Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Thanks but I was looking more for a document template to provide a written plan rather than an implementation guide..I searched everywhere can't seem to find one.  Probably doesn't exist:-)

I can write you an outline, probably, which you can use to create doc template

Sorry, it's been pretty crazy around here:  Here's some help:

Current Environment:

Check on following:

Branding = Custom Templates? Custom CSS?
Run Analytics for usage and proper sizing of old environment and new environment
create your backup/restore strategy and your failover plan
run usage report on all sites to find active and orphaned sites: Go to users of orphaned sites to confirm delete (don't migrate junk)
do you use third party tools?
Do you have maintenance/support agreements for third party tools?
Inventory all sites to determine business critical apps
analyze functionality of business critical apps (how they work, where they connect, workflows, etc..)
check patch level of old environment
..from analytics, record busy / heavy load times
check all your webapplications and related content databases
do double backups
Notify management and users
Notify users again
confirm all services and jobs have run successfully (account imports etc..)
take a look through logs
follow best practices (links attached)

Check out the following:
