After a successful implementation, we must follow up with monitoring and manage our infrastructure.  This phase of the life cycle is just as important as the implementation.  We must keep our environment stable, secure, and performing up to expectations.  We will describe how to accomplish this by discussing the following:

  • Plan server management strategies:  remote administration, remote desktop, server management technologies, Server Manager and ServerManagerCMD, delegation policies and procedures
  • Plan for delegated administration: delegate authority, delegate Active Directory objects, application management
  • Plan and implement group policy strategy: GPO management, GPO backup and  recovery, group policy troubleshooting, group policy planning
  • Implement patch management strategy: operating system patch level maintenance, Windows Server Update Services (WSUS), application patch level maintenance
  • Monitor servers for performance evaluation and optimization: server and service monitoring, optimization, event management, trending and baseline analysis
  • Monitor and maintain security and policies: remote access, monitor and maintain NPAS, network access, server security, firewall rules and policies, authentication and authorization, data security, auditing
