comment What are the implications of not having explicit static private IP for Windows Server 2012?
To clarify: you recommend leave everything at Windows OS level as-is ("Obtain an IP address automatically" and "Obtain DNS server automatically"), correct?

Yeah, I intended to change default ports. As far as VPN - obviously there is no hardware VPN router on Amazon side. I am not sure I want to host Windows VPN services on the same box where our application is hosted (or if Windows VPN services can even be hosted outside of domain environment).

I just tried on Windows XP Pro (don't want to mess with the server): created new user, removed membership in "Users" group (so yes, you can log on locally while not being a member of any local group). Successfully logged on locally as this user. Logged off. Checked user properties - it is still not a member of "Users" group.

comment What is a difference between a member of “Users” group and not a member of any group on Windows?
I don't have access to domain environment right now, just to non-domain Windows Server 2008 R2. Newly created users are members of local group "Users" (that I guess would be similar to "Domain Users" in domain environment) but I can remove membership in this group from them. Members of local "Users" group can, for instance, log on locally to the computer and run applications. What if the membership in local "Users" group is revoked? Would they still be able to log on locally?

comment Hostname vs IP address to refer to servers in Windows domain environment
So is setting DisableStrictNameChecming to 1 a recommended setting? The problem I see with this is that one needs to reboot file (or SQL) server which is never desirable. I would prefer something done, say, on Domain Controller that also wouldn't require a restart.

comment Hostname vs IP address to refer to servers in Windows domain environment
Oh, I see. So what you are saying is that re-assigning IP is still recommended way to go in conjunction with using using the same host name ans changing that DisableStrictNameChecking registry key? Did I get this right? And the reason it fails with default settings is because MAC address didn't match?

We are using DNS. That is it is implemented on domain controller. I can't explain why other people still use IP addresses instead of host name.

Do you mind pointing out for me where on Domain Controller one would create new DNS entry? Is there just one way to do this or multiple? Thanks.
