comment Group POlicy and Default Printer by Computer
Have you looked at using a loopback policy in merge mode perhaps? This will apply user settings from the Computer OU.

It also has nothing to do with HTTP host headers.

comment Redirecting to game ports based on subdomain?
The issue described in that link has nothing to do with redirecting things to a different port.

comment Use UNIX users and file permissions based authentication for Apache WebDAV?
I don't think you can. Or at least I haven't found it. You can authenticate with the system accounts using a few different methods, but I don't think it can handle the filesystem permissions.

comment How to run .exe file on many computers on the network at same time?
There are so many ways to do what you are asking.... Psexec, Powershell Remoting, etc. I kinda worry that you haven't spend enough time actually doing your homework here. I thought about scheduled task but - You can create scheduled tasks with a Group Policy.

Then run an SSH agent on your local machine, and forward the agent.

Why key agent on the server? It should be on your local client that you are connecting from.

comment Why does a DHCP server need a static IP address?
Well a single DHCP server can have many scopes. So you could configure scopes for both those subnets on a single server. A DHCP server can only respond to broadcast requests with scopes that are associated with the local subnet. It determines this by looking at the assigned local addresses. As a safeguard most DHCP servers require this to be static. What would happen to your network in your example, if your DHCP server happened to get a DHCP address from a rogue DHCP server?

comment Nagios Basic Configuration (for quick addition of new machines)
The important thing to realize about nagios is the templating, and service/host groups can and will make configuration a lot easier. So you setup commands, and services and assign them to a host group. Then you simply set your host to be a member of that group possibly in the template for your host.

comment Nagios Basic Configuration (for quick addition of new machines)
Could your nagios server access all the remote systems via SSH? Do you have any concerns about setting letting the nagios server connect to all the other via SSH? You can make your client somewhat easier by using the check_by_ssh plugin instead of nrpe.

comment Linux centric backup solution for NTFS target
Do you actually need to be able to read the backups when mounting this under Windows? I get that you don't want to change the NTFS format for some reason, but have you thought about simply creating a virtual filesystem on the NTFS volume? Then using that virtual filesystem as your target for backups? That way you can format it as ext4 or something else that you can use standard tools with.

comment How can I remove specific events from the event log in Windows Server 2008?
@Pa Did you read the accepted answer? Because I don't want a person to be able to easily cover their tracks of doing bad things by selectively deleting the log entries. Logs should generally be write-once, and read-only from a security perspective.

comment Need assistance Creating special Batch file
Stop using batch files. Use Powershell. This is an opportunity to learn powershell. This script should be trivial in powershell, and I bet you could find tons of examples on how to do this in powershell via a Google search.
