    SBS 2003 Health Check


    Hi All,

    I have to run a health check on a client SBS 2003 server.

    I have included following checks to run on server:



    * Run Microsoft best practices analyzer for sbs 2003 on server



    * Run Microsoft best practices analyzer for exchange 2003



    * Run Microsoft server performance tool on server



    * Check installed memory and available memory



    * Check total disk space and free diskspace



    * Read performance counters



    * Check anti virus performance and updates



    * Check windows updates



    * Check HP drivers and firmware version …its an HP proliant server



    * Check penetration testing for network related issues



    Is there anything else that any one can suggest to add in the list? or a
    better way of doing it?



    Thanks.

    That is a pretty good list... you left out reviewing the event logs and the
    performance and usage reports. Because of that, and the nature of your question
    and list, can i assume you are more comfortable with standard servers than
    SBS? if so, get a book or two on the subject and use it as a reference if
    not read from cover to cover.

    Recommended Books:

    Windows Small Business Server 2008 Administrator's Companion

    http://www.amazon.com/Windows%C2%AE-...1297332&sr=1-3

    And OR

    Windows Small Business Server 2008 Unleashed

    http://www.amazon.com/Windows-Small-...7269967&sr=8-1


    If this is just a general routine exam, not prompted by any symptoms, then
    I don't know what other advice to offer. If there are symptoms that you
    are looking for a cause, let us know what those are.

    Not sure if this one overlaps the SBS BPA, or by how much, but it's another
    one to consider. I would absolutely do this one if there's another domain
    controller in addition to the SBS.
