comment Where does a Domain Controller's Local Security Policy come from?
I just tried gpresult, which produced the same result as the "Group Policy Results" feature in "group policy management". This particular local policy did not show up though. I have a feeling somehow the previous policy setting was copied to be the default during the DC promo process.

Thank you very much Ryan for your answer. It's very enlightening.

@EvanAnderson: The machine is actually a completely new install of WS12 R2. The problem is, as Ryan said, the group policy "tattooed" the local security policy. The group policy was applied to the "Domain Computers" group, which means it no longer apply to the DC after it was moved from the "Domain Computers" to the "Domain Controllers" group.

comment WSUS: How to combine targeting groups from multiple GPOs
Yes, I understand all this, but say I want to distinguish between 10 software suites, then there will be 2^10 = 1024 possible combinations of computer groups. I cannot possible create so many GPOs. I need a way to encode all these possibilities in one GPO.

comment Need a script/batch/program that runs a command that won't be killed when the parent is killed
I just tried this and I realized this is the one of the first things I tried and dismissed. The bat files are indeed not killed, but they bring two other problems: 1) they generate visible windows and 2) the start command will actually cause the parent to wait for the child batch files to finish before it exits. This will certainly make the whole thing exceed the 3-second timeout and cause Zabbix to raise and error and disable this metric.

See my comments regarding the at command. Using Scheduled Tasks require I define both the schedule and the exact command. As I may need to frequently change the parameters of the metrics (especially during network problems), I would need to log into every server and manually change the tasks. Group policy may take up to 1 hour to deploy, so that's not an option either.
