Network Admin

Good-day,

I am wondering if there is any sort of standard practice regarding how many users in an organization a typical network admin could support on a Windows network.

i.e 1 Network admin per how many users (users meaning user accounts on the network)

I am specifically looking for a reference to this info.

Thanks for your time.

Not real clear on what you are getting at.  I am an administrator on a Windows 2000 network wth over 3500 accounts.  Are you looking for the number of staff needed to manage the network?

Please post, it may give more insight.

Here are some links one posting in a forum says that the rule of thumb for the number of IT "support staff" to the number of users assume that a network administrator counts as an IT support staff person

it says for smaller firms it is usually 1 for up to 50 users, for larger firms, it is usually 1 for every 150 users

here's the link --->  http://techrepublic.com.com/5208-6230-0.html?forumID=7&threadID=155910&messageID=1656281


Another site I found seems to belong to some sort of IT training company and they say as many as 200 users per 1
network administrator
