comment Local Group Policy not updating. RSOP and GPResult show stale data
If the machine on a domain? Perhaps domain policies are overriding your local policies. What does the "Origin" column in RSOP.msc state for that specific policy?

comment non-delivery errors on internally sent emails to newly created user
This is (most likely) a misconfiguration on the user's account in Exchange. Voting to migrate to ServerFault.com.

comment Windows 8 not connected to domain network
Perhaps the GPP's set to target only certain operating systems? Have you installed all your updates (specifically support.microsoft.com/kb/2795944)?

That's what I'm trying to clarify... :) How do you use GP to map the drives? Scripts? GPP?

Exactly how are you currently mapping the XP and 7 machines?

I wasn't recommending turning them off permanently, just for testing/observation purposes. :)

comment Utility for notifying a user that their roaming profile is getting too large to copy before shutdown?
IMO, you're approaching this wrong, see my answer. GP is your friend. ;)

Ones related to the roaming profiles, network drops, etc. try looking at the ones happening around the time that you suspect the problem is occurring. But, yeah that's a stupid huge profile.

What makes you think it's because they are "too big"? What related events/errors are being logged? Windows should wait until the profile is copied (or gets an error) before shutting down. As-is, this is basically a shopping request, which is off-topic.

comment Recommended optimum level of free memory in a server
Have you set any memory limits in your SQL instance(s)? If not, they'll consume as much memory as they can. Again though, are you seeing problems/slow-downs, or does it just make you nervous having 93% of the RAM used? Having gobs of free memory that's never used does nothing for you. :)

comment Recommended optimum level of free memory in a server
The amount of memory used/free would depend on what's running on the machine. You also haven't defined if you're talking about processes using the memory, or if it's Windows using it for caching. If things are running well, you WANT the OS to use memory if it's available, as it saves trips to the disk(s).

comment How do I use Group Policy on a domain to delete Temporary Internet Files?
Have you confirmed the GP is being applied to the application servers successfully? Exactly which group policy did you apply? Did you apply it to a container the computer accounts are in, or to a container the user accounts are in?
