@CanadianLuke Not sure, something for a generalist?
 
There's a lot for a SysAdmin. What experience have you had already? Have you done helpdesk type work and want to move up from there? Do you want to focus on servers, clients, networks, printers, security...?

I am a one-man IT dept and perform a variety of tasks.

@Michael the latest edition apparently got split up into parts but amazon.com/Practice-System-Network-Administration-Second/dp/… is what folk recommended me
(and while I've gotten not gotten my paws on the third edition, since my current job is... not letting me touch the fun stuff, it is likely to be excellent)

@JourneymanGeek Thanks, looks interesting
 
@Michael I would look at automation then. If you're dealing with user accounts, how can you automate it more? If you're dealing with software installs, how can you automate it?
 
8:13 PM
automation is good
