Active Directory Regular Checks
Posted on 2007-11-28
Good morning experts :)
I work for a huge multi-national corporation with approx 3000 AD Servers. I am in a team of 4 that look after them :)
I have been tasked with providing a series of checks that we can perform in the morning when the first member of staff comes in... just to make sure everything is ticking over nicely. These checks are only for approx 300 servers tho.
The actual delivery mechanism isn't the issue at the moment (like using vbscripts or a web page etc), I just need a list of things that we should be checking.
As for how we go about checking things... that is something I will worry about later.
Some things to check off the top of my head would be:
Replication (maybe replmon, replview etc)
Database integrity (ntdsutil?)
Thats the kind of thing I mean.
Now, the list of checks could be huge... that won't be an issue as long as I can automate it but at this stage it's a brain dump from all you experts out there.
Thanks in advance :)
