Our 2008 AD network runs 200 Windows 7 machines and I’m wondering, which maintenance tasks are appropriate for these machines? Disk scan, defragment, etc.?
Maintenance tasks for a 2008 Domain
There are some points that you can work on to secure your Domain and can maintain your domain.
First thing is to keep a backup of all of your info that is of most importance and regularly do the same thing over a period of time.
The second thing is to maintain the accounts of the users that are on the domain.
Keep the active directory clean and only set the rights that are important for the users.
Only rely on the data which is safe and do not copy a data that contains some virus or infections.
Disk scan is also a major task in this case but a strong antivirus is most suitable for this purpose to maintain your server and domain.
keep looking for updates on your server if any update is required specially for the antivirus program you have installed.
These are some major things i can discuss here although there are other number of things that can be done in this regard but these are not so common.
