Daily Exchange server maintenance tasks - The Big 5

A common question from students and clients is "What should I do to my Exchange server on a daily basis?" Here are my "big 5".

  1. Check for low disk space
  2. Check the queues
  3. Confirm that a successful nightly full backup has completed
  4. Update your antivirus signatures
  5. Scan the event logs for expected and unexpected errors

Other than that, leave Exchange alone. More Exchange servers have crashed from 'over administration' than you might think.

Keywords: Exchange 5.5, 2000, 2003, daily operations
