    Windows and AS/400.

    Locked

    by bmajors ·

    I work for the State of Oklahoma, (this is my 3rd month), and I am trying to persuade them to make changes. My boss, unfortunately, thinks Microsoft is out to get him. My job is the help desk, and I continually have print problems with the end users, Win98 using RPM, and I am leaning towards W2k pro and server migration. We are using NT 4.0 with Lotus Notes and NetFinity. I have used W2k pro for almost 2yrs and love it compared to NT, but they think it hasn’t been out long enough! I would apperciate any input on the pros and cons of my thinking as well as any links that I could use to help in my crusade. I should also mention that the IBM AS/400 is our app server.

      Government organizations have a long update cycle.
      I would broaden your training.
      By the time the next update occurs, LINUX will be the server OS chosen.
      (The “Backdoor Problem” is causing many governments to go in this direction.)
      The setup installed where you work is very current compared to some I have seen.
      You should not be having print problems.
      Print problems are not usually an OS problem, they are usually an admin problem.
      Time to start digging in the Resource Kit.
