    The secret to clustering involves keeping systems identical. Use only the same hardware (physical or virtual). If you make any changes to configuration settings on one, do the other members of the cluster at the same time, and keep the patching identical on all cluster members. Anything on one that is not exactly the same as the other(s) can make the difference between a cluster that works flawlessly and one that you spend far too much time troubleshooting.

A SysAdmin has an almost endless list of tasks they must complete on a regular basis. Some are so routine that they can be done while multitasking, others require careful attention to detail and a laser-like focus to ensure that things are done well and completely. While many admins may look at most of the tasks on this list as run of the mill, they frequently present a challenge to others. In this slideshow, Christina Goggi, writing for GFI Software, provides some tips on how to approach them.
