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.

comment How to recover data from an Exchange 2013 database after a complete Active Directory loss?
...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...

comment How to recover data from an Exchange 2013 database after a complete Active Directory loss?
Same for me; if that's not directly possible, I'll go the restore route and then export from the restored mailbox.

comment How to recover data from an Exchange 2013 database after a complete Active Directory loss?
We only need to export data to PST files, they won't be actually going into any Exchange mailbox; that's why I was taking about exporting rather than restoring; for the same reason, mailbox permissions and x.500 addresses really don't matter. However, you provided valuable information even for more complex requirements than mine, so this is not a problem at all :)
