comment Windows 7 RunAs appwiz.cpl
Does using "runas /user:domain\adminuser rundll32.exe shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL appwiz.cpl" as the launch command work any better/differently? Often I'll just use Runas to fire up a MSC, give the user temporary local admin access, do the work I need to do as them, then remove the access before disconnecting, so I've never personally run into what you're describing.

comment Documenting Group Policy
The Windows Settings are in those documents you linked to. At least the Server 2008R2 and Windows 7 version has them ("Computer Configuration\Windows Settings" on the "Security" sheet/tab). The "Computer Configuration\Software Settings" are not included (most likely) because it is for Software Distribution and there are multiple parts/paths involved in using the Software Dist. system, so the reference doesn't cover them as there is not just a simple Registry entry associated with it to be referenced.

@MrCHong The point of Group Policy is so that you DON'T have to visit each computer.

comment Suggestions for Method of access restriction in organization
No problem. ;) In the end, this is a ServerFault question (since it's about supporting a work network), and is most likely a dupe over there. :)

comment How to setup a daily backup virtual machine running on VMWare?
Voted to migrate to ServerFault. Maybe check out superuser.com/questions/43690/… and superuser.com/questions/102080/… for some ideas

If 4 more people agree it should be there, it will be auto-magically moved. :)

I voted to migrate it to ServerFault, as this is more of a professional desktop support issue, and folks over there will have dealt with this stuff more often (I would think).

Ahh, so the router had a DHCP server turned on?

Unfortunately this has gotten way beyond what a single Stack Exchange question can achieve. You may want to post your cross-over cable questions as new ones (after reading up a bit on them).

Uhmm, I'm beginning to think you may be out of your element if you have to ask that. :)

Yup, patch cords ends can get brittle/loose after sitting in the same spot for a long time and then moved. Especially if the patches suck (like solid-core patch cables, or worse, solid-core patch cables with stranded-cable ends :) ).

comment Some clients fail to obtain IP addresses after moving servers
Nope, but hey, it's your sever to try. :) If it's as you said, and you just moved it and it's still plugged into the same switch (port), then the software stack shouldn't care at all. How did you test the jacks? Were they just connection tested, or were other tests performed as well?

Have you considered temporarily rolling the rack back to where it was and see how it works? Bad jack in the new room perhaps?

comment Sysprep vs cloning or a mixture of the two?
See What is sysprep? how is it useful? and Looking for a software capable of cloning a System drive?. But in reality, this is a question for ServerFault (and has been asked many times over there), so I'm voting to migrate it there.
