Member servers are those servers in your Active Directory environment that don’t provide authentication for domain user accounts. This task is left to the domain controllers. Even though member servers don’t provide authentication for domain users, they still provide essential functions for your company. When it comes down to it, member servers provide the backbone of services, applications, file storage, and more for your company.With member servers driving and containing such important information and data, it is no wonder that these servers should be at the top of the list when it comes to protecting computers on the network. There are of course obvious security measures that you can take, such as locking the servers in an isolated room and then within a locked cage within the room. However, there are logical configurations that you can also make to help protect these servers. Here, we will expose those areas and discuss the best ways to accomplish securing your member servers.
