I think they backup local SharePoint servers not those direct on Office 365?

Installing FS on a DC
We're looking to replace a server for a client and deciding whether to put the DC and FS on a single VM (which is what they have had for the last 6 years). I've always been in favour for splitting the two but wanted to know your thoughts.
The new server spec: Xeon 2620 2.10Ghz - 24GB Ram
They have 15 users (with roaming profiles).
Can you let me know if adding the two together are a big no-no or what the reasons are for not doing this. I understand converting a VM to a DC has a slight effect on write cache so could affect performance but in practice is this a huge downside? Trying to weigh up differences, pro's and con's
Giving out admin details
Q: what would you do?
We have a client who want to install software (a number of them) for testing on a computer but cant because they dont know the admin password which we need to make changes. (UAC)
I have explained we dont give this out as policy due to security vulnerabilities and of course to prevent users making changes we dont necessarily want them to etc. We advised that we would happily install any apps they want if they give us the list and we'd roll them out.
Then then came back to say they understand but can we not create another local admin user for them to use....
Now - this is besides the point and makes no sense as allows them to do something we dont want to do!
What would you do?
Powershell on Startup + Azure Storage
So I have a client using Azure File storage. In short, they have a mapped drive (S:) which is a mapped to a small Azure file storage repository.
Annoyingly when the computer is rebooted (sometimes) or goes to sleep, when they log in, the S drive has disappeared (despite persist in the script). Can anyone let me know either a) how to keep the mapped drive there always and forever, or b) how to set the powershell script to run on login automatically (as an admin). If you need any more details, please let me know. thanks, J
