    This is to do with how Apple Macs do their network boot (similar to PXE boot for PC), they use the vendor extensions in DHCP to implement a protocol they call BSDP - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boot_Service_Discovery_Protocol - I *think* if DHCP server just sends down options 66 and 67 the OS X firmware just boots from it

    It is possible to kludge a Linux DHCP server deal with it - https://docs.math.osu.edu/linux/how-tos/bsdp_with_isc_dhcp but I don't think it is possible with windows. I always thought it might be possible to use DHCP Policies in Windows DHCP 2012+ but I have never managed to test it out

    Yep - SilverSeekKB seems to be broken for me now too :( I was looking for the latest hotfixes for the ADFS role, fortunately managed to find them on technet

    One semi-official tool you can use is SilverSeekKB - http://silverseekkb.cloudapp.net/

    I agree these would be nice to see in the OS

    FYI there is an ability for 3rd parties to develop their own password policies through the password filter functionality - https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/ms721882(v=vs.85).aspx

    Doubt we will see any Microsoft agents bundled in with the OS - I give it about 10 minutes t for the competition to start working on a lawsuit for un-competitive behavior ;)

    There appears to be a layer 4 load balancer as part of the SDN features in the latest technical preview - https://technet.microsoft.com/en-US/library/dn890699.aspx

    No clear documentation on how/if it's possible to configure stand alone without the network controller

    Unfortunately Microsoft deprecated SNMP in server 2012 so we are unlikely to see any major changes to it in the future -
