Hello, the following support tools used via script and scheduled task will be a good starter in give you mots important informations: dcdiag /v /c /d /e /s:dcname >c:\dcdiag.txt netdiag /v >c:\netdiag.txt [from each DC, netdiag may work but isn't supported with Windows server 2008 and don't run on Windows server 2008 R2] repadmin /showrepl dc* /verbose /all /intersite >c:\repl.txt ["dc* is a place holder for the starting name of the DCs if they all begin the same (if more then one DC exists)] dnslint /ad /s "DCipaddress" (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/321045) Also the /e in dcdiag scans the complete forest, so better run/schedule it on COB.Best regards Meinolf Weber Disclaimer: This posting is provided "AS IS" with no warranties or guarantees , and confers no rights.

I know you asked for a check list, but if you need to monitor in real time use an application like Microsoft SCOM and the AD Management pack. You can configure it to alert you when there is a problem. Roy Mayo, MCSE | Richmond, VA USA

Hello, i already did. The support tools above will gave you the important information about the DCs, Domain, replication and DNS. This must be healthy and you have done your dailey check for the DC/Domain.Best regards Meinolf Weber Disclaimer: This posting is provided "AS IS" with no warranties or guarantees , and confers no rights.
