I don't have any answers for you, but +1 for a well researched and written question!

Are there actual call quality problems? Could their monitoring tools just be wrong?

@DarkMoon If you redistribute an old image it will get used. and by it could run, I mean from boot images used in sequences available to that PC.

comment Linux Authentication by Active Directory without joining to domain
Could you not just adjust you imaging system to append an L or something to the hostname when applying the image? Or have a script in the os image that makes the change before it joins the domain?

comment About digital signatures. Are they really secure?
@Peregring-lk The secure channel is only one way. For signing, someone signing something with your public key means absolutely nothing, since everyone has the public key. But signing with your private key (which you have, hopefully, kept private) means you signed it. For encryption, you encrypt with my public key. Only the my private key will decrypt it. Having my public key lets you verify I sent a signed message, or send me an encrypted message. But it does nothing to show who sent me that encrypted message, or who reads my signed message.

comment About digital signatures. Are they really secure?
@Peregring-lk even with the updated question, I'm still not sure why you believe someone can get the private key. Can you please explain how you think a person you send a message to gets the private part of the key?

From a security point of view, even if you can do it, you really really shouldn't.

comment Which port is the High-speed USB 2.0 port on a PowerEdge R900
The usb 1 port you see in lspci is likely from idrac - all the real ports should be usb 2.

Do they need to use their own account? Would a generic account on those pcs be sufficient?

You can definitely script adding them to you templates. Google "zabbix custom discovery" (on my phone so can't write a real answer right now...)

comment What do I need to manage remote laptops in ConfigMgr 2012r2?
@HopelessN00b a VPN will work for the staff laptops, but not for the ones they borrow for training (not on the domain, not always used by people with domain accounts) or the public computers (like library computers) - I don't want them on the staff network, but do need to make sure they have all their updates and get hardware inventories.

comment Exchange TLS Receive Connector Cert
If CheckTLS.com is returning the right certificate, and not showing any other errors, the error is likely on their side. The only other thing I can think to check is that CheckTLS.com shows that all the chained certificates are being sent (the godaddy intermediate and root certificates for your cert).

comment Exchange TLS Receive Connector Cert
Use checktls.com to test which certificate your server is presenting.

comment Exchange TLS Receive Connector Cert
If you can't remove them from the exchange console, try from mmc.exe -> Certificates.

comment Server won't physically fit in rack: which technical problems will I face in future if I force the mount?
At the very least, remove the doors so nobody can close them accidentally and smash something. Most rack doors come off just by pulling a pin on the hinge.
