comment How to allow some (non-admin) users to edit address/phone properties for all AD users?
In our Windows Server 2008 R2 Environment, it's actually called 'Delegate Control' rather than permissions. I don't know if that changes in other versions Windows Server.

I'll get our DNS guy to look into it. Thanks.

comment DFS-N Fault Tolerance
Doing an nslookup on a client machine only returns information for server A. Running it on server B returns: Sever: Unknown but the correct IP address. So really it might be a DNS issue more likely?

comment Creating Group Policy defined shortcuts to local programs
Had the same error, turned out that I was pointing directly to an MS Access DB file. I had to put the MS Access executable in as the target path, and the filename as the argument. In addition, the filename had spaces in the name so in the argument field I had to surround the filename with quotes (but not the target path field which also had spaces). Once I modified it this way, it worked no problem.

comment Does installing DFS-N on two domain controllers provide DFS root redundancy?
We're looking at splitting some of our file server up, and DFS came up again and again. Several places mentioned using DFS replication to help with some of the actual moving, but my experience has been much the same in testing, replication is hard to verify and kind of kludge (leaning towards the MS File Server Migration toolkit for the move). I think we'll start using DFS using our DC's for Namespace servers and maybe not on the fileserver(s) since we won't be using replication.

I don't think we're going to utilize DFS replication, I think we'll just use DFS to make our UNC paths. We're going to do some moving of files in the background and DFS seems to be a good way of keeping UNC paths the same regardless of where the data moves to. Do you mean DFS is temperamental, or DFS replication is?
