They say “Necessity makes strange bedfellows”.
That’s how my Linux career started, fresh out of NT 4 admin course, working as a windows sysadmin, i inherited a couple of battered Linux DNS server (redhat) which soon died.
I didn’t even know what “ls” is, but i had to reinstall a fresh Linux based DNS server from scratch, and it was the most interesting thing i have done !
I was terrified of the servers at first, but soon enough i learned what i needed to work with it and never looked back, the next job i took was a Linux sysadmin position, and that’s what I’m doing since then, 10 years after.
Linux is my hobby, passion and proffession and I just love this platform, its working great, its cheap,
one sysadmin can manage hundreds of servers by himself (If they are installed correctly that is), and any IT manager can save his company thousands of dollars by moving applications to Linux servers.
This blog is to help other sysadmins with their Linux issues, i have learned and still learn a lot about Linux, IT management, high traffic web sites and Linux – windows integration, and i wish to help others with the know how i acquired over the years.
