Twenty Tricky SysAdmin Tasks… And How to Approach Them

  • Twenty Tricky SysAdmin Tasks… And How to Approach Them-

    Repetitive tasks should be scripted as much as possible, both to save time and to eventually automate as many of these as you can. Start a text file or a OneNote notebook now, and save any and all command line tidbits you either create on your own or find online, to build up your own repository of “scriptlets.” Share these with other admins on your team; if you have enough and you have the infrastructure, consider saving them to an internal wiki or SharePoint site. The more you use (and reuse) these, the quicker you will find your scripting skills growing.

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.
