comment How can I determine why a users password change did not succeed?
I was hoping that password change failures are logged somewhere (I couldn't find anything) or that a specific tool exists that allows the user to test their password.

comment How do I apply WinHTTP proxy settings domain-wide?
From what I can tell that would do the equivalent of netsh winhttp import proxy source=ie in Windows Vista. So that doesn't really help me.

comment Is there a specific name for the “.\” (dot-slash) shorthand used to log onto a Windows machine?
.\ is not the shorthand. . is. The backslash is always used to delimit host from user.

comment How do you manage “network locations” through domain group policies?
@BretFisher: Just as you said. It felt legacy and I wanted to see if there are other options. This looked like a much better approach. The concept of drive letters seemed unnecessary, and the drive letter that would fit this network location just perfectly is always already taken by another assignment :D Thanks for your advice.

comment How do you manage “network locations” through domain group policies?
@BretFisher: Oh wow, that really puts my hopes down :( I hoped that there is a built-in approach. For this task at hand I really wouldn't want to roll anything from scratch, mapped network drives are actually an option. I'll look into it though, as this seems like a much more elegant approach. If you don't mind, I'd love to have a look at whatever procmon results you'd want to share. My email is in my profile :)

comment command line - switch to administrator mode
To my understanding, this requires the actual Administrator account to be active (Enter the password for administrator:). It is not identical with simply running the command prompt with elevated privileges.
