just got myself a new job.. the only problem is I have now idea what I am doing smile.gif
They hired me based on my PR skills.. they needed a technical person with people skills.. so here I am. Problem is I have no experience in working with servers. Here is the basic set up. It is working with a school system- training labs, laptops, and desktops. They are using Novell Zen Works.. if anyone can provide me with some basic info on this.. or links I would be forever grateful!

Right, Novell Zen Works is REALLY easy to use...

What you do, is you make sure everything is BACKED UP...

ok?

Then,

quite simply,

you get a VERY VERY BIG sledgehammer and kill it,

Then install something with some skillz like FreeBSD or Windows, or even Linux!!!

Kk? Enjoy smile.gif

The question should really be, why do you need to know about the server? surely you've no need to touch it, you only need use it from a client end.

Tell me in which aspect you need to know about the software smile.gif

from what I can tell it will just be from the software end.
My position is going to be mainly hardware, the actual PC side of it.. I guess I will be trouble shooting connection issues, pulling images off the server if I have to re-image a machine.. but most of my server work (from what I have been told) will be to basically to know enough to do basic trouble shooting and to be the eyes of the server gods. My job is basically keeping up 100+ machines and there server connectivity.

Shouldn't be too bad if it's all set up right.

If a network is done correctly, you shouldn't have any server-related connection troubles.

Usually it'll be the parts between, ie switches, cables, the client's network card/software etc.

Server's should just sit in a corner, or a room, and just do their thing without any human intervention smile.gif
