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.

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.

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 -

I am looking for some training for end users that will be utilizing g suite with new chrome books. This will be for our new school, so teachers and students will have access to our organization. I have already setup our OU structure, however now that I will designate a admin at the school location, I'd like to know if anyone could share an example training manual, process, policy etc... for onboarding clients that will be assigned a chrome book.

Thank you,

People,

My current company, let say ParentCo.com (1000+ user base) has just acquired new smaller company of just 80-100 users last month.

They've got all on premise:
AD domain controllers - Single Forest domain called ChildCo.com
File Servers ~ 12 TB on their office
Exchange server 2010 with email domain ChildCo.com, ChildCo2.com, Company2.com and SmallCo.com [my current email domain is First.LastName@ParentCo.com]
35+ Windows Server AD domain joined to ChildCo.com
AD user account: FLastname@ChildCo.com [my current AD domain uses First.LastName@ParentCo.com]

So how can I integrate them all into my Datacenter with the AD domain ParentCo.com and converting all users to be First.LastName@ParentCo.com ?

Where to start first so I can allow them to logon to my AD domain using First.LastName@ParentCo.com & access email from my new company ?

I will create the separate thread for migrating:

Active Directory
Exchange Server
File Server

to my ParentCo.com AD domain.
