comment How do I set up my office network so unqualified domain names resolve as if they have a default suffix added?
I see what you mean. Is there any reason why your web server cannot have the single-label names bound to the relevant sites? You could, for example, bind the host header "www" to the same site as "www.mydomain.com"

Do you not have a default DNS suffix set on your client machines?

He says he needs to allow code on some sites but not others. This won't work in that scenario.

comment NSLookup resolves to local DNS, but browser resolves to public
If the clients are Windows machines, they may also be using NetBIOS broadcast name resolution or LLMNR which won't hit the DNS server, and may also give different results from nslookup

comment In-place upgrade of Windows Server 2008 (not R2) to 2012
It doesn't explicitly mention it, but I would imagine that it's not possible to upgrade from the 32-bit version of Server 2008.

comment How to find cause of IIS Timer_MinBytesPerSecond error?
The error is due to IIS receiving data at a slower rate than the lower threshold. Could there be something in the path that is buffering the requests from the client?

comment Can't select IUSR for running a service under
That strikes me as less secure than the default. Are you sure you want the WWW publishing service to run under a different context, or could you perhaps be needing to run an Application Pool under a different context (for connections to remote servers and so on)?

comment Windows 2008 started crashing regularly every week
Other than the Event ID, that KB article appears to have absolutely nothing to do with the problem as described.

comment Disable TCP/IP Filtering via GPO
I took a look this morning before disabling RRAS - the wizard applies a set of pretty restrictive IP filters (both inbound and outbound) that would definitely revent the machine refreshing its policy.
