comment Is there any way to configure client certificate authentication for ARR in IIS without mapping to a user?
I'm not sure about ARR, but in standalone IIS sites you can use client certs without doing any actually mappings in the IIS config. My application logic picks up the certificate information and maps it to a custom user database.

comment IIS: requesting PNG returns 401
You get a 401.3 which means Unauthorized due to ACL on resource., run icacls.exe .\millenium_falcon.png and compare the results with icacls.exe .\background.jpg The png file is missing some permissions, system, your user and administrators is not sufficient. The easiest fix would be to add read permissions to users assuming this is a dev workstation. On a live server you should use more specific permissions for the application pool identity.

comment Hyper-V Host Requirements
Considering you plan to run 3 guest- plus the host OS, I think 8 GB RAM for the host may not be enough. This depends a bit on what the guest OSes are.

comment 403.14 when accessing site remotely, works on the server
You are accessing two different URLs in your logs, what's the log entry for remote /tfs/ ? IIS is usually very good when providing the correct sub-status code, so 403.14 for Directory listing denied should be taken seriously.

comment Detect which application mounted a device
@Denis - In the details of the events, you have ProcessID, and UserID. For most devices this will be PID 4 and S-1-5-18 but it may have the actual process ID. If there process is not running anymore you can use SysMon to log all process starts and then wait to the next mount to happen.

comment MIME/Content type changed after change in server
The MIME type you are setting in IIS are purely for serving files to a browser/downloading files from the server. You are saying your users are uploading *.csv files to the server and that throws an error. What is that error. Normally your code that handles that upload doesn't care about MIME types. Without knowing the error and how the uploaded file is processed, we can't help you.

comment How can I check the expiry details for many SSL certificates deployed on Windows 2008/2012 servers
No you don't. All you need is the few line of PowerShell mentioned in longneck's answer. Remember this is for Windows servers.

comment How can I check the expiry details for many SSL certificates deployed on Windows 2008/2012 servers
This would require a list of URIs to check, also what about certificates that are not bound to web sites? It is much more robust to enumerate the certificates on each server.
