comment WDS Creating answer file for boot.wim
Right. So we have now come full circle :) When I boot via PXE into boot.wim (the one ripped from OEM CD), the first screen I am met with is the language selection. Then on to domain credentials, then on to selecting install image, then partitioning. The OP was asking about an unattend.xml for these questions (which I believe you answered with your first link in this answer with the 2 unattend.xml examples). I'm not going to test it though since MDT is working fine. Thanks!

comment WDS Creating answer file for boot.wim
So I'm still not clear then... I should have set the unattend.xml that I created in WSIM for install.wim on my boot.wim? Or if I had the PE pass in the xml file it would have let me use the install.wim to boot with? Or I should have used 2 unattend.xml files; one for boot.wim and another for install.wim?

comment WDS Creating answer file for boot.wim
Ah. Didn't try using the unattend I created for install.wim on the boot image. At any rate, edited the question above with the xml file. Haven't hit any deal-breakers with MDT yet... just a learning process. Wish the docs were more...coordinated maybe? Found most of the helpful stuff on technet and forums; mostly for older versions that pointed me in the right direction.

comment WDS Creating answer file for boot.wim
Well it would start up on the "My language is..." select box (English was not highlighted--but was only a few below the selected lang) then after selecting English would proceed to the partition screen. Re: unattend.xml; I never got to the point of making one (for boot wim). I suppose there might be a default boot unattend.xml file for WDS, but I don't know. In the WDS server properties, enable unattended install is not selected for client (again, didn't get that far). So far am digging MDT; still fighting some battles, but like it. Thx

comment mount multiple folders with nfs4 on centos
Yeah I created /var/shared specifically for the samba shares so rw is fine on that folder. Not sure what's going on with your sub-folder...is fstab rw?

But the symptoms on those patches don't match my error. What should I be looking for in the capture?

OK, will try the cap on a client. I don't understand the last part of your comment...Could you clarify? Thanks.

Perform the capture on the client that is trying to connect? Also, unfortunately (or fortunately), none of those hotfixes are applicable. The closest looking one was the race condition one, but the hotfix scenario doesn't match what it happening here.

Updated OP. Nothing notable in the logs; only see successful opens (e.g. NT_STATUS_OK)

comment windows 7 disk queue (hangs)
@JohnGardeniers indeed. That's why I used the word unusable - as in I could not still do things with it.

comment windows 7 disk queue (hangs)
@JohnGardeniers Heh. Thanks for the heads up. However, if you had read the question, you would have seen that the computer hangs and becomes unusable during the event I was trying to diagnose. As such, there was no way to use a screen capture method other than my cellphone camera.

comment windows 7 disk queue (hangs)
There has been little in eventvwr to go on--no errors around the incidents. I just took another glance, though, and saw another ntpclient discovery error. This one states that it will retry in 3473457 minutes (no joke), so we'll see what happens in 6 years. I noticed an error in PML relating to USB, so on a hunch I went to OEM and reinstalled all the drivers--seems OK for now. Could you add your first comment here as an answer so I can accept it? ProcMon seemed to lead to a fix so I'd appreciate getting you the deserved credit. Thanks again.

Is it normal to have buffer overflows here and there in the PML?

comment practical document encryption in shared environment
Sorry--should have made that clear.. The users are already authenticating two other times (ADS and ssl) so utilizing either of those somehow would be best. Per-document wouldn't work. Transparent would be best.

comment Windows Server 2008 R2 Foundation Group policy being overridden by local policy
Yeah, I can't tell what is going on. It's now happening on another machine again. I don't see any scope issues; there's only 1 policy that is going out (besides default domain policy). But when I run gpresult on the machines, I don't see the Desktop wallpaper setting in the results. I see a bunch of other template settings, but not the wallpaper. I have to manually go into the machines gpedit and set the wallpaper there to get rid of the ridiculous new years wallpapers they set...

comment Windows Server 2008 R2 Foundation Group policy being overridden by local policy
Thanks. But, those are all already set (the prevent changing etc.; they've been set for a while) and these settings are applied to the OU user group; the computer GP settings don't have the same settings as user (e.g. desktop), so that's all set. What's happening is that on this machine, for some reason, the local policy is overriding the Group Policy somehow.

comment ssh connection being assigned wrong IP address
If I run it only connected from my OSX box (which shows as .11 in netstat and aliased in secure.log as .17: :11) it captures nothing. Perhaps the issue is with netstat itself. who shows correct info, as does the login message (last login from..). Netstat is incorrect and I'm not sure what the .17: :11 is in secure.log

comment ssh connection being assigned wrong IP address
The problem seems to be that centOS box is doing something that is aliasing .17 to .11 I'm connecting from .17 which shows up in netstat as .11 and in secure log as .17: 11: If I do as you suggest, I won't be able to connect anymore.

comment ssh connection being assigned wrong IP address
Yeah, it's strange. I'm running OSX on this machine (192.168.1.17) and using terminal to ssh into the centOS box. That is the only access I have to it; it is a datacenter. netstat -antp reveals 6208/1 in the extra column (whatever that means).
