How to verify active directory is functioning correctly
Posted on 2012-08-17
One of my customers, who has a small network of 80 users at one site lost power for almost 12 hours (this happened overnight).
The customer has two Domain Controllers, each with a copy of the Global catalogue and a distribution of the FSMO roles amongst themselves. These are windows 2003 standard server edition with SP2.
Since the with two Domain were off for quite a while, I would like to verify that after bringing the m up that AD is functioning correctly.
Initially I brought them on-line and there were some errors, but a reboot of both servers seemed to fix most of the problem.
The only error I seem to be encountering is that some of the computer accounts need to be reset (net logon errors in the event viewer).
Can someone suggest some steps to perform to ensure that AD is indeed running correctly?
Thanks in advance!
