We are in the process of merging two separate infrastructures / networks / IT Staffs.
After reviewing basic server specs we noticed both networks are inconsistent in the manner in which they deploy Windows servers. I would like to start by standardizing storage alerts/warnings so systems administration / management of servers is consistent across both environments.
Are there any best practices or recommendations for storage/capacity alerts based on server type? Basically I am looking for a starting point so we can begin to tweak the alerts for our environment(s).
Ex. File Server Disk Usage exceeds 85%
Ex. Domain Controller Disk Usage exceeds 95%
Example Server Types:
File Server (Shares)
File Server (Profiles)
Exchange Client Access / Hub Transport
Exchange Mailbox Database
Citrix XenApp Servers
Application Server (Document Management)
