  • 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?

    Lot of work there!

    I wouldn't run both SBS and Exchange BPA since the SBS essentially includes the Exchange and is in fact based on it. Windows Update is a given and usually handled by WSUS. The HP drivers helps - the rest is performance, not Health.
