comment GPMC missing Hide/Show links
Interesting. It was already disabled. I enabled and then disabled it again and that fixed it. Weird. Thanks though! :)

comment Why would a portion of a website work outside my LAN, and not inside it?
If you access it by its LAN name/IP from within the LAN does it work?

comment Configure startup programs for a user AD-wide
Yes it's possible and pretty easy via Group Policy -- if you're the admin of the AD. Are you?

comment Can see files on server but cannot open them- intermittent
Question about company networks are off-topic for SU. There's just too many variables that you (as an end user) can't test or control to determine if solutions are helping or not, and if you can't provide basic information like the Server OS, then our hands are pretty much tied (IMO anyway).

comment Where, in Exchange, can rules from other sources be removed?
The rules are either server-side, or client-side. So exist either on the Exchange server, or on the phone. Are the messages getting moved BEFORE he checks in (as soon as they hit the server)? Have you checked the Exchange server for server-side rules being applied to his account? Which Mail application is he using on the phone? Have you checked it for rules that may be applied?

comment Change DHCP on server 2k3
If you're also using the server as your clients' DNS (which you should be), you should next look into having DHCP auto-update DNS. It's handy. :)

comment Change DHCP on server 2k3
It's up to you. Personally I apply them at each scope, since often each scope will have different options. Helps prevent surprise settings from the server-level being distributed to a scope you add later on.

comment Need help to understand why server has suddenly crashed
well if you were having trouble accessing the shares, and this error is related to networking and share connections then you either have a faulty network adapter driver, a faulty network adapter, or a faulty network. :) With the details you've provided, it's impossible for us to say.

comment Need help to understand why server has suddenly crashed
srv2.sys is there to deal with SMB - start with updating your network adapter(s) drivers. How many times has it done this? Is it doing it repeatedly?

comment Can I connect many on-prem sites to the same virtual network in Azure?
Assuming simple networks at the branches and that you're not triyn got interconnect those two branches via the Azure vnet, then if you use the branch's central router as your VPN end-point then you should have to set up 0 additional routing, as the router will know when to send it across the VPN. Once it's setup it works just like any other VPN, if you're not familiar with how VPNs work, then I'd start investigating that first.

comment Can I connect many on-prem sites to the same virtual network in Azure?
Depends on how they are currently interconnected (if at all). If they are two stand-alone networks then you'll need 2 VPN connecitons, one for each branch.

comment Can I connect many on-prem sites to the same virtual network in Azure?
How do you expect to communicate with Azure without using the Internet? I'm not sure why you think you need new equipment to access the VM? How exactly/In what ways do you want to access it? Are you trying to integrate AD between both branches and your Azure virtual network? What have you tried already?

comment Drive Maps via Group Policy - Overlapping Policies
We'll need more information. Use GPResult to determine if/how they are being applied via GP. If they don't show up in the GPP settings list, then they are either being added by a script, or they are drive mapped locally on the computer.

comment Adding internal A-record to a second level domain
If you can't change ANYTHING about the computer or the network, you're pretty much out of luck and your question is unanswerable. I'd discuss this with your IT. If it's a company system that you have no control over, then you're not going to be able to specify a different DNS server to use, and if you do manage to pull it off, then it can be considered an attempt to circumvent company polices, and may get you fired.

comment Adding internal A-record to a second level domain
Yeah, your question is very unclear. :) So you're talking about adding your internal IP address to an external DNS server hosted outside your network, so that when you use the domain name within the LAN, it returns the local (LAN-level) IP? And you don't expect this to work outside of said LAN, right? :) Why not just use the HOSTS file on your PC(s)?

comment Adding internal A-record to a second level domain
If, as you say, you can't add to your internal DNS, then how do you expect to add an a-record to it? If you just asking if you can set up an internal DNS to provide internal IPs and forward all other requests, then yes you can do it, and there's a few questions on here regarding that. As-is this one is too broad (IMO). What have you tried already? Where are you getting stuck exactly?
