comment How to check Windows Server 2008 R2 RDS grace period remaining days
This does indeed work. The command was failing because there should have been a double backslash after "namespace:"

comment PowerShell Remoting w/ Exchange 2010: Value cannot be null
Yup. They run fine on the server under the same account. Any type of remoting (invoke-command or interactive) fails.

comment Remote Desktop Connection for Mac cannot log in to Windows Terminal Server if user's password expired
I have not verified that they have the latest client. I have one user that might be capable of doing this for me. I'll check with him and post back.

The GFI MailArchiver server is on Windows Server 2003. All servers are on the same domain.

comment How to filter event in a task-schedule?
If you let us know what the differences between the two events you're trying to filter are, we can help you with that filter. If you continue to hold all the details close to your chest, our hands are tied.

comment Powershell 2: Add multiple members to distribution group with one call?
My results: Add-DistributionGroupMember x 1000 : 2m 13s --- New-DistributionGroup $arrayof1000Contacts : 17s = significant enough difference to care

comment Powershell 2: Add multiple members to distribution group with one call?
What is this evidence? I'd be curious to see if what you did was a true "apples-to-apples" comparison. I'd like to run the test myself.

comment Why can't I ping my server?
You can only choose one answer. I tend to pick the one that will be most helpful to someone who might come across this page when they themselves are trying to resolve a similar problem. You may upvote more than one answer and should do so if they were of assistance to you.

comment How can I develop a strategy for serving 45 second videos to hundreds of thousands of users?
A T1 (if we're talking about the same T1) is going to be woefully inadequate for this job.

comment Listing Users using RDP
Updated to extract just the names. I don't know exactly what you want to see on the output, so I'll let you sort that bit out. If you need help, ask.

comment How do I use PowerShell to find out what jobs failed within the past 24 hours?
That won't return jobs that failed in the last 24 hours, but then ran successfully after that.

comment How can I script creating email aliases for existing mailboxes in Exchange 2003?
@Bernhard - I'm not sure that you're convinced, but this is the way to go. Pay special attention to the bits about "replacement strings". These are what allow you to customize the front-end of the e-mail address (rather than just the domain suffixes). support.microsoft.com/kb/822447

comment Has anyone used WMI_OfflineFilesCache::RenameItem to rename offline files?
Sorry, that was unclear. This API can be accessed through Powershell if necessary. It's not easy, but it's an option.

comment Terminal Server: how to map network drive for all users?
Ah, this will not work for you since preference items are only available in domain-based GPOs. Are you sure you can't convince someone with domain rights to craft that policy for you? If not, you're stuck with a logon script and some "net use" commands.

comment How to check login history fo remote desktop connections to my Windows Server 2008 R2
@quanta, those steps will not work for this user since that question dealt with Windows Server 2003. The event IDs have changed since Vista and Windows Server 2008.

comment How to automatically install Windows XP on multiple computers?
@tombull89, this type of question is exactly the type of question that should be asked on serverfault. It falls squarely in the system administration camp. He didn't ask anyone to do it for him, he simply wanted to know what technologies allowed him to accomplish a general goal. Sorry to call you out, because really the first 75% of your response was exactly what he needed, but the last bit rubbed me the wrong way. I just cringe when I see unnecessarily harsh responses to newer users.

comment TaskKill very slow
Sorry, didn't mean to ignore that aspect of the question, but I really can't say for sure. I was hoping you'd test it and let us know. The answer to that question might be service specific. Nixphoe's method might help as long as there isn't a specific order that the services must be stopped.
