Rules of IT Administration

  1. Remember the "K.I.S.S." principle..."keep isimple, Supervisor".
     
  2. If you have to assign permissions to one entity you'll have to assign them to another.

    Similar, if I'm assigned to complete a particular task once I'll likely be assigned the task again.
     
  3. The workers change but the work stays pretty much the same.
     
  4. Assign permissions to a Group | Role rather than to an individual user.
     
  5. It's easier to manage membership than it is to manage permissions.
     
  6. Beware: anything that I can "engineer", I can also "over-engineer".
     
  7. Remember: just because I can, doesn't mean I should.
     
  8. When in doubt in Windows, right click.
     
  9. I can't turn to the left or right in Windows | Exchange | SQL Server without being permitted to do so.
     
  10. If I'm in I.T. and there's a problem with a computer it's my fault.
     
  11. The add on rule to Rule #8: Even if it's not my fault it's my fault.
     
  12. When you're designing an I.T. structure make sure that your design works hard for you rather than making you work hard.
I've copied this post from one of the site and it is wonderful to share with you all.
