I’m transitioning out of higher level programming and into the wonderful world of hardware. This is something I haven’t really done aside from my work terms 20 years ago. I’m pretty technically minded and the guy who supported me in this move says that he knows my skills and that it is right up my alley. It’ll make quite a change from programming in Pascal for 15 years and then .NET.
Here is the expected level of work:
The tasks I would have you do on arrival are:
- Help with Server inventory, we have a collection of powershell scripts that go out to all the servers in all zones and pull WMI info to our central spreadsheet. There are a few things to automate there. We have a few firewall and port issues to iron out as well.
- 2003 migration – We have some 2003 servers to follow up on and help the client move to 2012 servers
- Virtual template and build doc review. These are the OS images we clone our server build off of. We need some tweaks.
- Help with SCCM clients on servers used for security patching
- Regular HEAT cases – Troubleshooting server errors, looking through logs etc.
I think I can handle it. I’m learning Powershell right now through Pluralsight. Still, it’d be nice to have some concrete work to tackle.
