comment How do I turn windows features on or off using powershell or commandline in windows 7?
I was able to run Enable-WindowsOptionalFeature -FeatureName NetFx3 -Online on a Windows 8.1 machine without installing the AIK. I did, however, have the WMF5 preview installed; perhaps that provides it? The module is loaded from C:\windows\system32\windowspowershell\v1.0\Modules\Dism\Dism.psm1

comment What happens when I “offline” a disk and is there a difference between diskpart.exe and the disk management snap-in?
Do you know what processes occur in either case? ACL changes, a bit flipped in the kernel, etc?

Removed references to Virtualbox, as it is considered off topic.

comment Windows 2008 R2 gpupdate locks my user account
I wish I could give you more than one upvote. I never would have thought of looking in the SYSTEM account's context for saved credentials like this.

comment How can I check from the command line if a reboot is required on RHEL or CentOS?
BeyondTrust's pbis-open package requests the user to reboot after installation via stdout.

comment Unable to install Powershell 4
Is there any verification from an authoritative source that there's a compatibility issue between .NET 4.5.1 and WMF 4.0? If so, it would be helpful to have a link added to the answer. I was unable to duplicate the stated problem on Server 2008 R2 SP1. Installing NDP451-KB2858728-x86-x64-AllOS-ENU.exe, then Windows6.1-KB2819745-x64-MultiPkg.msu, then performing a reboot resulted in a working PowerShell v4 installation.

comment Log LDAP access of the Active directory
In general, you can get the analogous Server 2003 security event ID by subtracting 4096 from the Server 2008 event ID. In this case, you end up with an event ID of 528. windowsitpro.com/systems-management/…
