We use the Essentials Experience Role of Windows Server 2016 Standard in a domain where there are 2 AD controllers and a healthy DHCP server that serves both AD's IP to DHCP clients. This is a typical small scale AD redundant setup. The DHCP server is on the machine holding the FSMO rights and the Essentials Experience role is located on the second AD controller. This is NOT redundant but that is the way it is.
We were unaware of the SkipAutoDNSServerDetection regisry setting until I recently had o fix a condition where servers were losing their DNS settings, including the AD servers (!).
During the last year, we also had to create the SkipDomainJoin registry setting whenever reinstalling the WSE Client Connector after a Windows 10 major release update.
Is there a documented GPO where I could set these (and other unknown beauties) and forget about them?
Is there any interest for such a GPO (in case I am a lone dinosaur still using the 2016 Essentials Experience Role) ?
