comment JVM on Windows - paging and full GCs
Np, but don't blame Windows... the same advice about using JNI to lock memory applies to *nix as well. :)

comment How Can I Enable MSS Group Policy Settings Windows Server 2012
@ibsk8in31 Excellent! I'm glad it worked for you. The MSS settings are still relevant today, so we need them even on 2012 R2.

comment Should I encrypt OS disk with BitLocker for HIPAA compliance
The HIPAA Security Rule fails to explicitly mention a lot of things. It (and all other similar compliance doctrines) are purposely vague in an attempt to transcend technology. But what it does explicitly say is that you must implement an addressable specification if it is reasonable and appropriate to do so. So you will need to convince your auditors that encrypting your data is an unreasonable and inappropriate activity for you.

comment Windows Service “System error 5 has occurred. starting service”
Use Process Monitor and perform a trace while you attempt to start the service. Then filter the events where Result != Success and see on what object access is being denied.

comment How do I workaround inaccessible DCs in a spoke site, in a hub and spoke configuration?
No it does not hurt for all DCs to have NS records. Just as long as all clients only use DNS resolvers that they can actually talk to in their NIC configurations. I can't quite figure out what "errors that GPO can't access company.com" means though. Maybe a full copy of the event log message would help.

comment sAMAccountName used for logged on users
No, I would focus instead on making your privilege management solution stop creating user accounts with mangled names.
