Become a great Windows Admin

You need to have a firm plan on the following subjects:

1. backups

2. firewall

3. antivirus

4. patch management

5. user management

6. cloning software or altiris style deployment

7. printer management

8. servers –

vms, clustering, redundancy, traffic rules, network failover,

9. UPS and surge suppression

Traffic rules – Block all unnecessary traffic to your windows servers using IPsec. Wouldn’t you rather have access allowed to 200 machines via 12 ports vs all computers on the internet on all ports? lock it down

Appearances are everything – Here are the things that buy you brownie points quick but have good uses and develop good habits. Turn these on right away.
