HI,
I would like to know the steps involved and how to secure three Windows 2008 Enterprise edition servers. the first server is the Domain Controller and Database Server. It runs DHCP and DNS and SQL Server 2008 RC2.
The Second and third servers are web servers that are clustered running Apache TomCat.

What I would like to know is what step by step guide would you recommend to secure all three servers.
Thanks
Any help is appreciated.
