comment Can WSUS, which is integrated with SCCM, be used as an upstream server for the other replica WSUS server?
haha, I understand you may not want to, but that's MS's process, and it's not a common thing. the best thing you can do is use WSUSUtil w/ Powershell, but that looks like it's the only way.

comment Can I stripe 2 volumes on the operating system drive?
@KonradGajewski are you suggesting R5/6 is more resilient than R1/0/10? Or are you just stating facts? Some of us can't tell from your comment.

comment Why many of our WANs use fixed bandwith division between up- and downstream?
I don't think this is too broad, nor do I think it's off topic, however this may benefit from being asked on NetworkEngineering.SE.

comment Silent uninstall of Lenovo ThinkVantage System Update
+1, also I would say that in some cases the exe can be extracted to a bunch of files and folders that may contain an msi as well.

comment How to lock out normal (non-admin) users during software installs?
I have to -1 this, it would work, but if the script is killed in the middle, from some random error or Murphy's Law, then the user can't login and they are dead in the water until IT can respond.

comment How can I find which client(s) is causing my distribution update to fail?
-1, this is a client causing this problem more than likely, but individually perusing 3000 clients for logs indicating something that should already be known to the distribution point is insane. I know what to expect, this is not a question that requires a vague answer, or even a question that can benefit from a vague answer. It's a very specific question.

comment iSCSI or network share
...trying to justify a use for all 4 ports because you think you have to, otherwise they're wasted.. agreed, instead, think of them as upgrade potential.

comment Is showing E-Mail Inline Attachments in Exchange/Outlook a bad practice?
yep, in addition if the OPs org doesn't force one, it'll be whatever the user has installed :-(, so maybe he could enable inline viewing w/ a forced viewer that doesn't automatic execute PDF code?

comment Is showing E-Mail Inline Attachments in Exchange/Outlook a bad practice?
that's true, good point, but I think (could be wrong here) Outlook's default PDF viewer is Adobe Reader, should you have it installed.

comment Remote Server Administration Tools - Granular permission
Brad, welcome to the site, what _exactly is it you want to prevent them from administering? The reason I ask is that some stuff might fall under MS' Role Based Administration, and thus make things a bit easier for you.

comment Which ports are required in order to authenticate against a ldap server in another domain which is behind a firewall?
+1, but he might also want to check w/ the firewall admin on the NY side to make sure they're doing things standard and not doing some freaky port forwarding, or the like.

comment On-site and off-site OS X Sever
Jason welcome to ServerFault. As asked, this type of question isn't a good fit for the site. The best thing to do is break this up into smaller, more specific questions, and also take a look at the best way to ask those questions here. In addition, I'd have to say self hosted email probably isn't necessary these days, given the vastness of cloud storage in comparison. I do wish you success with the company though.

I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is a question for the vendor.
