comment exchange 2010 HA questions
With that latency you'll be able to do a live failover of the database(s) no problem. Makes rolling patching a breeze. Enterprise isn't need in your case with the small amount of users you have.

comment Powershell: lastLogonTimestamp blank for some users
@pipTheGeek You're right, the info is replicated, albeit delayed by default.

comment Powershell: lastLogonTimestamp blank for some users
Is there a specific reason you don't want to query all the DCs? It's the only way you're going to get all of the information for every user. LastLogontimestamp data isn't necessary stored on every dc for every user. The reason some commands return that data is that they are built with that caveat in mind.

comment How can we allow all users to view full details for meetings in an Exchange 2010 Resource Mailbox's calendar?
You can't "log into" a room calendar in Exchange 2010, it's not possible. Follow the powershell example below, it's what you want.

You should really contact your local admins and ask them specifically what they are or aren't enforcing in your ActiveSync policy. You should also refer to your local security policy wherever you work, usually they are posted online or on paper. It should state the answers you are looking for.

comment What breaks if someone has a missing or misconfigured “_autodiscover” SRV record
I'm not sure how that is the accepted answer? It doesn't go into what your issue with Out Of Office was. It also is a bit wrong, as public folders are not necessary in a pure Exchange 2010 environment. OOO, OAB, and Free Busy are not shared via public folders in EX 2010, they are web servies, as you can see by the output you pasted below.

Can you go into more detail about your out of office issues? Autodiscover should not be causing issues with that. It may be another issue entirely.

Agreed, it is not critical. But if configured correctly it can save a lot of time and issues with client setup.

comment Outlook 2010 needs a password every 30 minutes
If it's truely random then you have networking issues or autodiscovery issues maybe. The answer above is for a specific condition that can be replicated by enabling Outlook Anywhere for an account and then moving that account to a different mailbox server/database. Have you tried deleting the Outlook profile and resetting it up? What does the "Connection Status" window of Outlook show when you're prompted?

comment Which ports need to be opened on Windows Server 2008 for FileZilla to work?
Check the windows firewall log, assuming you are logging dropped packets. It will show which port is being accessed and denied.

comment Outlook 2010 needs a password every 30 minutes
Changing the auth method to Windows Integrated on the RPC vdir should stop the prompting for your users. However there are many considerations you need to take into account before doing this. It may not be an option for you. TMG/ISA frontends need special consideration/setup when attempting this. Also, this will change how your users use Outlook Anywhere, I.E. a domain will be required when logging in. Etc.
