“Obviously IT is important but it doesnt generate any money”

Hi Everyone,

I’m in a bit of a situation here and I was hoping for some advice.

So I’ve been working at this company for just over a year now. I started as a DBA / Programmer who also took on some data entry. Basically I was told “all of our processes suck and we need you to automate them”. Six months in, I did all the automating I could and started working on some big hardware issues. This led to me getting lunch with my boss and him asking me “Would you be interested in IT?”.

Since then, I’ve been in love with IT work. I’ve been able to work with no limitations. I am 100% responsible for purchasing, inventory, networking, and technician work. I run it all. It’s all so fun and fulfilling. The company offered to pay for my IT certs, so I’m in the middle of studying for my A+ now.

Here’s the catch, due to some staffing issues, I’ve been doing nearly all of the data entry lately as well. It’s still technically my job since my title and job description was never updated. Three people are out, leaving me and a temp (who I am training).

I’m working 50 hour-weeks (hourly), and cannot find time to take care of the big ticket IT projects I’d like to work on. When I talked to my boss about it, he said “Obviously IT is important but it doesn’t generate us any money”.

There are some HUGE gaps in our security and IT policy. By which I mean we have no policies in place and we’re running PPTP VPN, no network firewall currently, etc. Our DC is slow as shit because our EDI software runs on it and takes all of the resources. And this is after I’ve made some HUGE improvements (we have consistent uptime now which is nice).

I’m so conflicted because A. There are some huge red-flags here, and I’m so overworked and making $17 an hour. But there are some huge benefits here too. I mean, endless overtime, the ability to work on anything (after hours) and build experience on things that I wouldn’t be allowed to touch elsewhere.

Should I stick it out, continue focusing on building my portfolio and getting my certs, or should I try to find new work

What do we as sysadmins need to be learning about this year to keep relevant and not become a dinosaur and obsolete?

I personally have mcsa 2012 , citrix , ccna (really old now though 5+ years) ejpt from elearnsecurity and currently working on mcsa for office 365.

I can not help feel i am behind everyone.

We are a two man IT team who are a jack of all trades in a SMB so it is harder to see what everyone is working on in the sysadmin world right now.

What should we be learning about and studying to stay current? And what would be a waste of time at this point?

Sysadmins of Reddit, where do you watch for broken updates?

I'm reviewing updates on WSUS for this month's roll out, and in my properly healthy state of paranoia I am always concerned that one bad update will slip through the cracks.

I've updated a test system, checked r/sysadmin r/windows and r/windowsserver but I was wondering if there are any other places that are good sources for patch updates.

Next week I'll be updating Linux servers, so I'll run the test box and check here, r/linux r/linux_admin r/redhat r/debian and r/centos .

Even with my Reddit sources, I worry about a bad update slipping through the cracks. I'm sure I'm not the only one, so let's talk about it.

Where do you look before installing updates?

Burned, blocked, and tired

I work as a jr sa for a medium sized company, I love the job and the laid back atmosphere. I started with no training other than a couple of years as a tech, basically swimming with the sharks. During my time in the company I have worked on various projects and learned a lot from them. I am now feeling burned out, not by the job, but by the IT department & company. The company is very cheap, we have 10+ yrs old servers, buy equipment 2nd hand, eBay sometimes (scary). There is little documentation from the people that have worked there before me. Our development team is all interns, or fresh out of school with no real life experience. The applications and webpages look poorly designed. The biggest turn down is my sr sa. He’s a good guy with a lot of knowledge, but with very bad habits. He thinks he knows everything, and it constantly shows. He does not follow up things, such as not patching servers for years! Gets sidetracked easily with level 1 things such as a printer troubleshooting that a tech can do. He got everyone used to call him directly and does not know when to say no. This is a big drag in his day, leaving him to spend little time to work on actual sysadmin work. He gets upset if you don’t agree with his decisions, constantly blocks projects if he does not think it’s good, which in 90% of the times we actually need these. Has only basic knowledge of networking (outsourced) and security (outsourced). I just recently finish my bachelors in it management/development, and planning on going for a master. After everything I learned from school I truly believe that the infrastructure could crash at any moment, not because I’m not doing my job, but because I really can’t, because I’m constantly blocked with the excuse of I have more experience than you. The company can do so much better if it focused on hiring the correct people. Some of the project managers treat employees rude. I want to make things better in anyway I can, but I don’t know if I should, or maybe move on to another place. I truly don’t want to leave, but I have to I will. Sorry for the long read, it’s my first post.

Cant wrap my head around image pushing using SCCM

Hey guys,

The sysadmin who worked here left, and while I had a few months to learn from him, we didn't dive into SCCM.

I'm helpdesk, and the new sysadmin is more of a NetApp and VMware guy. So he says he can't help me with the SCCM and same goes for my manager.

So now I would like to get the hang of it myself, and while I read literally dozens of articles and watched a few videos about deploying images via SCCM to our environment, I can't understand how to make use of it in my work place.

