comment Windows DNS clients can't update PTR records, but can update A records (not ACLs)
Either way/both ways should not be a problem. I should be able to use the DHCP server(s) and the clients to modify and register A and PTR records, and this is what I am intending to do. The problem is with the PTR records only. Note that the network is architected so that not all DHCP is managed by our Windows DHCP servers (yes, I prefer to not have this be the case, but it is). So, with this in mind, the clients, of which there are ACEs on the A and PTR records, should be able to update their records as well as the [Windows] DHCP server(s).

comment checking for missing values in WQL or (WQL/WMI filter to return `true` for desktops/servers, but `false` on laptops)
I am applying a power plan, and 34 registry keys (disabling hibernation, setting NICs to not power off to save energy), and had a lot of fun clicking between 400 and 1000 times setting this up [but, hey, it's only done once]. I used a Collection returning false, testing for all three docked conditions, OR select caption from win32_portablebattery where caption like "%ortable%" from Root\cimv2 returns a value for caption (property).

Sorry for the confusion, I fit into "camp 6"; a righteous, consuming, chaotic rebel, who takes from the nothing and gives fake internet points to the poor. Upvotes all around.

Change that to an answer. That sounds like a great idea, not a direct answer; but I'll mark it anyway, because I fall into "camp 5".

Thanks. This is probably reasonable, except that in some years, we might be using some desktop model that supports SODIMM (like a HP 8300 ELITE USDT). This was referred to in the technet thread referenced earlier. I know without a doubt that win32_portablebattery will be 100% reliable; but if I can't locate any way to use it, then I'll use this. I guess I could just pull a report to see how viable it is.

comment Initial Deployment-MDT+WDS
Let me know how it goes. In regards to your comment: How are you installing the application? Streamlined into the a task sequence (which first installs the OS, then installs the app)? I don't really understand what you're saying (which is basically "I'm installing an app on a non-existing OS"). Have you isolated task sequences for app installs only? You can check if an OS exists and fail if it doesn't.

comment Rx Error in NIC logs
I mean nothing. If you are observing an error, you have to fully understand what you are observing. So, I tried to define what RX-ERR actually means (it's really very vague). You've got to make sure you understand what you are using to diagnose an error. That post I linked to should give you some guidance on generally troubleshooting the error. I'm not sure if dup ACKs would increment this counter. Do you see a direct correlation?
