comment Checking if SOAP has been installed on a CentOS with Directadmin
Administration panels are off topic. Even the presence of an administration panel on a system, because they take over the systems in strange and non-standard ways, making it difficult or even impossible for actual system administrators to manage the servers normally, and tend to indicate low-quality questions from users with insufficient knowledge for this site.

@Sparki Feel free to see the question I asked about Active Directory naming last year, which links other questions on the topic, Microsoft's official recommendation and other third party resources.

comment Folder Redirection for user logging into workstation and server
This proposal is, at best, security theater, and won't actually achieve what he wants to achieve. I'd push back and try to get him to understand the absolutely 0 impact this change would have, before doing any work to implement something useless.

comment SBS 2008 CSR remove .local
Well, the problem is that it's broken now because their Active Directory has an invalid DNS name, and public certificate authorities will no longer issue certificates for such domains. The solution is to migrate to a properly named domain. Full stop. Since the platform their current domain is on is near the end of its life, it would probably be advisable to migrate to a newer platform while you're at it than to migrate to a new SBS 2008 domain, only to have to migrate again in ~2 years when the platform goes EoL. Either way, the answer is "migrate to a new domain with a proper name."

comment SBS 2008 CSR remove .local
Yup, it's time to migrate to a new forest. One that conforms to proper Active Directory naming practices, and doesn't use an illegal/invalid DNS name. May as well ditch SBS 2008, while you're at it, since EoL for that is only a couple years out.

comment Best practices for time syncing a WS2012R2 domain controller that is a Hyper-V virtual machine?
@riahc3 Yes, you should never sync from multiple time sources. So if you configure the VM to sync from a different time source, you should disable the time syn between host and guest.

@riahc3 Yes, it's the best practice, period. And I don't know why you got downvoted.
