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.

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.

comment PHP installation on IIS: ISAPI or CGI?
@Pacerier - I didn't write it. Were I to want to do it I'd refer to Windows Server 2003, colloquially, as W2K3.

comment PHP installation on IIS: ISAPI or CGI?
@Pacerier - It's just a colloquialism. From a pedantic point of view the question should be edited to make it more clear, at which point the name "Windows Server 2003" should probably be substituted, since that's the formal name of thae product (sans the "Edition" portion of the name-- but since this is an IIS question it applies to all editions of the product). I don't think it would add any particular value to the question to edit it.

They aren't, in any meaningful sense. In the past some people thought they were. When the ISAPI ecosystem was "young" there were many ISAPI applications that suffered from stability issues (mainly because they were "leaky" when it came to resources). Some people saw CGI-based applications as more stable than ISAPI-based applications. CGI-based applications, starting as a fresh process for each request, didn't suffer from the resource leakage problems that a long-running application might. Now that the ISAPI ecosystem has matured any of these perceived advantages are, to my mind, gone.
