comment Newly promoted domain controller showing many errors but dcpromo didn't complain?
You can find the DC Promo log at C:\Windows\Debug\DCPromo.log. This log on one of my DC's is just shy of 4000 lines. After the timestamp and before the message there is a status column, mine all say [INFO]. What have you got in yours?

It is possible there is another account with the same samAccountName (%k) in a different OU?

When I use psloggedon v1.34 against a remote system where my account does not have admin access to that system, it works fine. Are you using an older version that requires admin access? Do these remote systems belong to the same domain? workgroup?

comment DFS Namespace with alternative FQDN beside the existing domain FQDN
Do you want to maintain both the long and short FQDN? If you don't need, don't care about the long name, you may consider renaming the domain, although it is not a trivial matter. See serverfault.com/questions/630041/…

comment Is there an easy way to add yourself to an Active Directory group, with only Add/Remove Self permission?
You asked for (1) users be able to add themselves (2) without errors (3) without ADUC. This meets all 3 of those conditions. The commands are powershell, which IIRC is installed by default with Windows 7 and later OS's. You may need to upgrade to V3 to get the "activedirectory" module.

How many total entries are being returned so far? If its more than 5000(?) you could be hitting the ldap server search limit, and that may factor into the "randomness" of the result.
