I am after some guidance on typical things to monitor in a corporate evironment consisting of Domain Controllers, DHCP, DNS, Proxy Servers, Domino Servers, File & Print Servers, Web Servers, SQL Servers, etc...  I appreciate that this is a very broad question but if there are any whitepapers you could provide or just guidance that would be great...  Thanks in advance..

    Just off the top of my head:
     * Server up & down status
     * Services
        > WINS
        > DNS
        > Netlogon

    And that's just the basics for ANY domain controller.
