comment Less than 10% Free Space on Database Server
Are you sure you have your units correct for the drive space? Did you mean GB instead of MB?

comment How do you disable Just-in-Time debugging messages?
I think I'd be more inclined to try and fix the cause instead of hiding the effects. A crashing w3wp.exe process will also be affecting legitimate users of the application. Is this your code or a 3rd party application?

comment Cannot Access file server via IP Address but it can be accessed by its hostname
Are the machines joined to the domain? Have they lost their trust relationship? Check the security event logs for failure audits.

comment Cannot Access file server via IP Address but it can be accessed by its hostname
You get a password prompt? I thought you said you get an error saying there are no logon servers available? What do you mean by \\domainname-ipaddress? Are you using the DNS name or the IP address? Please be clear in your explanation of the problem.

comment Is mac address based security for single user Web Application a good idea?
Indeed. Depending on the network topology, the source MAC address that the server sees will probably be that of the local router anyway.

comment settings up active directory accessible from the internet
If your DC is currently exposed to the Internet, unfirewalled then the first thing you need to do is start again. You can no longer be certain that your systems haven't already been compromised.

Perhaps the network folder specified is currently mapped using a different user name and password :-). What does NET USE show?

comment Role of multiple domain controllers in a domain
"You can also have multiple forests (domains) linked together" - to me that looks as if you're using the term interchangably. I'm sure that's not what you intended based on your comments, but it may confuse others.

comment Role of multiple domain controllers in a domain
Not sure I understand. Domain != Forest, whatever the volume of domains you're talking about. Maybe edit your answer to clarify?

comment “trick” Exchange 2010 into allowing unauthenticated users to send mail to a group
I haven't tried it myself, but here's an idea: *Set up the address as a mailbox rather than a distribution group *Set up an internal distribution group that contains all the other DG's that you want to send the mail to *Configure the mailbox to forward all incoming mail to the distribution group.

comment Outlook Anywhere with ISA 2006 autodiscover failing isa denying the url (exchange 2013)
Hang on, you're using integrated authentication on the inbound rule? Not sure this'll work for external clients - besides, Autodiscover connections probably won't be authenticated anyway

comment IIS starts, but w3wp.exe is not running and not serving the pages
+1 I suspect you may have a memory leak with an external DLL - your Connections_Refused lines in HTTPSYS.log suggest that this might be the case. Also see here

Check %SystemRoot%\System32\LogFiles\HTTPERR\ for indications that HTTP.SYS is rejecting the connections for some reason.
