comment Windows Active Directory naming best practices?
What about e-mail? If the domain is ad.company.com, all domain users will automatically get addresses like login@ad.company.com.

If this is indeed so, then this topic deserves a coverage. Especially since the question is about "common configurations". From my experience, the only problem is syncing with public DNS. But that's more like a software shortcoming - algorithmically, there's no rocket science here.

"To defeat your enemy, you must know your enemy." - this is asking for a Sun Tzu citation! "It is said that if you know your enemies and know yourself, you will not be imperiled in a hundred battles; if you do not know your enemies but do know yourself, you will win one and lose one; if you do not know your enemies nor yourself, you will be imperiled in every single battle."

I'd replace ad.example.com with just example.com. The former confuses a reader (read: me) to believe it's an autogenerated name as well as _msdtc (I skipped to the AD section because I already know DNS proper). I've yet to see a network that uses a DNS subdomain specifically for the AD stuff.

comment Equivalent of LogRotate for Windows?
Any perspective for sources? To, say, recompile it for the installed Cygwin rather than haul a separate one around?

I confirm the ability to move the log file of Cygwin's stock syslog-ng.

comment Remote desktop certificate error - how to connect anyways?
Or an XP, for that purpose. It doesn't check the certificate's revocation either.

comment traceroute TCP equivalent for Windows
A sniffer should tell you what's happening. My guess is that some intermediate router/gateway tries to be a smart-aleck and handles the packets in an unusual way.

comment Python upgrade to 2.7.2 from 2.4.x leads to yum module missing
I used to alter python SRPM from Fedora for this sake, replacing all references to "python" with "python<version>" (it was python25 in my case) so there'd be no intersecting files/provisions/requirements.
