    We run an ArcGIS Server site for Production, and a TEST site that is a mirror of Production.

    When you log into Manager, it is very easy to think you are on the TEST site, when in fact you are in Production, and delete or shut down a service.

    The solution we came up with was simple.  We edited the admin.css and added a background image.  TEST is now Orange and says TEST, Production is red and says PROD.  We have not made that mistake since making the change.

    Therefore, the idea would be to make the web page for ArcGIS Server Manager configurable, where you can easily alter the background color or image.
