Things Every Network Admin Should Know

These are private notes that came out of exasperation when I worked as phone support.

Things every network admin should know:

  1. What DNS is whether they know how to use it or not
  2. If they have been an ongoing firewall administrator, they should know if they host DNS or not
  3. How to use attrib
  4. Know how to Alt-Tab
  5. Know how to browse a drive
  6. Know that double-clicking opens a folder
  7. How to Ping
