Active Directory Knowledge Transfer Checklist

Hi,

We are transitioning a new client and I have been instructed to complete the Active directory KT Part.

DO any one have a Checklist Outlining the things i should cover up in the KT Session?

There's no recipe to do this, but there are a few things to consider.
You want your client to continue your work with full insight in changes to the default settings as well as passwords, etc.
Schema Changes/Extensions
Basic Configuration (AD/DNS/DHCP and other services)
Concepts used (File Server Access Rights, Naming schemes, etc.)
Passwords and Users used for Services or Administration (with the inclination, that the Client should change them once the transition is complete (for your safety)
Changes to the default configuration (Installed Hotfixes, Changed Settings...)(
Activated Roles, Features and Installed Services
Certification Authority (If deployed)
...and everything else the Client wants to know regarding the installation
I'm sure I missed something, but I hope other Experts here will continue my list :)

Good list above some other things I'd add

POCs for other teams (firewall admins, application teams, infrastructure team etc).  Sometimes you need to know who to call.

All build documents, naming convention docs, security,  and SOPs if you have them.

All numbers/contract numbers/support numbers for vendors and software...in case they need to open tickets.

I'd use AD toplogy diagrammer to give them a good drawing of the environment.

Do you use any third party tools with AD...full info on those tools.

Thanks

Mike

A good explanation of how you have their Group Policy Objects set up would also be tremendously helpful.
