comment Create new AD account similar to a current user
That what the hidden Default User profile is for. It's a template for new users, but I am not sure how to have multiple profiles and apply them. There are also GPOs and Group Policy Preferences, which would be easy to make different sets of.

comment Specific font in Windows 7 works, but in Windows Server 2003 doesn't. Why?
@ViniciusOttoni: Okay, it's not a Unicode issue then. but something is wrong with your OS installation, or maybe you need to try Windows Update or something.

comment Specific font in Windows 7 works, but in Windows Server 2003 doesn't. Why?
@ViniciusOttoni: I'm not sure - selecting properties in the font folder doesn't tell you much. You can try using a trial version of a font manager, like Extensis Suitcase, which may give your more details, or you can just see if it works okay in Vista, but doesn't in XP or Win2000.

comment How do you override a GPO with another GPO?
When you say 'set this GPO's link order higher than the other GPO', do you mean a numerically higher Precedence, or higher in the list (which would be a lower numerical Precedence)?

@EladDotan: IIRC, for XP all you need to do is replace ipv4 with ip for this particular command.

I enabled 9K jumbo frames on a Hyper-V host's virtual adapter and now I cannot RDP into it. Hmmn.

comment Domain Controller DCdiag error - A Global Catalog Server could not be located
@SpacemanSpiff: I cannot see how your comment explained the first part of my comment, and I said that I have set up Forwarders (if I had not, I would never have had DNS resolution for external sites for all this time), so I still do not understand what I mentioned earlier.

Thanks - that has resolved the problem. If you want to make an answer out of it, I will be pleased to accept it.

comment Domain Controller DCdiag error - A Global Catalog Server could not be located
@SpacemanSpiff: Thanks, I'll add each DC as the other's secondary DNS lookup server. However, I cannot see how this could make any difference, as they will always be able to connect to themselves as primary choice, and they both have the same replicated DNS zone anyway. Of course the DCs have Forwarder for unresolved DNS queries. Is that what you meant, or something else? Cheers.

comment Domain Controller DCdiag error - A Global Catalog Server could not be located
@SpacemanSpiff: I corrected the DNS discrepency I mentioned above, but I still get the error. No, it's just a new replica, not a recovery. I just checked the DNC client settings. They original DC is set to 127.0.0.1 only and the replica is set to an external public DNS server as primary and 127.0.0.1 as secondary. I'll remove the external entry, but should they also include each other as the second entry? As they have replicated DNS databases, would that even make a difference?

comment Domain Controller DCdiag error - A Global Catalog Server could not be located
@ShaneMadden: It was set up through netdom join. I assumed that was all that was needed. The DNS entries appear to have been replicated, apart from the DCs themselves (the original DC appears on both DNS databases, but the replica only appears through dig on the original, but with two entries, one being an out-of-date address).
