    Hello everybody,

    can you give me a pointer to a complete best-practice checlist for a Domain
    Controller setup?

    I've browsed a couple, but I am not fully satisfied with that.
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/216899
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/822158

    Probably there are some "hints from the field" that are not mentioned at
    Microsoft's.

    Thanks in advance.

    Regards,
    Gabriele.

  3. It would be rather difficult for anybody (imho) to make comments on stuff
    outside these KB articles, since these articles were built for a broad range
    of users w/o specifics for any one company. Things can be tweaked but w/o a
    whole lot of understanding on multiple factors it is difficult to provide
    any details.

    I would start with these and if you have any particular areas of concern,
    such as security, reliability, etc... Then you should provide details on
    what you are looking for.

    As a DC is a critical piece of infrastructure in a Windows environment, it
    must be reliable, available and secure.

    Besides KB216899 and KB822158 I mentioned, I found other related articles
    such as:
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/555381/en-us
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/306602/en-us
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/200498/en-us
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/241515/en-us

    So many scatterded informations, I was wondering if anyone had the idea to
    consolidate best-practices in a single document/website enriched with some
    "notes from the fied".

    Another nice reading:
