1  General discussions / General Discussion / Server health checks, idea's please? on: November 09, 2004, 09:33:57 AM
Hello people!

I'm currently putting together a check list for a bunch of engineers including myself to carry out for server health checks.

So far I've done the obvious stuff like...

  • Disk Space
  • Event Logs
  • Performance (page file, processor and memory)
  • Location of FSMO roles if domain controller


What else do you think I should include?  I don't want this to be pages and pages long, but I don't want to miss anything either. Basically, this is going to be used when visiting customers sites for the first time, and the idea of the check list is to make sure all is well before taking responsibilty for maintaining the servers. When it's finished I'm quite happy to share it on here in case it's of any use!

Any help will be very much apreciated!
2  Microsoft (MCSE, MCSD, MOUS, MCAD) / Server 2003 / 70-296 or 70-292, which to take first? on: April 13, 2004, 05:13:14 AM
Great!  I'll get started on that then, thanks for clearing that up!

After that I've got a CCNA to complete, so it never ends!
3  Microsoft (MCSE, MCSD, MOUS, MCAD) / Server 2003 / 70-296 or 70-292, which to take first? on: April 12, 2004, 03:41:17 PM
So just to confirm... I'm not a Windows 2000 MCSA, but I am a 2000 MCSE. If I pass 70-292 I get the 2003 MCSA?

Then I just have to take 70-296 and get the full MCSE 2003?

I've just completed my MCSE Windows 2000, and I'm thinking about going straight on to getting a 2003 upgrade.

I know there are two exams to do this; 70-292 and 70-296, but I'm not sure which to take first. Also, if I pass one of these do I get an MCSA although I'm only MCSE at the moment?
5  Microsoft (MCSE, MCSD, MOUS, MCAD) / 70-214 / Passed 70-214 today, no problems! on: March 29, 2004, 07:02:31 AM
It was a 2 hour exam, and the passing score was 700. I got 826.

At the end of the exam it also gives you a breakdown of each section, with a scale from "Needs development" to "Strong".

The sections were:

1) Implementing, Managing, and Troubleshooting Baseline Security

2) Implementing, Managing, and Troubleshooting Service Packs and Hotfixes

3) Implementing, Managing, and Troubleshooting Secure Communication Channels

4) Implementing, Managing, and Troubleshooting Authentication and Remote Access Security

5) Implementing and Managing a Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) and Encrypting File System (EFS)

6) Monitoring and Responding to Security Incidents.
6  General discussions / Certifications and IT jobs/Salaries / Already CCIE, worth going for degree? on: March 25, 2004, 11:27:57 AM
Hi,

I recently moved away from a job in network management to get back into a real technical role again. I looked into starting on my own as a consultant last year, and found that for me, I needed more experience as I'm only 27.

If you've got a CCIE then I personally don't think a degree will help you. Especially if you're considering independant consultancy.

I don't know about the US, but here in the UK there are personal 'coaches' for those that wish to suceed in business on their own. The hardest part for most people is their existing financial comitments, especially those with a high salary which may have higher outgoings.

On the other hand, if you've got some savings or something to help start you off then I think consulting is the way to go!

Good luck whichever way you decide!
7  Microsoft (MCSE, MCSD, MOUS, MCAD) / 70-214 / Passed 70-214 today, no problems! on: March 25, 2004, 11:21:39 AM
I passed 70-214 today, although I had the flu and felt like I was dying!

Study Tips:

If you've done 70-220 as an elective then you'll have no problem with this one. This doesn't mean that you don't need to study extra material though.

Make sure you understand IPSEC / L2TP and PPTP. Learn how you'd allow this through a firewall.

Make sure you understand where servers should be placed with firewalls. On the DMZ (perimeter), internet or intranet (private) side?

I got a lot of questions of Certificates and I feared this the most as it's my weak point having no real experience with it.

Other topics included:

Wireless security; understand about ad-hoc mode, closed network mode (turning off SSID broadcasts), and the different standards 802.11 and 802.1x

This certainly wasn't the most difficult exam, but it does focus on security on a broad range as it also had questions on NTFS and share permissions.

Finally, understand GPO, loopback processing mode, and trusts!!


I hope this is helpfull to anyone wishing to take this exam.

Whats ITIL? Why doesn't it age? I thought that all certs would age because the technology moves on?
9  Microsoft (MCSE, MCSD, MOUS, MCAD) / 70-220 / Passed today! on: November 13, 2003, 07:25:47 PM
Well, I passed it despite the lack of study time!

Nothing unexpected really. The questions I didn't like were the "connect the objects" type where you have to link various objects together with the appropriate links. For example, I had a radius server, radius proxy, radius client and a portable computer and you have to link them with proxy request, pptp etc...

All in all, not the most difficult but make sure you know your authentication protocols from encryption protocols, LAN protocols and RAS protocols. Radius (IAS), L2TP with IPSEC and PPTP.

Hi,

Wish me luck, I'm taking 70-220 tomorrow. Haven't been able to study much because of work, but it's something I'm interested in so hopefully I'll pass!
11  Microsoft (MCSE, MCSD, MOUS, MCAD) / Windows 2000 track general / Any MCSE's starting Cisco certification? on: November 07, 2003, 08:56:35 PM
Some interesting comments. I think it's fair to say that either way we go, whether it's Microsoft, Cisco, Novell, or any other certification, it's always moving faster than most of us can keep up.

Those of us that do keep up with the certs will hopefully be in the heart of it all at a good company or be in a good position when looking for employment.

For me personally, I want to gain my MCSE to prove to myself that the 6 years of working with Microsoft networks has given me something I worked hard for, even if it is just a title.

I could continue to peruse the MCSE for 2003, but I like a change so I'll definitely be aiming for a CCNA. I have a lot of respect for those guys, as a friend of mine works for an ISP and has over 1000 routers to keep in order!

How far do you go?  At the end of the day we've all got a life! (I hope)

Of course it doesn't depend on the JD. I'm talking about the 'real world'... What's most beneficial for me as a person?  Specialising in the Cisco (network engineer) side of networking, or specialising in the Microsoft (systems engineer) side of networking?

What do you think is more valuable?   Cisco or Microsoft certification?
14  Microsoft (MCSE, MCSD, MOUS, MCAD) / Windows 2000 track general / printers in 98 disappear on: October 24, 2003, 07:41:23 PM
This sounds more like a driver problem to me. You won't be able to find services in W9x, only NT based OS such as W2K, W2K3 and XP.

I'll bet it's a driver issue.

Hi,

I'm just 2 exams away from being an MCSE, and I'm really itching to start on the Cisco track (CCNA first). My problem is that I've got two Cisco 2600 routers on my desk just calling out to me, but I've got to concentrate my efforts on the remaining two MCSE elective exams!

I'd be interested to know if there is anyone else in the same boat?
