Keeping the SYSAdmin Informed

By emedina ·
Hello Everyone,

Anyone reading thisI'm hoping that anyone reading this may be able to help out in a way or other.
You see, my concern is not technical, but let me explain. I have a problem trying to convince my boss that is very important to keep the system administrator (that's me) informed of who, what gets change on our servers (or systems) overall. We have a small shop here and from time to time a tasks has being delegated to a programmer or junior technician and because I was not awareand these guys did not tell me we have ran into the situation where instead of fixing something, is being screw up and then I being told about it, and duplicating efforts. I'm trying to find white papers, or management material that I can make my point with my boss regarding how important it is that the sysadmin is kept informed. Can anyone help? Thank you.

Change admin passwords

My advice would be to just change the passwords and give them your cell phone number if they need to make any changes. Good luck at that small shop, I don't think you have clearly defined goals and boundaries there. Always seems to be an issue in companies.

Matt is wright change the passwords and give them a cell phone number or a pager number. I have had this problem for some time now. I changed the passwords and put my foot down. Now they can page me or call me. My boss requested I return thecall within 10 minutes.

Hope this helps
