This is my first job as a network/system administrator in an real environment.
The actual Admin has just given me the root password and explained me about the network infrastructure. He will quit soon.
Please, give me some tips ! Where do I start from? What must be my first steps? What are most important first things I must do as the new admin? What are the most important things that I have to have clear in my mind ?
I have the opportunity to study the network and the servers for a few days and then we (I and the admin) meet again to clarify what I didn't get clear in my mind. I after that I am on my own. I don't want to miss something and to get later into troubles. Every important aspect must be clear after we meet again.
I can't say that I am new to linux, but I've just used it at Home for my personal needs not as job in a read company. I have good knowledge about networking and OS (linux), but not so much experience.
Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
