comment Cancel / block a task triggered with delay by windows “task scheduler”
The linux tools for handling a ups are quite good. If you have any linux systems you might want to have them deal with the ups and tell the windows machines when to shutdown.

comment INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE on Hyper-V 2012 R2 virtual machines
One though...does the amount of ram differ between working and broken vms? Try cloning a working vm then give it the vhd of a broken one. That would eliminate any weird hyperv config issues. Or just make sure every setting even ram size and such is identical to an ok vm.

Also I would build a vm, apply all except the latest updates and reboot a few times to see if it breaks. Then try again with newer updates one at a time. If it is an update breaking it you might narrow down which one that way (then tell us so we can remove it from our servers!). I was bitten by the KB2919355 fiasco. I dont want a repeat!

comment INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE on Hyper-V 2012 R2 virtual machines
Scary thing to try...but is the problem limited to VMs or are the hosts affected too? Have you tried rebooting one of the cluster nodes a few times to make sure it comes back up? May be better to find out now than Christmas morning...

comment Get an SSL certificate without revealing my clients postal address?
Normal certs just require proof that you have administrative access to the domain - recieving emails to postmaster@example.com is usually sufficient.

comment Why is SCCM 2012 R2 is pushing client to devices without being configured to do so?
Check the event logs in a machine it was pushed to - the events immediately before the install may give you some clues.

comment How to emulate Windows event logging in Ubuntu?
@GaryS.Weaver Windows can read text files. Not well, with the built in notepad mind you, but it can :) Realistically, you will probably need separate log monitoring for linux systems.

comment How to emulate Windows event logging in Ubuntu?
Its actually much much easier to go the other way around, have windows log to a syslog server, and monitor the logs the unix way.
