This is how I like to admin

Tuesday, January 19th, 2010

A bit of relaxed late-night admin from the comfort of the big cushy chair.
Here is a brand new Lenovo Thinkpad X200 that has been running on a single charge for over 6 hours now, non stop (ultra low power mode). I am connected into work via our Citrix access gateway, logged into an admin desktop on Citrx, and am in fact rolling out a Citrix server remotely.
On the right of the screen is the big RES Wisdom job that runs the installation script. As you can see the entire process is hands-off. On the left is the console of the server, connected via the ILO. I dont need to do anything on the desktop, I just monitor it there and it gives me something to watch.
