comment Is there a .history file on Windows machines?
Yep, but for regular-old "cmd" it looks like the only option. PowerShell isn't in use in this particular situation.

comment Can a Linux server serve as a Domain Controller for Windows Machines?
It wasn't an MS-free solution so much as a cost-free solution that I was looking for. I'll have a look through the SMB stuff, but you and mh may be right about just biting the bullet and using the OOB MS solution.

comment Can a Linux server serve as a Domain Controller for Windows Machines?
You make a good point. We've been looking at both options, and I'd been asked to find the most economical solution...

comment What is the best Antivirus for a Windows Domain Network?
We've been using it in my company for some time. It's not pretty, I grant you, but on over-powered, under-utilized desktop hardware it has done the job well enough.

comment Is it possible to install Windows Vista or 2008 Server on a USB Hard Drive?
And more imporantly, will these operating systems boot from a "removable device", or does a USB connection prevent the system from booting correctly?

comment How can I monitor employees computer activity?
In many jurisdictions in Canada at least, employees would need to be notified in advance of any monitoring taking place. In our case the monitoring is allowed as long as people know that they'll be monitored.

comment Elegantly Enforcing SSL in IIS 6.0
Thanks for that. I really was looking for a server-side (non-code specific) solution for this as we're marking the entire domain as requiring SSL. I'll keep this in mind for any future apps.

comment Elegantly Enforcing SSL in IIS 6.0
As for the code option, the HTTP variant of the site needs to be turned off, that's the whole reason for needing to enforce SSL to begin with. Simply doing a redirect in code (unless it's done at a high level so that it happens on any page) could potentially allow for bookmarked pages to be viewed over the insecure link.

comment Elegantly Enforcing SSL in IIS 6.0
OK. Thanks. I pretty much figured that was the answer. I'd really love to see an "auto-forward" feature in IIS 8 to make this sort of thing automatic. Seems a waste to clog up the IIS metabase with extra sites that are simply redirects.
