comment NETLOGON scripts not being executed
@AlexanderMiles - I'm definitely moving away from scripts, as well. GPP works too well not to use.

comment Inherited Ill-Conceived Hyper-V Thin-Client Environment: what now?
There's not enough here to go on. Describe the requirements the system is supposed to fulfill and how it is failing to do so. Describe the issues the Customer is having with it. Somebody spec'd this stuff based on some kind of requirements.

revised Can you obtain a list of users via ADFS?
I phrased it to be more like how I'd sound if I wrote it.

comment Google Chrome: passthrough Windows authentication
@SimonEast - I don't see it as productive. If you, or others do, so be it. I don't, personally.

comment Google Chrome: passthrough Windows authentication
@SimonEast - I'm going to assume you're referring to my answer (my 77th, ever), and not my comment re: "communism". re: the answer - That's absolutely true-- as are a lot of answers across all the Stack Exchange sites. I'd presume that having a date stamped on my answer makes readers painfully aware that the information is likely out of date. I don't, personally, see it as a productive activity to spend time searching for 6+ year old answers that are already low on vote counts ( as compared to the accepted answer) and downvoting them but if that makes you happy please feel free.

comment Windows Active Directory naming best practices?
@wasabi - I'm not aware of Office365 having any dependence on the AD domain name. Granted, I have limited experience with it, only having assisted in migrations to off-premise Exchange for only a couple of Customers, but the integration with the on-site AD is reasonably arms-length (through ADFS, DirSync, etc).

comment How do I set the ORACLE_HOME variable for the Local System account?
@daveloyall - I'm not following you. The System section of the "Environment Variables" dialog, accessible from the "Advanced" tab of the computer's "Properties" sheet is definitely present in Windows Server 2008 R2 (and later versions of Windows Server). An environment variable specified there will be available in the default environment of all newly-created processes after the entry is added (unless overridden by a user-level environment variable). I don't see any behavior differences in W2K8R2 as compared with earlier or later versions of Windows Server. Perhaps you can elaborate.

comment Windows Active Directory naming best practices?
I am not aware of any email server product that requires you to use the AD domain name as the users' email address suffix. Exchange has never required any kind of correlation between the AD domain name and email address suffixes.
