IT New Year's Resolution: Check list for success

It is the new year and now that the confetti has settled it is time to do all those annual chores no body enjoys. IT is no different. There are tasks, often ignored, or put off for another day, which it is time to deal with.


  • Check your domain registration:
    • Can you access the domain registration account?
    • What is the expiration date?
    • Is the contact information up-to-date and correct?

  • Make a list of server names, IP addresses and passwords (keep it in a safe and memorable place)

  • Document server and software configurations

  • Record settings for switches, routers, firewalls and wireless networks

  • A large or complex network configuration would benefit from a network map

  • Review account access privileges for employees and make sure they are current

  • Review the web site content make sure it is current, purge unused/duplicated files

  • Document any special procedures and network exceptions (e.g. a computer is not connected to the network because &)

  • Lastly, and this should perhaps be a weekly task, make sure your anti-virus software is up to date and you have current backup files for your computers.

Much of this information is needed if something happens to your resident IT specialist, so stop procrastinating and start the new year up-to-date and ready to go.
