It would be nice to have a Compliance or evaluation tool to baseline server configurations. If you take the NCM compliance and apply it to the server realm that would be a start.
Just like in the networking world you have to check to see if the configurations are similar, different or if it has basic settings need to function correctly like the right time zone, DNS settings, firewall rules (Non Domain), registry keys, and or files.
