New server checklist

I am setting up a new terminal server (remote desktop) that will also house the data for our agency.  It will run windows 2003 standard.  

Does anyone have a good checklist of thing I need to do before making it live?  I have already made it a DC and added AD.

Thanks,

JCHD

you already added AD....did you promote as an additional DC in an exsiting domain or a new domain altogether? do you have a domain in existance already?

most important is patched and virus protected, thats about it

For Application use, install Terminal Services in Application mode - you will also need to get TS CALs for it for all the users that will connect for NON-Administrative functions (such as running your application).

This site is pretty comprehensive:

Check and Check.

I have added it as an additional DC, and AD is replicating just fine.

I have installed Terminal Services and and I have puchaced and installed CALs for it.

Now the major step...  Transferring all the data over.  Does anyone have a good idea on how to do this?  

I need to make sure all the folder permissions transfer over.  I would also like the clients to be able to use the same shortcuts.  I need a way to  "foward" the shortcut locations on the clients to the new server.

Thank you VERY MUCH!

you can use Robocopy from the resource kit to copy data in bulk and retain permissions...or you can backup the data with ntbackup and restore which will maintain permissions...as far as accessing by the same name, i will leave that to NM as i am not sure

It can be done using an Alias record, but it's not very clean.  Best to delete and recreate them using a script.