We already have good images, I just want to add another one of my own to add this subject to my knowledge. It might seem like the wrong thing to focus on as a help desk kid, but it's something that might be essential for my next workplace, or who knows where.

Anyway, so I need help figuring my step by step plan.

We have an SCCM server, which has the WDS role on it. But I think it's not in use.

To install an image on a machine, I PXE boot it and pick the image from the choices I have there (win 7, 10, etc).

In SCCM, when I go into Software Libraries > Operating System > Task Sequence > I have the ones we already have.

What do I need to do to start fresh? I have my own Windows ISO, and I would like to customize it by installing some software of my choosing, adding to a domain, giving it a domain name prior to installing it, etc.

What should I do?

Thanks

Sourcing high end projector replacement bulbs and filters (NEC NP-PX800X)

A little out of my wheelhouse: Sourcing an NEC NP-PX800X replacement filter and bulbs for a client. Unit had Philips bulbs in from factory and I’d like to replace with a genuine Philips lamp. I am also insisting on doing the filters too so the new bulb gets the best conditions it can.

Bulb part number: NP22LP Filter part number: NP02FT

Before I dive in head first into an investigative dissertation on high quality projector bulb replacements I figured I’d poll the mob. I noticed you can get the bare bulb too, which I am more than comfortable swapping into the OEM housing. Is this superior to a Philips bulb in a 3rd party housing?

Notes: I am open to other maintenance items I should handle while I’m doing the bulb and filters

I also fully know they won’t be cheap and I believe each PX800X projector has two bulbs.

Any Sophos SSL VPN users here? Did you know it uses TLS 1.0?

To my surprise - I found our fully up to date Sophos UTM appliance uses TLS 1.0 for its SSL VPN tool. I am having a very hard time believing a Sophos security appliance is using TLS 1.0.

I've escalated this to support and they are going to send instructions on how to set it to use TLS 1.2 instead. I'll paste those steps here.

EDIT: The Sophos technical support agent I spoke to confirmed with me that it was TLS 1.0 and that I'd need to have the case escalated so that they can remotely connect and make the change for me. However, I've done some actual in depth tests and am seeing evidence that it's TLS 1.2. I'll confirm back here once their higher support team gets in touch with me.

PSA: Chrome distrusts certificates issued by Symantec starting today

This was announced back in September for v66, but we have machines running 65.0.3325.162 that display the full page "NET::ERR_CERT_AUTHORITY_INVALID" warning so it seems they jumped the gun a bit.

EDIT

There is an answer to the intermittent weirdness going on here, at the bottom of Google's blog post laying out the plan to deprecate trust for Symantec CAs is a note regarding v65.

Basically any certificate issued by "Legacy Symantec PKI" (read a Symantec CA) after 12/1/2017 is not trusted by v65, that is the date Symantec was supposed to transition everything to Digicert. The deadlines for the v66 and v70 releases are unchanged.

Thanks /u/SassMaster7000 for pointing out that note.

Does Microsoft know they support Windows-To-Go ?

We bought a couple of Windows-To-Go certified USB sticks. The expensive Kingston Workspace kind. (Waste of money because you can also format a normal stick in order to use Windows-To-Go). We went with the certified sticks in order to have the most compatibility.

I've tried a couple of Windows versions but eventually went with Windows 10 LTSB. Installing the image on the stick is super easy with the included installer that is included since Windows 8. You can even automate the process using PowerShell.

The problem I'm having is that each large Windows update can't be installed on the stick. The update downloads, starts installing and then greets me with the message in the likes of "Update can't be installed on a removable device". I mean wth? This is something that is officially supported by Microsoft, I'm using a certified device and I'm using the original tools in order to install them.

Portscan: XMAS-Scan is not answering

Hey,

I am trying to setup a small portscan tool using python and scapy. My problem is that my XMAS scan isn't working but I don't know why. I am sending TCP packets with flags = F,P,U but I don't get any answers from the server. I know that I shouldn't recieve an answer in case the port is open but I do not recieve any responses at all even I know that some of the ports should be closed (tested them before with a SYN scanning which is working fine). So why isn't there a answer from the server when the port is closed?

Why is hosted email so expensive? Looking for an alternative to cPanel email hosting.

Moving a couple wordpress sites off of siteground to WPEngine and I need an email host to replace the mail functionality we had through cPanel. There's about a dozen or so email addresses on a couple domains I need to host.

Everything I've looked into (rackspace, zoho, gsuite) costs ~$4/user/mo. I know that's nothing for an actual business, but this environment is just one person using a handful of addresses such as admin@domain, payments@domain, support@domain, etc. The costs quickly balloon with how many addresses are involved.

What I don't really get is that I can get a cheap cpanel webhost plan for $4/mo and get a ton of addresses that (seem to) do almost the same things as these hosted emails (IMAP access, webmail, filtering) for a fraction of the cost. Is that really my best option here?
