IT Administration

IT Administration is the processes and best practices for programming and development, and incorporates methodologies for managing activities and projects. Common methodologies include waterfall, prototyping, iterative and incremental development, spiral development, rapid application development, extreme programming and various types of agile methodology. The life-cycle "model" is a more general term for a category of methodologies, and a software development "process" a more specific term to refer to a specific process chosen by a specific organization.

Need protection from advanced malware attacks?
Need protection from advanced malware attacks?

Look no further than WatchGuard's Total Security Suite, providing defense in depth against today's most headlining attacks like Petya 2.0 and WannaCry. Keep your organization out of the news with protection from known and unknown threats.

I have a new boss who doesn't understand what my department does.

I was hoping someone on EE has been in the same situation where they've had to put together an outline of exactly what IT does.

If anyone is willing to share what they have that would be appreciated.

If you have a chart of the IT department that would be GREAT.

Or if anyone has a link to a good site that describes IT, that would also be appreciated.

This is a non-Windows AD network.  Mixed environment.
Windows/Mac/Linux

Is there a good tool to scan and list all the available hostnames on the network?
Same for the DNS.  Can I search local DNS and compile all the hostnames registered there?

Thanks in advance.

Spun up a DC too fast.  Wonder now how to change a DNS Domain name from domain.local to domain.com and also a NetBIOS name.  
Worth the stretch or easier just to wipe and reinstall?
DC Win2016 Server Standard.

Trying to deploy an AD and cannot use the NetBIOS name that I want.  Saying same already exist.  
How can it be if we do not have any domain?
Can it be conflicting with a machine name someone name as such?

So I didn't select a Desktop Experience while installing Server Standard 2016.   And looks like it installed a Core Edition.  Just a CMD command line.  
Does is mean no Desktop Experience is a Core Experience?

Hello -

SCCM environment:
2012 R2 Configuration Manager SP1
Console version: 5.0.8239.1000
Site version: 5.00.8239.1000

SCCM.PNG
Does my version look correct considering CU? I also would like to know if I can go directly from my version to SCCM 1706, if so, do you know where I can find step-by-step on the upgrade?

Thanks,

Hello,

I am new to XenServer, coming from VM ESXi, which I presently will say prefer.

New env looks to have either the free or essentials version, but I not sure.  I see two XenServers with Pools under them in the XenServerCenter, but only one of the two(bottom) allows access to alerts where you can set alerts, which I believe indicates it's licensed.

Pool1 w/two host - XServer 6.1 Build 59235p DBV:2010.0521
Pool2 w/Two host - Xserver 7.2 Build 2017-05-11 DBV: 2017.0517

The first of the two(top) It's pool and hosts listed on top, does not allow setting alerts and says licensing upgrade required.   So, I am assuming this setup being managed through the single Xcenter console is not licensed?  

Either way, under the aforementioned pool and hosts there is a vmhost that tends to be high in CPU when you check the top tier Xenserver/Pool performance tab where I see 21 CPU # listed.  I have to go to each vmhost and it's performance tab to find the specific vmhost with the corresponding high CPU usage.  Is  there any free ty in apps or scripting options that could ty things together and definitively tell you which Host is reflecting high resource use, cpu  in particular in this instance but memory, too, etc...?

Thank you.

What technology do you think is a fad that won’t last?

Not sure it really qualifies as a "fad" because it's been around so long, but I'd say that a lot of existing password guidelines (special characters, changing them every 90 days, capitalization rules, etc.) are on their way out. Don't believe me? Even the creator of those rules now regrets them.

Although, I'm really looking forward to the day when passwords can just go away almost completely...

Come to think of it.  After I graduated high school and started using computers more often I realized how difficult it was to remember passwords that had all those wacky requirements, so I started choosing last names of random people which is kind of similar to what xkcd had mentioned about four random words.  Admittedly, I was doing my best to try and work around difficult password requirements by making it easier for me to remember!  Take that, Bill Burr!

Does anyone know If I need another special AD Azure subscription for this feature or EMS (Enterprise Mobility + Security E5) license is enough?

We are a growing small business with no formal IT department.  

As admin of the company, I need a way to remote into any of our machines (when turned on) at any given time (ideally discreetly), as well as be able to log into existing user accounts (without prior knowledge of password) and perform Administrator-level tasks.

Most of our machines are Windows 10 Home, and that is serving the purpose of our company.

We currently subscribe to LogMeIn Central (or whatever they're calling it now) and it's a) expensive and b) easily disabled by the end user.  This is not so much a trust/concern issue with staff as it is about being able to get into the machine at ANY time as needed, if for some reason needed in an emergency.

Appreciate any insight. Thanks!

Morning techs,

I work for a large Computer Aided Dispatch software support company.  We supply the HW and SW that runs in Police and Fire Departments all over the world.  

At my Tier, the Tier one we basically gather logs and screenshots from the dispatchers computers to escalate tickets to the Engineers.  There is an error report functionality but the DISPATCHER (whom you know is extremely busy) must MANUALLY run it themselves at time of event.  

Are there any *light* tools out there that can be installed onto the dispatchers computers that would log error reports automatically?

Computers are running Win 7 with just the dispatching SW

Thank you,
