comment Cannot Join Client Computer to Server Domain (Windows Server 2012 r2)?
To supplement this: after setting the DNS on the server to 10.0.0.5/127.0.0.1, you'll want to make sure the DNS service on that machine as a working forwarder (it probably does, but you'll still want to check this). Even if it already has a working forwarder, you may want to set the preferred forwarder to your ISP's DNS or other preferred service such as 8.8.8.8.

Most queries will run and finish in much less than a second, and never show on your list.

It's not asking you to delete the log file. It's asking you to change the configuration to never try to write to that file in the first place.

comment How to bind a WiFi to a computer in network with multiple access points with same SSID?
Additionally, sometimes you want a device to connect to a weaker AP. Imagine a scenario where a bunch of students gather together with their laptops for a study group, so you have many devices all near the same AP. If some of those laptops can get a good-enough signal from a different AP that is nearby on a different channel, then the WiFi will work better for everyone.

This is a really bad idea. If you're talking wifi, you're talking laptops, and the whole point for laptops is that they move. A good AP on one connection will be the weak AP on the next, because the laptop moved to a different place. Binding laptops to specific APs is a recipe for disaster.

comment How do I determine if strong key protection is enabled for a certificate private key in Server 2008 R2?
I will "+1" this later, but right now as long as the score stays at 0 the question shows on the "unanswered" view.

This led me to re-install the certificate, at which time the certificate no longer showed a private key. I did a certutil -repairstore for the certificate, and now I can use ldp.exe, but if and only if I use the fully-qualified name of the DC. I was hoping to use this to allow access through our firewall from a specific outside IP that would only connect via IP. Hoping I don't have to get DigiCert to re-issue the certificate.

Nevermind. Forgot the "MY" parameter.

I run certutil.exe -store and I only see the black shell window. This window also only shows 5 certificates, none of which is the certificate I'm trying to use. I'm sure the certificate is installed in the Computer account's Personal store.

comment Disable caching in IIS 7.5?
It covers a lot of things, but there are still questions about your development environment.

comment Disable caching in IIS 7.5?
Again: this does work. Either triple and quadruple check that it's not your development environment doing something weird, or check that it's not your browser going beyond what the web server is asking of it. Browsers these days can be very aggressive on their own about caching what they think is static content. Try holding down the shift key as you refresh a page. Most browsers will treat that as indication to ignore or replace cached content.

That RootDN is definitely one issue, but as you alluded, probably not the only issue.
