33 Tips That Sysadmins Wish They Would’ve Learned Sooner
Welcome to the best list of sysadmin tips on the internet! I can write that with confidence because I had a lot of help from hundreds of other sysadmins in writing this article.
I’ve been in IT for about 20 years and have learned some valuable lessons over that period. To that end, I wanted to help other up and coming sysadmins avoid some of the mistakes I had made when starting.
However, I’m only one person, so I reached out to the community at /r/sysadmin [ reddit.com] and asked everyone there for their tips. I was thankful and shocked at the overwhelming number of tips submitted, with almost 300 responses the first day!
It took me a while to read and sort through all the amazing advice. Here are the 33 best sysadmin tips that came from this group effort. Thanks to everyone from /r/sysadmin who left a comment!
