Hello Again,

I am freshly out of school and I have landed my very first position as a Network Admin. I am scared as hell something is going to die and I wont be able to fix it fast enough. But my question is there a resource to read up on good practices to conduct as a network admin that will save me time and trouble down the road. I am basically looking for a resource that I can read in order to learn from others mistakes before I make them my own. Thank you so much as allways!

Get yourself a subscription to Windows IT Pro - lots of useful tips and articles for this, including case studies.  After that, if your schooling was any good (and in the area of IT) then you should know all the major issues and Best Practices.

Otherwise, some great reference sites include:

Get a lab setup... get old hardware and setup a mini network that replicates the important parts of the network you work on.  Break it, have friends break it and fix it...

Alternatly you can use VMWare to create a virtual network running a server and virtual WS on one computer at the same time.
