10 ways to Handle problems yourself instead of System Administrator-Organization Tips

When you are working in organisation , you may need system administrator to solve the some of your problems.  Don’t call System Administrator for your simple silly mistakes.  Try to solve yourself and reduce the work load of System Administrator.  Here is the list of top 10  tips to solve the problems yourself.

Organisation Tips 1: Reboot your Computer
Let me tell one computer engineer joke..!!!

There are four engineers traveling in a car; a mechanical engineer, a chemical engineer, an electrical engineer and a computer engineer. The car breaks down.

“Sounds to me as if the pistons have seized. We’ll have to strip down the engine before we can get the car working again”, says the mechanical engineer.

“Well”, says the chemical engineer, “it sounded to me as if the fuel might be contaminated. I think we should clear out the fuel system.”

“I thought it might be an grounding problem”, says the electrical engineer, “or maybe a faulty plug lead.”

They all turn to the computer engineer who has said nothing and say: “Well, what do you think?” “Ummm perhaps if we all get out of the car and get back in again ?”

Yes it is true.  Many issues, such as applications not launching, not being able to reach Websites or getting certificate errors, can be fixed by restarting your computer.

Step 2: Patience
 Some application take time to open.  Give it time before freaking out.

Step 3: Password Insecurity
Don’t save your passwords in your computer or laptop.  write it in your personal diary, if you hard to remember.

Step 4:Don’t believe Scams 
One day my girlfriend told “I won $10000. They asked me to mail”.
I don’t know how she is believing those kind of scams.
While visiting, some ads may show ” ipad for $10 , here is the last ipad.”
Don’t believe those ads innocently.

Step 5: Don’t open the Spam mails
if the mail is in Junk folder, then don’t open it.

Step 6:Be Aware of Your Assets
Users need to be careful of how and where they use their mobile devices. Be alert and lock your device so that not just anyone can use it.

Step 7: Backup
Don’t lose the device, but if it does get lost, the company has to remotely wipe the data to protect its sensitive information. Back up all data elsewhere (and not just to the SD card inside) so that everything can be restored.

Step 8:Report Issues Promptly
If there really is a problem, don’t wait to report it. If the problem is caused by malware or some kind of an attacker, every second delayed is time for the attackers to steal more information.

Step 9: Company Equipment: Company Data

Don’t store personal files or download non-essential files onto company servers. The last thing the IT department needs is to have to deal with malicious content that piggy-backed in, or illegal content.

step 10:Email Responsibly

Or videos, for that matter. Not only do these images wind up consuming corporate resources, it gets employees used to opening files that seem to come from someone they know even if the messages are non-work related.
