    Unqualified Network Admin
    I am in an interesting position. I have somehow been assigned a job for which I'm not entirely qualified. I'm now in charge of maintaining a network of roughly 480 computers as well as troubleshooting software issues. Can anyone point me in the right direction as far as some helpful reading? I would consider myself an advanced mac user, but I think I may be in over my head on this one.

    Thanks!

    I read a stat somewhere that said 75% of all managers are under-qualified for their job. Another stat said that 60% of all stats are made up. My point is, It's nice that you can admit that you're in over your head. As long as your better qualified and smarter than anybody else in your office you have nothing to worry about. If you get into a problem you can't figure out, just ask for a raise.

    It hasn't been implemented yet, but they're planning on X-serve.

    I know this is for a small business, but I hope it's a help anyhow:
