What does a server administrator do?

What does a server administrator do?

Server administrators are responsible for a company’s servers, network, and workstations, and are in charge of a variety of responsibilities that keep the company’s systems running successfully. They may install programs, update the operating system with the latest patches, manage the server’s security policy, and add users.

Server administrators keep an eye on data flowing in and out of the network and are usually responsible for keeping the network secure, therefore a server administrator might also respond to network security concerns by tightening the firewall settings.

The server administrator needs to be able to replace or add new hardware to the servers, workstations and network devices, and may be expected to repair any issues in a reasonable period of time. Sometimes server administrators need to work odd hours in order to ensure the company’s computer systems keep working properly.

What is the workplace of a Server Administrator like?

Server administrators often work for businesses that have a high volume of web activity. Most routine server administration tasks are completed during regular business hours. However, new system upgrades or server fixes must be completed during odd hours of the night or on weekends. This is when website traffic and office activity will be at its lowest and therefore have less of an impact on business.
