comment GPO Computer Settings not updating. Default Domain policy and all User Settings work fine
How many DCs do you have? Can your clients communicate with all? Do all your DCs have consistent Netlogon/Sysvol shares (or are some files/folder missing on some DCs)?

comment How to subnet hosted VMs
Is it just a typo or do you really have your firewall on 192.168.0.0/24 and your VMs on 192.168.1.0/30? If this is the case there is no way for your firewall to route because your VMs are not on the same subnet to start...

comment Two domain controllers took forever to boot
@Joeqwerty & Chris S - MS Best Practice Analyzer for 2008 R2 DCs will inform you that your DCs should point to an different DNS server for primary and localhost for secondary. (I don't think it would be helpful when all DNS servers are down though...)

comment Problem with DNS on Windows 2008 R2
For #1, it wants Server A to have the Primary DNS as Server B and the Secondary DNS as the loopback address, and the reverse setup on Server B. (I suspect you have the primary set to the 192.168.1.X address of the server.)

If you aren't going to host your own email Windows Server Foundation might be a better fit. microsoft.com/windowsserver2008/en/us/foundation.aspx

comment Key Things to look for in a Data Center
It would have been nice... Our DC said we weren't allowed to have a UPS in our racks, they gave us a reason, but I don't recall what it was.
