comment command line - switch to administrator mode
@Sk8erPeter *sigh* The average user is already being forced to create separate accounts during the installation process (and has been for more than a decade). Only that Microsoft chose to make that additional user a member of the Administrators group as well rather than doing The Right Thing(tm). Anyway, I don't think SF is the right place for this kind of discussion, so I'll excuse myself from it.

comment command line - switch to administrator mode
@Sk8erPeter As I already said: the solution to the problem is using separate accounts for administrative and non-administrative tasks (a solution that has been working since Windows 2000 at least, and on Unix even longer than that). UAC is just a lame way of working around the issue and making everything more complicated in the process. And sudo is something entirely different from UAC as it allows to selectively grant privileged execution of particular commands on particular hosts to particular groups/users.

comment command line - switch to administrator mode
@Sk8erPeter I am quite serious about this. If you're aiming for a secure system: disable UAC and use separate accounts (an admin account for administrative tasks and an account without administrative privileges for day-to-day work). UAC is just a lame workaround that Microsoft invented so that their customers can remain members of the administrators group all the time without actually having admin privileges all the time.

comment shell script in crontab, not all output being logged
You do the output redirection in the cron job. Instead of that you could modify ftp-getter.sh so that the output redirection is done inside the script. Or you could write a wrapper script with the command /bin/bash /home/user/ftp-getter.sh >> /var/log/ftp-getter.log 2>&1 and then just call that wrapper script in the cron job (*/5 * * * * /home/user/wrapper.sh).

Descriptor 1 is STDOUT. That's the default, so it's already covered by >>. If no additional descriptors are used, try moving the output redirection into the and see if that helps.

comment Cannot create a new domain in an existing active directory forest
Can you resolve the hostnames of both servers on both servers forward and reverse? Do you run dcpromo with a domain admin account? Is the Windows Firewall disabled on both servers?

comment Postfix: Relay access denied through SASL with permit_sasl_authenticated setted
The login lines you see in the log are from imapd (for retrieving mail), not from smtpd (for sending mail). Please update your question with at least the output of postconf -n, better yet with the output of the saslfinger command.
