issues
By default Exchange will use any DC, but it can be configured to use a specific DC. Did anyone set that option? HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\MSExchangeADAccess\Instance0\ConfigDCHost‌​Name // described here technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/…

comment Group Policy - Not automatically running on all machines
Another idea... if someone was really anti-policy they may have disabled it without using policy. Check for manual mods to the following registry key: HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System\DisableBkGndGroup‌​Policy

comment Group Policy - Not automatically running on all machines
Try running RSOP on some of the problem machines and look for ANY settings within the GP admin template section. Someone may have unexpectedly changed the interval, or disabled background refresh. Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Group Policy\Turn off background refresh of Group Policy

comment Creating active directory users with powershell - the mapped home folder is not mapping until edited
After you invoke set-aduser, what does "get-aduser charlotte -prop homedirectory,homedrive" show? Have you debugged output of ($HomeDirStart + $_.OU) and $HomeDrv vars to insure they contain the expected values?

comment AD automation setting home drive and logon script
Easier to discuss if you make edits to your post with the answer Try: if ((test-path \\hydad1\home$\$User) -eq $false) { mkdir \\hydad1\home$\$User }

comment EventLog “Access Denied” after installing an additional DC in a 2012 environment
Did you reboot the DC after the promo? Does powershell command "get-addomain" show the name of the new DC in the ReplicaDirectoryServers property? What does running event viewer locally on that server show beneath the "Application and Services Logs" node?

comment Remote service query (sc.exe query) fails with “access is denied” for one service, but not others
Each service has its own security control setting, just like each file can. During the service install, or sometime after the fact something bad was done to the SDDL on that service. Take a look here (serverfault.com/questions/645776/…) or here (blogs.technet.microsoft.com/askds/2008/04/18/…)
