our network admin left the company out of the blue so i got bumped up to his spot b/c i have some experience with routing and swithching and installing voip phones but it was always under his supervision. i was working the help desk before this happened. so my question is what should i be doing to become a good network admin? i am focusing on our voip phone system now - but i feel like i should be doing more.
Maybe this post would fit better under "Getting started with LANs" but OK. First of all: congratulations!
I hope that your predecessor has left everything in more or less working order. It would also be nice if you had the passwords for all devices to be able to do some adminstration. Maybe that's something to check and, depending on your company's security standards change so that the previous admin will not have access anymore.
For the rest; if all is working without too much problems you have time to dive into the network and become aquainted with it. Make a backup of all system configurations.
Also, when a new manager is installed, the company is often willing to grant his proposals for changes. So if there is something that is not as you would like it, then request to have it changed now. The boss will not always be in such a generous mood!
