- System and network documentation is at the bottom of many system/network administrator's "To Do" lists. Consequently the vast majority of our systems, data centers and networks are undocumented. When a system or network administrator leaves there is no mechanism in place to train the replacement. Valuable knowledge is lost and the ramp up time of the new individual increases exponentially. This session looks at motivating system and network administrators to write documentation. The session also looks at the different types of documentation that are most useful to system/network administrators, operators and their managers. We will also look at the types of documentation that may be used to improve communications with your user communities and meet various ISO9000, FDA and other government regulations. Audience discussion is encouraged throughout the presentation.
- Prerequisites for attendees:
- Basic understanding of system/ network management or data center operations.
