comment How can we remotely administer our “fleet” of Windows 7 laptops?
Once you thaw a machine, how do you coordinate and control windows updates? App updates? Push new software? That's what Intune and other configuration management software does. Deep Freeze does not, as far as I know. It will "lock in" a configuration, but once it's "thawed" it doesn't have a way to centrally update/control Config changes.

Deep Freeze does the opposite of Intune. Intune manages the configuration of a machine so that it can be easily updated and reconfigured. Deep Freeze locks the machine into a steady state. These are two different objectives. You need to determine which one is appropriate.

Nope. There is an agent that gets deployed which checks in to Intune on a regular basis, if it can't check in, it will get all policies and deployments the next time that it is able.

comment Fax Server on a Domain Controller
Please don't install this kind of thing on a Domain Controller. Applications like these are what member servers are for.

comment Windows Server DNS Service returns local IP addresses
Don't do it this way. Don't even try. Your public DNS infrastructure should be isolated and separate from your internal infrastructure. If you're looking to educate yourself, do it the right way!

comment Windows Server DNS Service returns local IP addresses
Woah why? Never expose your DCs to the Internet, and never host public DNS on the same servers that you host internal DNS on. This is a terrifying configuration that you've implemented here - unwind this as soon as possible.

comment Multiple GPOs with Security Filtering or Single GPO with Item Level Targeting?
AD RMS is an absolute disaster of a product, though. Azure RMS is far superior (though not free).

comment After setting PDC to external time source, do I have to perform a similar action for every pc/server to sync with PDC?
Actually, each DC in the same AD site as the PDCe will sync from it, with DCs in other sites syncing from the bridgehead. But for all intents and purposes, this answer is close enough :)
