  • SBS job??

    Hi

    I was thinking for a job of becoming a SBS administrator.

    What would be involved?

    What training would I need/have to take?

    What courses would I need to do before I can start that course ETC ETC.

    I have just left High school and I might be going to college next year.

    I live in Spring Texas Houston

    Thanks
    Andy

    You would need the sort of experience that would make it unnecessary to ask those questions.

    You'll need to start at the bottom (Helpdesk, Desktop Support etc) and work your way up - that's the way the IT industry works. Administrator of a Windows Domain is an extremely responsible position and is not offered (in general) to fresh graduates.

      Helpdesk, as painful as it can be, is usually the best way to work towards being an admin. If you are thinking of the design side then you can get away with theory courses.

        Although SBS administrator is a great job, I wouldn't limit myself to something so specific. You should have general Windows Server skills as well as desktop experience - so develop those. Get yourself a trial machine with LOTS of RAM. Learn to install systems into Virtual Machines. Practice and destroy, then when you have seen a few systems, enroll in a couple of courses or do them online for Server 2008 and Vista/XP. Download the public beat of SBS 2008 and trial versions of other software. Meanwhile get some work experince in any way you can for about half a year, do the courses and by the end of 12 months you should be quite markettable.
        TIA

          I think, to start with, play with the products, get to know it, and maybe do the MSCA courses/exams.
