comment Is it considered a best practice to delete the DefaultWebSite and App Pools from IIS?
Could you provide some idea of why you do this and how it helps? Your answer presently has very little context.

comment Automatically binding applications to a network interface based on the account they are started with
Hi @Josh, welcome to Super User. If your question is closed, please don't re-ask it. Instead, you can just edit your original question and leave a comment asking for people to consider reopening it based on your edits. I'm going to merge these questions for you now that you've edited it to be more clear, but in the future, please don't re-ask.

comment Deploy hosts file among machines connected to a domain
@Regmi I'm not intimately familiar with how that would work, since I haven't worked with Active Directory in a while. My understanding is that you can use Group Policy to specify a startup script which can run as an administrator. Beyond that I can't offer many details.

comment Deploy hosts file among machines connected to a domain
The problem with that is regular users do not have write access to the directory the hosts file is saved in, so this would not work. You could perhaps include it in a startup script though.

comment ZFS: Removing files from snapshots?
The post you referenced is not an official policy. There is an FAQ on MSO explaining how to handle questions the user thinks are on topic for multiple sites. To summarize, cross posting is disallowed. If you decide after you post that it would be better elsewhere and you haven't gotten good answers, you can flag it to be migrated or you can delete it and re-ask, but you must tailor the post to the site you're asking on. You reposted the exact same question word-for-word without waiting, which fails the guidelines in both meta posts about cross posting.

@TinoDidriksen could you provide a reference to that meta post please? I'd like to see it. Thanks.
