Install and configure hardware, software and operating systems on desktops, workstations, servers etc.

 

Maintain the network hardware (switches) connection to the internet

 

Monitoring of email/networks/servers for glitches in programs or security threats.

 

Check logs to see what's going wrong with any part of the system. [e.g.: In a *nix environment, this is done by running "tail -f /var/log/syslog | less" to view open log files constantly in the background.]

 

Backup procedures including scheduling backups and restoring from them in case of a hard disk crash.
