Enterprise Administrator at one of the largest Microsoft Active Directory installations in the world. In addition to most things Microsoft and Windows, I also maintain IIS/SQL Servers and write code for managing the infrastructure of the organization.

comment Search AD for empty sAMAccountName & userPrincipalName
Are you really expecting to find a user account with no samAccountName? That should not occur, and the system will not allow a user account to have an empty samAccountName if you try to clear it.

comment Password reset fails for end users when minimum password age set for more than 0 days
@Shane Madden: That seems backwards. Setting pwdLastSet to zero sets the ADS_UF_PASSWORD_EXPIRED flag in UserAccountControl. That flag is read only and is only set by the system. msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa772300%28v=vs.85%29.aspx. They may be setting pwdLastSet to zero first, then setting the password to the temporary password value.

Changing product key from eval to standard should work. cscript slmgr.vbs /ipk is another option.

comment Windows TCP Window Scaling Hitting plateau too early
The 200 ms delay is probably the Nagle algorithm in action. As data is received by TCP on a particular connection, it sends an acknowledgement back only if one of the following conditions is true: No acknowledgement was sent for the previous segment received; A segment is received, but no other segment arrives within 200 milliseconds for that connection.
