comment Setup Azure VM - Connect to internet
It's very likely to be a DNS issue. Check if there are DNS servers configured in the virtual network. If there are some, they must point to actual DNS servers (your own or public ones), and they must be able to resolve Internet names.

comment Forward domain to website hosted on Azure server with a non 80 port
That's true in your case, because you are putting NGINX in front of your web server (it's basically acting as a reverse proxy); but you could also have configured your web server to host multiple sites on the same port and distinguish them using host headers.

comment Forward domain to website hosted on Azure server with a non 80 port
Agreed. "I have multiple websites and therefore they cannot all be port 80"... actually, they can; and they usually do.

They do. And they work perfectly when reconnected to an user account (see my answer).

comment Why does removing the EVERYONE group prevent domain admins from accessing a drive?
The more I stumble on crazy UAC-related issues (i.e., almost daily), the more I want to perform a code revision on its developers' brains...

comment Secure LDAP replication over the Internet
TLS should be enough... but when connecting two (or more) systems across the Internet a proper VPN is generally better than ad-hoc encryption performed at upper layers.

comment Why I cannot initialize disk to MBR in server 2012 with the new Server Manager?
I've seen this, too; looks like they are just silently deprecating MBR. Oh, well, I just don't use that godawfully slow Server Manager anyway...

comment Lync server 2013 - OAuthTokenIssuer certificate missing on some of the Front End servers
Confirmed, re-running the first server deployment step ("Install Local Configuration Store") forces a full download of the up-to-date topology and common certificates.

...although now I'm wondering how would the requirements change if I actually wanted to mount the database, so to be able to perform a direct export...

Same for me; if that's not directly possible, I'll go the restore route and then export from the restored mailbox.
