This is probably spam.

comment What are the requirements for an IT department?
You should not be asking strangers on the internet for this information. This question is off topic and will be massively downvoted shortly and will cease to exist on this website shortly after that. Ask your team for the answer.

+1 for your profile update, tons of us feel the same way.

comment Web server is working, but ping returns a request timeout for icmp_seq
I agree with @joeqwerty, switch the method of testing to something other than ping, it's a poor test and will bring you much headache in future. Perhaps test for a 200OK response?

comment Can I make a site-to-site VPN with a public IP on one side only?
Either move buildings or use your own ISP, because it has to be routed through the Internet routable IP address. You might be able to initiate the connection from the unknown side as Daniel suggested, or talk to the building's IT and see if you can bum a separate IP address from their ISP for a small fee, that piggybacks on their connection.

comment GPO option for “Show Desktop Icons”?
Also, if there was not a specific policy to do this, you could always add this reg key to the gpo.

comment Dell T5810 SCCM Drivers for WinPE
@Jason I used to have that problem as well, w/ different Dell models. Let me ask you, is there a possibility your task sequence reboots into a different WinPE image? Even the slightest possibility? Logs will confirm btw

comment Setting up multiple sites on one IP address
@GuilhemMalfre just b/c it's possible, doesn't mean it should be done. Think about the poor user experience and confusion that would result from such a solution.

comment windows 7 on hp proliant DL160 G9
When you downloaded the drivers to USB, did you unzip or otherwise put the raw files on the USB drive? .ini, .inf files, etc.? From what I've seen the 2008 R2 drivers should work with 7, granted it's not an official 'guarantee'.

comment How to filter settings within a GPO that only applies to Windows XP?
That's right. Short of checking each individual policy setting for the operating system setting, there isn't one. If OP is using Item level targeting he can skip XP altogether, but that's neither here nor there.

This may be an XY problem, as in the question you may want to ask is Why(Is?) Group policy slowing down boot up time on my clients?

comment Windows Server Administration - which services are safe to run internet facing?
@TomTom +1, it only adds unneeded complexity in most cases, and worst case the user would eat up a VPN license and porcessing power of the VPN. In addition to TS Gateway, you could also do RDPWeb as well.
