comment Is there a difference between foreign language windows install and language pack
You can change system-wide language settings (as well as default language settings for new user profiles) from the administrative settings sub-section in Regional Settings.

comment How can I get a list of shared directories on local Windows server?
@Sam The question says nothing about remote servers, it asks for a way to "list all local directories shared on that server" and "the local directories they represent on disk". net view doesn't show the physical paths, net share does. And sure, it doesn't work remotely, but it wasn't asked to do so.

comment Openvpn in Azure : how to resolve hosts
Those are Azure's DNS, which automatically create a public and a private name on-the-fly for each and every Azure VM; but as you have already noticed, they are quite unwieldy. If you need simpler names, you need to run your own DNS.

comment How can I get a list of shared directories on local Windows server?
This is misleading; while the GUI solution works, when going CLI net share should be used to show what is shared on the local server and the corresponding physical paths (which net view doesn't show).

comment Exchange Server 2016 on Windows Server 2016 Technical Preview 4
I understand your need for this kind of testing; but you can't really expect anyone to help you if (when) something doesn't work on a new, beta and unsupported platform. Not here, anyway; try asking on Microsoft forums.

comment 3TB HD reduces to 752GB when converted from basic to dynamic
Are you sure the disks are not being converted to MBR by mistake (or bug)? Have you tried re-initializing them, using the dynamic format fron the start instead of converting them later? (The clean command from diskpart is useful here to wipe all configuration and partitioning info and start fresh.)

comment 3TB HD reduces to 752GB when converted from basic to dynamic
Looks like one of those situations where the BIOS can't properly handle large disks... but then this would happen regardless of the partitioning scheme in use. Converting from basic to dynamic really shouldn't cause this.

comment Connecting to a remote server through a VPN when the local network subnet address conflicts with a remote network
@SpacemanSpiff: While this could solve the issue on the client side, the server would still be unable to reply, because it would see the connection as coming from its own network, not from a VPN client.
