comment AD Local Admins without password sharing
Suggestion 1 is a very bad idea. MS acknowledges that passwords pushed out using GPO GPP's are not secured, and are trivially recovered by any authenticated domain user. See esec-pentest.sogeti.com/…

comment MSTSC crash on connect
Many thanks! This solved my seperate issue. Windows 7 client would RDP to non-NLA machines, but NLA machines would crash with "remote desktop connection has stopped working". Faulting module would be facredprov2.dll. Clearing this cache worked a treat.

comment Router IP (Best Practice)
I agree for the most part, except the password front. Any technician worth his salt would 'expect' to walk into a house and find the password as something OTHER than 'admin'! You don't want malware on a PC, or someone who's made it onto your network, able to easily guess the Router password. Once you have malware or a malicious user on your network, it's almost Game Over, but it's still worth the inconvenience of a sticky note on the router with the password written on it, as opposed to as an easily guessed password.

comment Ubuntu is showing weird HWAddress for eth0 after a power failure
This means that Ubuntu has seen a new NIC and a new MAC address on powerup, and has added the device at eth1. Probable that your NIC has been damaged. Assign a static IP and try for packet flow, or boot into a Live CD as user48838 suggested and see what MAC that OS sees.

comment Howto print from dumb terminals with local print server and remote hosted RDP
You may wish to clarify your network layout - I'm assuming you have site A and site B, with the RDP server in site A and the dumb terminals in site B. You want the RDP server to be able to print to a print server in site B. How are the dumb terminals in site B communicating with the RDP server in site A if the RDP server can't see the print server in site B? Unless I have the wrong idea altogether.

comment How would you build a cheap Virtual Server farm for home development?
VMWare ESXi is an OS in itself, and incredibly lightweight at that. Boots very quickly, and has a LOT less overhead than virtualization software running atop a traditional fully-featured OS. I know I'm heavily advocating VMWare ESXi, but it really is a great platform.

VMWare ESXi is free and fully functional, but without vmotion I believe. Your point about Citrix Xen is moot.
