Build an Active Directory test lab.  Safely test your changes and ideas in a sandbox.

Creating a sandbox test lab for your Active Directory environment can be invaluable for safely evaluating validations, potential changes, new applications and process discoveries. A basic AD test lab which replicates user accounts and objects from your production environment can be built quite easily. If the lab must be a closer approximation of the actual production environment, then additional resources can be added such as name resolution services, remote access, client server applications and beyond. This sandbox allows you to ferret out catastrophic errors, failure or similar complications such as bugs in new operating system versions, patches or applications – without impacting the production AD infrastructure.

In this slideshow, Azaleos identifies tips focusing on Active Directory improvements. They have collected the following best practices from their network operations centers for making Active Directory run more smoothly in 2012. These tips cover a lot of ground, from consolidation down to smaller items, such as using the new recycle bin feature. Start small and tackle each of these items gradually. This will enable you to stay current with required fixes, while monitoring the health, performance and functionality of your AD enterprise for smooth sailing into the new year.
