comment IPv6 connections from outside the LAN are timing out; what is blocking the connection?
IPv6 has multiple classes of address space, are you using the publically routable address or link local address?

@ScottPack agreed - sticking in a link doesn't cut it, so it should be closed

comment Determine hostname of Windows system on network
What OS? I'm getting system.string objects in both cases? select should be adding a new noteproperty of type system.string with the name of "name" in the first case (because select has to add the property ), and since for each you are choosing to emit only the name property you only get the system.string. The reason you get the default table is because of the formatting definition of a select object, but both properties are strings (with select if you don't want the object you'd need some more parenthesis)

comment should anonymous access to the IPC share be allowed on Windows 2008 r2
While my answer was for some odd reason downvoted, it reflects the guidance from the Microsoft guide on the matter. Also use the group policy settings rather than the reg keys.

comment localhost as computer name
It matters because its not s single label without a suffix which it sounds like what you are asking or are you trying to compare red hat naming localhost.localdomain to windows with localhost. My point is that fedora defaults to setting more than just localhost but a suffix as well, and I pointed to the doc showing it- that's it, and its important to point that out because your question may not be read by someone that understands both OSes.

Additionally it changes if you use a single label domain.

The default sets both according to the docs, not just the hostname.

comment Connecting AD to multiple networks. Use firewall rule or dual NIC?
Not only is multi homing a bad idea but putting a firewall between a DC and clients is also bad

comment Is there a way to disable “check online for updates from windows update” in windows update settings?
it's possible but why would you want your users to not be able to install updates whenever they need to? I see this somewhat often and am often puzzled since when I do security reviews this setting is a fail. It's a guarantee that an application or system can get exploited. By default since you've configured WU to use WSUS the only reason a user would use WU is because they are away from the WSUS server or you haven't put the update in WSUS yet.
