comment Is it possible for a Windows server to have 2 (or possibly more) network names (or aliases)?
It is the solution. The 'Windows equivalent to a DNS CNAME' is a DNS CNAME, especially so when the windows service concerned is IIS. Simply set your Windows server name to the one you need for file sharing, create your DNS alias, configure IIS to listen for that in its host headers (not strictly necessary but I like to be tidy) and continue on with your day.

comment Finding suitable workload for VM performance evaluation
I "got you right". My point is that the fact that the servers are virtual ones are irrelevant. How would you normally benchmark app performance for a particular app if you were asked to benchmark it on a physical server? You do the same thing for the same app running on a virtual server.

comment Finding suitable workload for VM performance evaluation
What would you do if these were not virtual systems? Ok. Now do that. Nothing magical happened just because someone said "virtual".

comment Is SNMP still used widely as of 2015?
Sad but true. In a heterogeneous environment it's often the one way to get disparate devices talking to one another, especially if installing 'agents' of one kind or another on a device is a no-go for whatever reason.

comment email (Exchange) issues due to lack of RDNS
Joe has a point. If my business ISP shrugged when I asked about DNS I would assume they were either joking or simply didn't actually want my business. It's a lot like starting a taxi company with cabs, drivers... And no means of working out fares.

comment ISA as reverse proxy for multiple SharePoint servers
ISA server? You realise that the newest version of that is about 9 years old and rather unsupported right? While ISA 2006 and Sharepoint 2010 is a supported scenario (benjaminathawes.com/2010/08/22/…) I really think you'll struggle to find good help with this and should be looking to upgrade ISA to Forefront (also doomed, but supported a bit longer at least) or find a new site publishing method entirely (celestix?)

comment When my Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials is down, clients can't go on the internet. Is there a way that they could?
The question at this point is why can they not go on the internet? What happens when they try? Is it just DNS that's failing, for example, or are you actually running a proxy on the server or anything like that?

comment Give console access to non-admin user in SCVMM 2012 R2
I would suggest that rather than trying to get SCVMM to jump through hoops it isn't comfortable jumping through, the best way to do this might be RDP for a Windows server or SSH for a Linux server.
