Troubleshooting a problem which might have diverse effects on the entire company
Posted on 2008-02-01
Hi guys. I would like to seek advise from all of you gurus here.
When troubleshooting a problem regardless of AD, DNS, DHCP or other related problems.
How do you ensure that when you change a setting here or there that it would not affect the entire business operation. E.g like AD replication, DNS changes.
I am a fresh MCSE and I know that its an entire level when dealing with servers rather than client workstations.
One wrong move and it could cripple the entire business operation.
Questions that I would like to ask
1. What methodology or ways do you prevent or rather minimise the impace of what you do to the server.
2. Which impact the most? AD? DNS?
3. What to take note off.
4. and if it really happens, how do you rectify the problem ASAP.
More advise possible if you could let me know more about it.
Your advise is very important to me.
