Ensuring High Availability for Active Directory

Active Directory is command central for most enterprises today.  It is responsible for authentication, security, distribution of network resource information, policy implementation, messaging, and much more.  As a result, if Active Directory fails, the business suffers.  Employees are unable to perform their jos, transactions get lost, and customers may be unable to run applications, resulting in loss of sales.

This paper identifies a number of symptoms that can indicate problems with Active Directory, explains a variety of measures you can take to help ensure its health, and compares several native and third-party recovery options for restoring deleted objects.
