Network Manager - Minimum requirements/specification?
Not sure if this is really right forum for this, but couldn't see a better one :P
Been working as a IT tech for 8 months now, and enjoying it a lot (Not planning to move anyway :P), however obviously I'd like to look for ways to improve for the future, and trying to work out what's a good place to aim for.
a) What do you think are the priorities in terms of progressing? (e.g. Exchange? AD? DNS/DHCP? etc)
b) Are most NMs expected to have MSCEs? or is MSCA acceptable? (Got neither currently :P)
c) Do most schools assume you'll have knowledge in mac/linux/other OS's and backends?
d) Would you advise the cert route, or the buy one of your own and learn it kinda route :P (e.g. AD server etc etc)
e) Is specialisation in a smaller number of areas better, or a wider general knowledge?
Anything else you can think of would be appreciated, just trying to build a picture of what to do, and where to go in my spare time. Better to prepare sooner rather than later :D
