comment Time Sync Offset on Domain Controllers and Hyper-V Hosts
I don't know the answer to that. I suspect we would need a Microsoft engineer or Hyper-V expert for that one.

comment iSCSI steps between 1Gb/s and 10Gb/s
When it comes to iSCSI Link Aggregation often isn't the right choice. What you may want instead is Multipath IO.

comment Time Sync Offset on Domain Controllers and Hyper-V Hosts
because they aren't syncing with themselves, or their internal clocks are better at keeping time. Anyway feel free to ignore my suggestion why the problem may be happening for you. But the best practice recommendations from Microsoft are quite clear. DCs should be configured to not use the Integration services for time sync.

comment Time Sync Offset on Domain Controllers and Hyper-V Hosts
Please stop calling things 'pdc, or bdc' They are all just domain controllers. There hasn't been a 'BDC' since nt4 days over 15 years ago.

comment How to combine multiple disks to act as one larger one?
What OS? On Linux I might be tempted to put them all in an LVM volume group. On Windows, maybe storage spaces.

comment Can't execute any command
That looks like failed storage of some sort. You may need to force a hardware reboot. Good luck, and hope you have backups.

afaik there is no such thing, but it would be interesting to be proven wrong.

comment SSH authentication based on existing OpenVPN tunnel
Both OpenVPN and SSH can use RSA keys. You can use the same private key for both. Generating the public SSH key, and the generating a cert for OpenVPN are different processes. Using the same for both is not trivial though. You are probably better off just keeping them separate.

comment Mounted with bind folder doesn't appear in FTP client if mounted a folder in a volume
Have you tried restarting the ftp daemon? It may open the directory when the daemon starts, and then just keep it open.

comment tcpdump increases udp performance
One thing that tcpdump does by default is put your network interface into promiscuous mode. You might want to pass the -p option to skip doing that to see if it makes a difference.

comment Create a security group that can promote a member server to domain controller without being in the domain admins group
This requirement is very unusual. I very much doubt you can add DCs without being a Domain Admin.

comment Place Date in Description when moved to different OU
Yes, that is possible. We are not going to write the script for you. You are going to need to spend some time doing putting the effort in yourself.

comment VPN Connection Failed When Using SSH
Since you changed the path for your connection, (started a vpn) you have changed the path for your connection (the old path doesn't work). Most likely your routes, network addressing, or something else changed in some way.

comment HP microserver gen8 - Win server 2012 r2 does not see the internal HD - asks for a driver
You almost certainly either need to extract that driver or download a different version of the packaging. A valid driver will be in a directory that includes an .inf file. BTW your comment about ESXi not having drivers issue is a bit odd, since the reason ESXi probably doesn't run is a lack of drivers for that hardware...
