It's been a crazy couple weeks at work – riddle with problems and challenges. We've refined our patching process for desktops and will finally start using Radia to distribute them next week. It's been a long haul – six months or more of testing, tweaking, etc. Now it's time to play catch up!
I've spent most of my time working on HP OpenView. About 10 months ago we purchased OpenView Operations and Network Node Manager. Some days I just wanna pull my hair out, but when I'm just about to loose it, it seems a break thru always saves the day.
We're also in the process of hiring a systems person for IT. They'll be responsible for all the network devices, switching, routing, etc. They'll also keep a watchful eye on things from a security perspective. This addition will help take the load off my server admins and allow them to focus on maintaining the servers and various the systems/applications we all depend on.
