comment Gentle reboot of batch server (Task Schedular)
The answer is likely "we do not". Task scheduler is not a scheduler app for complex scenarios - so you basically use it outside the intended use case. Some enterprise scheduling app may be better here.

comment Fast Ethernet UDP optimize receive buffers
You are aware that you work under the wrong assumption that 100mbit is a lot of data for a computer to handle? I would be surprised if any optimization would be seful for some that low data throughput. THis is 2015 - most networks today are a lot faster and no tuning is needed.

comment Should I still have a physical DC, even post-Server 2012?
Nice and dandy, but again totally irrelevant UNLESS you have a significant part of your infrastructure out of Hyper-V then. DC's working but file shares, sharepoint, exchange, printing and all other things down - means I rather do not care about the DC being up again ;) It mostly runs down to "have multiple DC and make backups" and that is the case in both sides (Hyper-V and physical).

comment Should I still have a physical DC, even post-Server 2012?
Not sure that makes sense, though - see, for example, I know a company being 100% virtual with the DC and they make regular backups and have 3 dc on 2 continents (2 in europe, 1 in usa).... hard to imagine anything here that blows in a way that makes things not recoverable.

Thorough Explanation likely is "crap drivers". Sadly - i is something that repeatedly happens with Broadcom. Never had an issue with Intel.

comment MSSQL 2008 r2 Express: there is insufficient system memory in resource pool 'internal' to run this query
Then I would consider moving to a newer version. Regardless how you turn it, 2008 R2 is ancient.

Due to the possiblity ofa bug (as per answer) - can you provide the exact build number? (of your SQL Server version). Is it possible to - update to a newer SQL Server express, they are free anyway.

comment Poor iSCSI performance with SSD disks and 10 Gbe network
Not anywhere near enough information and our crystal balls are too expensive to waste them on non paying customers. If you want help, then provide meaningful information that can be used to help you nail things down.

comment Migrate MSSQL 2008R2 to 2012 (new hardware)
Then you misformulated. I was thinking about recommendation in terms of the upgrade approach (backup/restore). Using the new features is recommended - after making sure they are beneficial. Most programs will start not using them.

comment Max SAS throughput of a disk stack?
If each controller uses one of the cables -then yes. But controllers often have multiple links going out and each cabinet can then have it's own separate limit. I for exampel use Adaptec controllers with 2-4 cables going out of each. So the limit may be per shelve ;)

comment Time issue in Windows domain Hyper-V
Upgrade to 2012 R2 - both clients and host. 2012 R2 fixed that issue for good and now the setup is clear: enable time service on bot, virtual DC as well as the host, they work nicely together now.
