comment I deployed Flash Player via a Software Installation policy. How to upgrade?
@satchel_74 - I've, historically, been very wary of the "Immediately uninstall..." setting in GPOs since, basically, you're putting an uninstall instruction that cannot be removed with supported tools into the GPO. I've used MSIZAP on 32-bit Windows 7 machines w/o problems. I haven't extensively tested it and I'm, honestly, not sure what the behavior would be on 64-bit machines. (I don't believe there was ever an x64 version of MSIZAP.) It's a tool I try to avoid using whenever possible, ultimately.

comment New implementation of home and department shares; help me get it right the first time?
@phil - It's a frustrating situation. I'd love to see a "magic bullet" that solves the problem. (I used to think that something more like Sharepoint "Document Libraries" or tag-based solutions might be a good solution, but they become disorganized hell, too. Basically, anything that requires people to do work to categorize data seems to fail in the face of vehement indifference by users, managers, etc.)

comment AD migration from SBS2011 to 2012 R2 and new domain
@zman - It sounds like you're asking for an explicit link to a Microsoft document indicating that a domain rename in an Exchange 2010 environment isn't supported. I don't have such a link handy, but here's a reference to Exchange 2007. (It's not supported in Exchange 2007 or later.) technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd577077(v=exchg.80).aspx

comment After domain rename - will I need to rejoin all users to the new domain?
I'm having a hard time parsing your comment. All domain member computers must be rebooted twice when the domain is in the process of being renamed. That's reflected in my answer and in the document it links to.

comment How can I figure out my LDAP connection string?
@DineshKumarP: I'm having a little trouble parsing you. The Membership Provider uses a valid credential in the Active Directory (AD) to bind to the Directory. The computer running the Membership Provider doesn't need to be a member of any AD domain, but you have to configure it with a valid credential from the AD in order for it to function.
