Document your servers, switches, router & network information including IP addresses, settings, usernames and passwords.

Review the information with staff to verify all is correct.

Install a industry standard backup application that backs up all servers in a nightly or regular schedule so you can recover from any incident or catastrophy.

Document what is updated and when and how to perform a recovery.

Perform a test recovery to make sure you know what to do and that your plan is accurate.

Make sure backups or a copy of the backups are stored off site in a secure locate
Make sure onsite backups are stored securely.

Make sure all desktops and servers have secure passwords. Create a list of all user names and passwords. Store it is a secure location.

Make sure only appropriate individuals know the administrative password(s) to the system.

Make sure you have anti virus installed on all systems and it's up to date.

That is a good start!

Thanks for the steps, this is all about DR site but how we can restore our DC if AD database corrupted before setting up DR site.

Current Scenario: 1 PDC & 2 ADC within site only with DNS & GC.

Restore from a backup.  If you planned ahead, there would be one.
