comment Problem getting into our website from within the network
But .local has problems too, especially if there are Macs in the network. My preference is for a subdomain of the real domain, like corp.contoso.com.

comment Restricting Access to Application(s) on Point of Sale system
What about having the manager RDP into one of the workstations from the POS machine? You get fast access to applications, no need to log off from POS machine, and closing the session is fast and secure.

comment Best practice ACLs to prepare for auditors?
Protip: membership in machine-local groups is determined when the SMB session is established, so it is best to make changes when nobody is connected to the fileserver.

comment Best practice ACLs to prepare for auditors?
+1 Nice idea! Just as fast as share permissions, but applied through the file system instead. I guess the permissions would be lost if the files were copied to another server, though.

Although it wasn't exactly the answer I was looking for, your response did lead me to my eventual conclusion so I am accepting your answer.

In Canada, almost everybody can accept credit card payments. So can I assume that nearly every business is subject to PCI DSS?

I like this! It means one extra step when creating new staff accounts, but that's the nature of default deny. :)

comment Unable to browse one server unless using FQDN all others work
I'm having the exact same problem. Pinging the shortname gives a response, but SMB connections to the shortname fail. Both work using the FQDN. No idea what's going on.

comment How to dispose of old rack-mount servers?
I talked to IBM and they wanted me to ship it to a facility 500 miles away, then pay a hefty disposal charge for each machine. I declined.

+1 Thanks for confirming my suspicions. Also, good point about oversized PST files. I think might already be running into problems related to that.
