Active Directory audit

I am heading into a new contact where I need to do a complete audit of Active Directory. Before I begin to make my laundry list of tasks, I wanted to see if you might have an existing AD audit project (*.mpp) or laundry list of things to check.

I appreciate your time!

Jay Jay!

great thread...the search I made didn't surface it when I looked. I am glad you shared. Most of the items I have and a few I have which weren't mentioned such as AD Sites organizaed to represent the physcal business sites and OUs represent discrete business units, security groups and DLs require 5+ members and are created with a logical scheme. I also am looking for a consistent naming scheme for OUs, GPOs, users, systems, printers, AD-integrated DBs, etc.

Lotsa stuff to find!

Thanks again!
Its good hey, you should see the doco that i wrote after getting that response, it is an absolute monster for server auditing especically when auditing someone elses work   hehe !
