Weekly Maintenance Procedures?

By luv2bike2 ·
I am looking for a good checklist for LAN/WAN maintenance. Does anyone have one or know of where I can find one? What do you do to maintain your network? Besides backing up the servers and users systems what else do you do? I know that you have to keep up with SP's, virus software DAT files, but what else?
Any help is appreciated!!!!

Weekly Maintenance Procedures?

by Admin-Stuart In reply to Weekly Maintenance Proced ...

If your servers are optimized to run their respective applications at their best, and you aren't experiencing any connectivity problems that point to hardware, then it seems to me that most of the "maintenance" of the network is going to be related to the specific applications that you run (email, webserver,database,firewall, etc.), and the type of network operating system you have (NT, Win2K, NetWare, Unix, etc).

More detail about these areas would help our suggestions to be more meaningful and focused.

I run defrag on the servers once/month. Also, check event logs regularly; monitor disk free space weekly, check bandwidth usage periodically, check the mail logs, firewall logs; check resources on servers periodically to see if server is stressed, tidy up users/groups if they need it; reboot nt servers once/month.

i'm sure there are more things -- hope this helps.
