Co-Operation in jeopardy

By Kuryous1 ·
We have recently up-graded our network to new components from servers to clients to routers, the whole works. With the old NT system,and not connected to the internet, network management wasn't taken seriously. Soon, I'll be leaving and they have no one to maintain the system (because it was never an issue in the past.) Now, I basically do all the networking maintenance and up-dates for the servers and routers and I can't seem to instill a sense of urgency to get someone trained or pay for a qualified systems administrator. Any suggestions other than simply communicating the obvious about security and redundancy? Thanks in advance!

I guess I'm basically looking for a format to properly express the cost that would be involved with a failure in the system or intrusion. Thanks

From the sounds of it you have a consience and are trying to do the 'right' thing before you leave and it is falling on deaf ears.

I have been in this situation before being the only person in the Company with any IT Knowledge and trying to pass on the importance of maintaining the system.

Other than verbally discussing issues with them try putting in writing your current tasks and concerns.

At least this way you will feel you have done all you can and it has been put in writing.

What you will probably find is that they will do nothing the system will hum along for a while, then when something goes wrong they will pay double for a Consulting Company to come and fix it and get nowhere near the same service you gave them.

Good Luck
