I'd sign up if it wasnt for all that Microsoft stuff..



Act­ually, I've administered and designed several MS based networks, but haven't fooled around too much with exchange and active directory. :/

Sounds like a great job...and right up my alley.

Good luck with the hire, hope you can help an Arfcommer find a job!

Exchange isn't hard, it just requires some reading....

AD is just LDAP with some MS-isms. You can manage it almost entirely via command-line stuff...I took an AD training course and still have the material; it's really not hard if you worked with NDS (welcome to 10 years ago) or LDAP (welcome to 15 years ago).

AD is just MS's spin on ancient enterprise authentication technology...not a big deal

(Oh, well, ok, it's LDAP with a Kerberos wrapper...)

Kurt,

I'm going to send you my resume.

Currently Assistant Director of Techology responsible for a 1,200 PCs/20 servers/5,000 user network over 10 locations.

Setup and designed 5 locations during a rewiring program. Designed one location during construction. Manage a staff of 3 full time employees, and up to 6 part time employees over the summers.

Setup and mange a Windows Exchange 2003 server, Windows 2003 Server, Windows 200 Server, Netware 5 and 6.5 servers.

Since our department is a grand total of 4 full time employees, I not only work on servers, but answer the helpdesk phone providing technical support. I also travel to our locations providing on site service - everything from fixing a network outage to replacing a users CD-ROM drive.

Av.

I'd be interested, but my dream is to flat get-out of the IT business all together. I'm so sick of computers, servers and routers that I could puke. Ya got a blacksmith job available over there?

I have enough stress as it is in KY. I'm not going to move to another state to amplify the problem.

If i can't fix it, it gets a bullet to the head.
