  1. Use some of the troubleshooting tools outlined in this chapter on your functioning network. A good one to play with is NBTSTAT. Compare its output to the outputs listed in this hour. Are the types consistent with what you would expect? Try srvinfo on several of your servers. Are they patched to the same levels? Do they have as much free space as you would like?

  2. The time to experiment with recovery tools is now, not when an emergency arises. Plan a fire drill, and either write out what you would do, or actually do what you think you might have to do if your server became inaccessible (this is probably preferable) to another, non-production server.
