Maintenance and Disaster Recovery

Dear experts,
we have just finished to set up our network in our organisation...i would like to know what type of role our IT staff could have for the network maintenance as well as recovery procedures. we would like to assign to certain employees roles in maintenance and recovery procedures.

Hope my question was clear enough...
N.B we will be using tapes for back up

OK there is a lot to this network maintenance and recovery procedures.  You will need (and one person can do more than one thing);

Register users
Maintain hardware (servers and desktops)
Provide software support
Install systems
and the list just goes on

What you need is an IT manager that understands everything who can then take on the tasks himself or hire people to do it.

I totally agree with ebjers.  I started to post here shortly after you put this thread up, but I decided to see what feedback you got.

This is not really something we can help you with without a lot more information about your company, department, your hardware list and infrastructure, backup space requirements, response to problems timeframe, and more.  This type of consulting requires (in my opinion) someone to visit your site or be able to review documents and talk to you (and maybe others) about requirements.

I recommend you hire a consultant (or IT manager, as ebjers states) to work with you directly to resolve these issues and build a plan specifically for your business needs.
