Before you check performance, availability, and functionality of your Microsoft Exchange organization, you should check the physical environment. For example, the server room temperature might need to be lowered or a network cable might need to be replaced. Perform the following physical environmental inspections:
- Physical security measures Physical
security protection such as locks, doors, and restricted-access
rooms must be secured. Check for any unauthorized and forced
entries and signs of equipment damage.
- Temperature and humidity High
temperature and humidity can cause hardware components to overheat.
Check temperature and humidity to help make sure that the
environmental systems such as heating and air conditioning can
maintain acceptable conditions and function within the hardware
- Devices and components Your Exchange
organization relies on a functioning physical network and related
hardware. Check to make sure that routers, switches, hubs, physical
cables, and connectors are operational.
