    External Support for one man band network

    Hi,

    When I was away last week we had a blip on the network (first time in 4 years and it was because the idiots where turning the power on and off in school) so I have been tasked to look at external support for my system.

    I work alone and like it that way... they will have to use thumbscrews to get a password for my system .... but I realise that if disaster happens then it may be an idea to have a backup person ready.

    There is no one in school to do it so I am thinking of an external company. Cost is a big issue and the system is probably only set up so I can use it correctly but I need to do this.

    Has anyone got something like this in place? I am in Yorkshire and I don't really want a company on site but just someone to come in...read the documentation and sort stuff out if I am not available.

    DO you have a neighbouring school you can set up a reciprocal agreement with?

    We are a private school so no contacts at other schools but I suppose I could ask.

    This, or leave your number with one person you trust in the school, and failing that, the LEA should be able to support you in dire need, otherwise what are they here for!
