questions that are related to servers/ADs/DCs belong on Server Fault
Uh, no. Not always. Just those used in a professional environment.
E.g. I got a Dell poweredge R300. A nice 1U high 19 inch server with a Xeon CPU, full DRAC etc etc. It is a home playbox and thus is excluded by "and it is not about…" "Anything in a home or development environment"
Vice versa a iPod (either from apple or what the public identifies as a google based Ipad (android tablet) can very much be topic for [SF] when it is used in a coorporate setting.
So I would focus less on the devices and more on their context.
The same is true for Active Directory (AD)'s, Domain controllers, plain end user hardware (the desktops which you manage as admin) etc. etc.
Or slightly less concrete:
- When on [SF] I assume that there are backups. And they those are tested. And that there is spare hardware or that new hardware can be replaced rapidly (E.g. due to 4h support contracts). I also assume time is a factor. Playing around for a day or two to get a setup working is not worth it if you can just toss a single new desktop at it.
- When on [SU] or other sites this is usually the reverse. Time is cheap. Deadlines are often personal ones. Getting a old system working might not be economical but it might be fun (e.g. installing win98 on a P1 is fun, but insane for corporate environments). Or running XP is an option.
as to the "why is that I must hide the fact my question is one that I have as a technician?".
You do not need to hide it. If you, as a technician, have a problem in a professional context and you have taking the steps any professional would have then there is quite a good change that your question is valid on [SF].
