comment Is Background Intelligent Transfer Service responsible for Client Side Caching in Windows 7?
I don't have documentation link yet... You can set BITS to "disabled" and see that Offline Files still sync without issue. Additionally, the "Offline Files" service does not have BITS marked as a dependency.

comment Server won't physically fit in rack: which technical problems will I face in future if I force the mount?
We had cabinets with this same problem. Luckily the vendor had cabinet extensions which allowed adding up to 16 inches.

comment What are the possible issues in using very short DHCP lease time (< 1min)?
Anecdotal: Prior to a DHCP server migration I had dropped the lease time to 5 minutes for 4000ish clients. Migration got delayed and I forgot to reset the lease time for a few weeks. Nothing broke. Sub-minute lease time seems a bit excessive though. Couldn't you scale your scope to accommodate more than 100 addresses?

comment Why can't puppetmaster be installed on windows?
Just because a language is available on different OSes does not in any way guarantee every OS exposes the same interfaces. The puppet devs would be the ones with the most definite answer to your question.

comment Why can't puppetmaster be installed on windows?
Because the puppet team hasn't invested the resources to get puppet master working on Windows.
