comment What is a difference between a member of “Users” group and not a member of any group on Windows?
Note, you can take users out of the default users group, if you add another group and make that the users primary group. I've had to do that before on shoddy setups where the default user account had too many permissions to allow for low permission users.

comment How can I prevent Terminal Server Users from restarting the server after an Automatic Update?
@rachel: "Let me choose when to install" is Microsoft-ese for "Bug me every 10 minutes until I click 'install'". If they have to be on, set it to reboot automatically at a convenient time.

@sirtap: Just because it's Cake eating cycles, don't assume the problem is Cake's problem. More likely the code is doing something stupid with Cake. Also Cake. (Needed to say Cake one more time.)

comment Should I be worried about server load peaks?
I agree. A few spikes in the off hours are fine, as long as important things don't grind to a halt. You can always use nice to keep the scripts from eating all the cycles...Might double the run-time, but if performance isn't impacted, so what?

comment Advice on Active Directory design for multihomed servers
Well, I suppose there is no reason you can't set up two domains, and then lump them into a tree/forest, and call it a day. Then you could use the built-in stuff to manage most of the issues. Still, someone needs to slap the stupid out of them. This is no way to build a network.
