I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Quite a broad question. You probably received a bunch of tools. You may want to be explicit in the test case that you will want to prioritise on as the test coverage is wide. See this long list of categories
Do note the penetration test is not about just running tools. The basis for penetration testing execution covers mainly:
-Pre-engagement Interactions
-Intelligence Gathering
-Threat Modeling
-Vulnerability Analysis
-Post Exploitation

Most common test case is to check for yhe server hygiene level e.g. Patch level of security update, any services running esp those of SMB service (file shares) port 137,139, 445, any remote access service such as 389 and any application based services such as webdav, web servers, sharepoint, directory services etc. These are avenues to penetrate through using poorly protected account (using simple or no passwords).
