Project Day 33: DataDog vs Spiceworks vs New Relic

So it is still a work in progress report but so far DataDog and New Relic seem really great looking from the information I’ve managed to glance from websites, reviews and youtube overview and tutorial videos. I don’t know quite what we are using them for, every time I ask what they are to be…

Project Day 32: Powering through the Shell

So typical Monday, rock into work and be like “what am I doing today” and then proceed to piss around until I’m awake. I feel this is a story that everyone is accustomed to because we all get over the weekend and are like “why do you not last longer, WHY!”, then you get over…

Project Day 29+30: Access Point

So let’s start with yesterday, it was small. I decommissioned a single access point, did the appropriate documentation and learnt that when we remove something from the ringmaster that you need to “deploy” items we remove from the system.

Project Day 28: Another Surface

So today was all about finishing off the surface pro 4’s as I found out who they belonged to which meant I could put them into the proper OU, add the proper permissions and security groups to them (if needed). After that I learnt about Ruckus Zoneplanner, why? Because its a future job coming up…

Project Day 27: Test Bed Creation
