comment Run php exec function to stop windows services
Apply the handbrake now! Granting your Apache process access to an "administrative token" is a very bad idea. What are you actually trying to achieve?

comment Shared Drives Intermittently Dropping
I would seriously consider moving your file server role to another server. Running SMB file shares from a DC ranks pretty highly on the "things not to do" list. I appreciate this doesn't answer your question.

comment Windows Server 2003 x64 Rebooting - PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA (50)
Totally agree with Massimo. If the kernel is looking for a page in non-paged memory (physical RAM), and it doesn't find it - BANG! Try swapping out DIMMs.

comment memory leak in nonpaged “file” tag
Cool - thanks. Be interested to hear which process has growing NPP allocations... should be easy to spot if your pool is growing this fast. I am surprised you're not seeing kernel lock-ups.

comment Active Directory Multi Domain Enviornment
Small org... keep to single domain, and use Organisational Units to "partition" your namespace. The only justification that I can see to do the contrary would be an administrative one, i.e.: different people looking after the two orgs. Even then, though, they're still in the same forest, so ultimately, someone still has "god" status. Mumble.. mumble...

comment Fresh installation of Windows Server 2008 and IIS serving up blank pages
OK, my next steps would be to create a simple, static HTML page and ensure that's being served OK. Then, if that's working, I'd use good old Process Monitor (see technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb896645.aspx). Set the filtering to "process name is w3wp.exe" and see what files are being referenced, Etc. Oh, and add the "User name" column to the output.

comment Time problems in a Windows domain
Do you use Group Policy at all? If so, check/modify your Default Computer Policy. Can't remember the exact path, but it's under Computer Configuration ... Administrative Templates ... <something> ... Windows Time <Something>. Here, you can enable the settings, and enforce "NTDS5" time.
