comment Get external public ip from command line in fortinet
take a look at execute in the docs to learn how to use nslookup. I had no idea about nslookup myip.opendns.com resolver1.opendns.com. That's great! Thanks.

Do you want to grab the IP address of an interface that has an IP assigned via PPPoE or DHCP?

comment How can I gain better insight into ISP-managed equipment (routers)?
What about monitoring on ingress and egress to the router (on both sides)? You can also just use basic traceroute, pathping, hping, and iperf to determine if they are sending packets inter-site consistently across the shorts paths.

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".
