The job of a system administrator (sysadmin) is to maintain and troubleshoot a computer system. A sysadmin can have a wide range of duties that differ widely, depending on the size and type of an organization. Basic responsibilities often include training and supporting staff, installing, maintaining and upgrading both software and hardware, doing research and troubleshooting, documenting the network and supervising databases. A qualified sysadmin should have a well-founded knowledge and experience of the type of network in place, standard office applications, network solutions and hardware installation. Technical know-how is a must, of course, but soft skills are also important since a sysadminís duties usually involve teaching and training others.
On a day to day basis, a sysadmin might be called on to make backups of computers and servers, add or delete new users, maintain effective and up-to-date virus protection and troubleshoot any problems the staff canít solve on their own. Even the best sysadmins though, arenít able to solve each and every computer problem. Consultants and specialists might sometimes be required for more complex problems or services. The sysadmin should also not be the only person who understands how the computer system functions. Skills and information should be shared with other members of the staff through training measures and thorough documentation of the system.
