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.
