This depends on several factors:
What OS and version is it?
How many servers total?
What is the function of this server?


These are things you need to ask yourself then map out a maintenance plan. You have to consider auditing, software updates, hardware updates, when to perform those type of tasks, disk defrag, disk cleanups, etc.

Here is a link to hopefully get you in the right direction but in the end it  is going to have to be up to you on what, when, and how you implement your schedule.
