I have inhereted responsibility for a sizeable network.  I would really appreciate feedback regarding server maintenance planning.


How much daily/weekly/monthly SysAdmin time will I need to maintain the average:

1) W2K3 Server Role = DC
2) W2K Server Role = DC
3) Exchange 2000/2003 Server
4) SQL Server 2000
5) A typical W2K3-based App. server with a 3rd party app.
6) A Linux Server


How about for PCs?  How much time for PC maintenance?  XP and 98.  What would this entail?  What level of skills should I hire?

Is the time for server maintenance and PC maintenance linear, or are there economies of scale?

Thank you very much!
