comment Multiple IPv6 addresses added to interface, now IPv6 not working on my server
So it dies at 4000, but not the 1000 you need? Are you adding the entire block?

I'd start over and see exactly when the number of addresses causes a failure.

Why do you need to set the PE admin password. What are you trying to do?

comment Windows Server 2008 R2, slow ntfs operation
So both .net and old windows calls are fast. Explorer does a bunch of other stuff (sorting, metadata reads) which doesn't make it a reasonable test of server file access. Whatever the issue is, it doesn't sound like its an OS issue. Drive alignment can cause slowness, but that's all over the OS, not just 1 app. Another test is to try copying files and see if that's inordinately slow.

comment Windows Server 2008 R2, slow ntfs operation
There are a number of reasons explorer might bevdloe (AV settings, folder optimization settings-just top of mind) but n application shouldn't be using windows shell calls to open files, so if your command prompt is not responding slowly then its not the file system. You can also try a dir from powershell and see if that makes any difference.

comment Windows Server 2008 R2, slow ntfs operation
Its most certainly not ntfs, if you can't find anything it could be that the software was simply written poorly for windows - which would explain the "its windows, not us" excuse.

comment How to disable all the admins accounts except built-in administrator on a domain?
Well your part way there, if you create an admin forest you can disable all admin rights in the production forest and assign admin rights to the admin forest.

comment Windows treats mapped drives differently based on host server type (Netware vs 2008R2), file create issues
It took me a while to even find (much to my amazement) that there even was a win10 NetWare redirector. Its likely the client was written at the wrong trust level, but it is time to retire NetWare, its neither pervasive or well supported on any of the client OSes listed. While I'm not sure the bonfire is required, I'd also agree its time to leave the 80s behind on the clients.

comment For Windows Server 2012 R2 do you need to install DNS or have a DNSS to use WDS?
If you have a segregated build network you'd have no DNS but you'd neither need nor want WDS in that case.
