Fresh Server 2008 R2 install for our school. Advice please
After our 2003 Server died I am going to have a go at doing a complete fresh domain install using 2008 R2 before calling in our support.
I need to set it up as it was previously.
Can you spot anything that I am missing.
Server Create new domain
Install File server
Add workstations to domain
Add users to domain
Create shared drive and folders for users
Create logon script
Create Mandatory Profile for pupils
Create Backup Server
anything else ?? or am I taking on to much

Installing the RSAT tools should be ample for managing your AD environment
Using a Key Management Server?
Update firewall rules? (if they relied on old server name\IP's)
Were you using WINS in your old setup? are you confident nothing now relies on this?
If you have the budget, I would create a 2nd DC for resiliency (not essential, but good practice).
Are you going to be solely responsible for managing the AD? if not I would make sure you protect your objects from acidental deletion
Or if you're fully 2008 enable the AD recycle bin :-D
