Use a GP script or GPP to modify the registry keys. What exactly have you tried already?

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.

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? PS: no one owes you an explanation for their down-votes, perhaps hover over the down-vote arrow to get an idea as to why they may have clicked it. :)

comment Can I use the GroupPolicy PowerShell module on non-AD standalone servers?
I'm confused. If there's no AD domain, then what Group Policies do you expect to interface with? What are you actually trying to accomplish?

comment How to modify user data on Exchange
Approach it from the angle "I'm trying to do X in Java, here's what I've got so far, and where I'm getting stuck..." and SO folks will help. :) If you're stick to Windows and AD, I'd advise considering PowerShell over Java. Using PS you can make "simple" scripts to do this stuff for you.

comment How to modify user data on Exchange
If it's actually AD-centric/Non-Exhcnage-centric information that you want to change, then you can just access AD directly, as long as you're on that domain. As-si you question doesnt' really reflect what you seem to actually want to edit, I'd suggest editing and rewording/updating it to be about exactly what you want to accomplish. All this talk of "Exchange via EWS" is a bit of a red herring, and doesn't provide enough info. If this is actually a "How do I access AD info via Java" then it's probably better off being migrated over to StackOverflow.com.

comment How to modify user data on Exchange
If you mean the GAL (Global Contact List), its just that, Global; it doesn't belong to any one user. Have you successfully managed to log in as yourself and grab a different users' contacts yet? I think you need to define your exact goal a little better for us to be able to help you, as "employee's information" is very vague. Exactly which employee information are you trying to update?

comment How to modify user data on Exchange
EWS is the way to go, but your goal is a little muddy. In general, just specify a different Identity in your EWS commands to change which user you're targeting. But, how exactly are you accessing EWS? What have you tried so far?
