I have been tasked with creating a runbook for our Active Directory environment.  I'm unsure as to what information I would put into it.  Does anyone have any suggestions on what to include?

Thanks in advance,

Tina

Operationally, I would target the following:

Group Policy Creation & Assignment
AD Replication
User & Group Object Provisioning/De-Provisioning / Attribute Management
FSMO Management
DNS Management (Creating Static Records, New Zones, etc.)
Performance Monitoring
Sites and Services Management (i.e. New Sites, Subnets Creation)
Backup and Recovery of Forest, Domain, OU and Individual Objects
Delegation of Control
