comment How can I automatically restart a Windows service if it crashes?
Anywhere. With SC failure w3svc command= "MyBatchFile.cmd" it should be in the path or C:\Windows\System32. You can put it in any directory if you use a full path i.e. SC failure w3svc command= "c:\Stuff\MyBatchFile.cmd"

comment Using New-ADComputer's -ServicePrincipalNames
OK - now here's an indication that this is broken code on MS's part - I can use -otherattributes @{serviceprincipalname="HOST/server1","HOST/server1.mydomain.com"} in the New-ADComputer command and it works fine.

comment Using New-ADComputer's -ServicePrincipalNames
Our problem is that the first connections (the new-adcomputer) sometimes hits a different DC then the second (the set-computer). The second DC doesn't have the replicated object yet and we get a failure. We can force a DC, but that's kind of ugly.

Aardvark - seems like it might actually work - google.co.in/… but I haven't seen any further proof.

comment How exactly does the HOST/machine SPN work?
Well, no. SPN's have to be unique. Period. So typically you see a web server with HTTP SPN's via HOST for the machine name, then an alias registered with the SPN HTTP/<alias>. But if you were adding an SPN for a duplicate machine, that would be bad.
