Long story short; i have 6+ years of computer repair "IT" work (with my A+ certification and many dell certifications) Having my own computer company (high majority of residential) i feel very comfortable with PC and MAC alike in software and hardware.
This week at work (church) I have been given the IT contract. This was mainly to "downsize" and save money, and they knew i had computer experience so it was a "lets just have cam do it" moment.
While i am 100% happy for this and ready to accept a little extra cash monthly, my expertise is not in Windows Server 2003.
SOOOooo... This is what i know, and i would LOVE any network professionals who do this as their main interest (like i do PC repair) to give me a few tips or tricks?
Again i have the experience with hardware/software and have a little windows server 2000 experience.
Church = 10 PC's connected to their 1 Windows Server 2003.
This server is 100% up-to-date as of yesterday. The company that was servicing the server for the church had their last day yesterday.
1 time a month, one of their techs would come into the church for a 4 hour period.
"Server maintinance" is all they did.
My question for all of you is what should i be looking for? what should i be doing 1 time a month?
here is my current list and let me know what you think:
Defrag all server harddrives
scan-disk all server HDD
(i assume windows server 2003 had built in error reports and checking so ...ill do that)
What you all think! I assume this small biz server does not need too much work. I noticed that the internal hard drives are on the full side. what % should be free at all times?
Thank you-thank you-thank you
