What is The Role Of the System Administrator?

last updated in Categories , ,

Can you explain the role of the system administrator?

The person who is responsible for setting up and maintaining the system or server is called as the system administrator. System administrators may be members of an information technology department. Most of the following discussion also applies to network and Windows system admins.


Duties of a system administrator

The duties of a system administrator are wide-ranging, and vary widely from one organization to another. Sysadmins are usually charged with installing, supporting, and maintaining servers or other computer systems, and planning for and responding to service outages and other problems. Other duties may include scripting or light programming, project management for systems-related projects.

The system administrator is responsible for following things:

  1. User administration (setup and maintaining account)
  2. Maintaining system
  3. Verify that peripherals are working properly
  4. Quickly arrange repair for hardware in occasion of hardware failure
  5. Monitor system performance
  6. Create file systems
  7. Install software
  8. Create a backup and recover policy
  9. Monitor network communication
  10. Update system as soon as new version of OS and application software comes out
  11. Implement the policies for the use of the computer system and network
  12. Setup security policies for users. A sysadmin must have a strong grasp of computer security (e.g. firewalls and intrusion detection systems)
  13. Documentation in form of internal wiki
  14. Password and identity management

Cloud computing and sysadmin

Cloud computing is nothing but a large number of computers connected through the Internet/Wan. Cloud computing is now part of technology and sysadmin must lean:

  1. Automation software such as puppet, chef, etc.
  2. Cloud infrastructure such as AWS, Openstack etc.
  3. Network services in cloud such as Content delivery networks (Akamai, CloudFront etc) and DNS servers.
  4. Source control
  5. Designing best practices for backups, and whole infrastructure.

What is so special about the system administrator account?

The root account has full (unrestricted) access, so he/she can do anything with system. For example, root can remove critical system files. In addition, there is no way you can recover file except using tape backup or disk based backup systems.

Many tasks for system administration can be automated using Perl/Python or shell scripts. For example:

  • Create new users
  • Resetting user passwords
  • Lock/unlock user accounts
  • Monitor server security
  • Monitor special services etc

Most important skill to a system administrator

Problem solving, period. This can some time lead into all sorts of constraints and stress. When workstation or server goes down, you are called to solve the problem. You should able to quickly and correctly diagnose the problem. You must figure out what is wrong and how best it can be fixed in small amount of time.

System administrators are not…

  • Cookie cutting software engineers.
  • Developers.
  • It is not usually within your duties to design new applications software.
  • But, you must understand the behavior of software in order to deploy it and to troubleshoot problems, and generally should be good at several programming languages used for scripting or automation of routine tasks such as shell, awk, perl, python etc.

    * Morning checks of systems/software.
    * Performing backups of data.
    * Applying operating system updates, and configuration changes.
    * Installing and configuring new hardware/software.
    * Adding/deleting/creating/modifying user account information, resetting passwords, etc.
    * Answering technical queries.
    * Responsibility for security.
    * Responsibility for documenting the configuration of the system.
    * Troubleshooting any reported problems.
    * System performance tuning.
    * Keeping the network up and running.

          1. Hi Preeti, Admin jobs are good for men and not for women. Yes, they do have shifts. Better you can prefer some ITIS domain. That will be good and also in some project there will not be shifts.

          2. ofcourse,it does not mean for a particular gender. if you are intrested in this stream,u should go for that.

          1. Assalaam Walaikum! Brother Ayyub, i am new in but i have 7years of experience in zaki & associates and system administrator related projects, i recently worked with scantech info system as a tech support engineers . But i don’t want to mess with my career working under different processes every time. i have to choose a permanent domain, and i chosen system administration, i am also SUN certified SA1 in 2008, now i am practicing on Red-hat and Solaris 10 again. i need you suggestion what why i can start my career from starch as system admin. no matter Ll 1 or L2. can i try? currently i am jobless and surviving on my little savings! Insha Alla every thing will be alright with ever one.

        3. I agree, Wipro is not a place that promotes or encourages women in networking positions, in fact they will do everything possible to get rid of you if they feel they have to hire you to fill a quota. They don’t like minorities either, at least in the US; They have an extremely high turnover for all their employees in the networking fields, get out ASAP if you are there.

          1. dear shadab, am also wrking as sys admin in govt office,kanyakumari dist,
            and am B.E computer science,but fresher,am facing lot of problems related systems…. give ur mail id brother.

      6. its good because, in this days there is the isue gender equality. Therefore, all us need to worker, without favouring either side, again you went to take that cause there be thankfull in that you got the best employed, never mind wheather its a shift or a non sfift job, count the reward that you get,,,,,, ….

      7. This job is not correct for you , better to take some other good course and work on that

  49. Seeing questions like these and have them coming from people who say that they are system admins makes me realize why I constantly have them call in to our center. I’m tired of these so-called admins freaking out because their server went down due to an ecache event. Yeah it happens doesn’t mean you need to replace hardware. I actually had to explain to someone that he didn’t need to replace his DVD-rom because it have hard errors on it. Seriously. But that isn’t what bugs me the most. I have put in multiple applications to firms for the system admin job only to be told that I don’t have the experience that they are looking for. Really?!? How are these people getting hired?? You want the info handed to you then you will not make a good admin. The internet is your best friend. Join some forums and read and learn from others mistakes. Set up a network in your house and just tinker. This is how you learn. And don’t make it just a Windows network or a Unix network. You will not find one in the work world. Mix it up. Toss in a couple flavors of Unix and Windows and you will find that you will learn all you need to know. Don’t just read about it. You don’t tell people that you visited Antartica just because you read about it in a book. So don’t tell people that you are a system admin cause you learned about it in a book. It actually takes doing it.

    Good luck in your future endeavors!!

  118. Hi IT Guys,

    System Administrator job is not only job its a challenging Job that mean you have job plus you have a critical responsibilties too. If you have Servers managaement skills and you are confident on managing High Availablity and Service lavel agreement then you are good administrator no matter you are male or female. If you are thinking about shift then I think servers and networks can rise problem any time and you have to available for resolve that isssue. Just because no one can take a look on your problem as other profession does. So I think If you are a good problem solver and can take responsibilty for the position I think you dont have questions for the same. I suggest to fresher take a look on ITIL and CBT Nuggets or trainsignal learning videos. that will help you. also have a look on Service desk manage engine.

    Best Of Luck Guys

    1. Dear Prashanth,

      Yeah it is possible to keep both operating system (XP & 7) at a time. I recommends you to save all your data first and then install Xp first and 7 later in separate partitions.

      Make sure, if your Lappy or Pc have “win 7” sticker then it’s difficult for you to find out the drivers for your computer.

    1. not at all, education is just for knowledge, and degree is just a need and formality to get in to professions jobs, the real employer need the guy with technical stuff, don’t BA or B.com regular or distance you will get a good job soon. by the time you became a good administrator don’t dream about wide organizations! what ever comes first get it 1st .

    Can anybody tell me what is the role of a System Admin in a Hosting Company?


    Ankur Vishwakarma

    1. there is nothing to tell you! its all about how many systems you’re managing and what daily tasks you’r performing? make a regular not of you’re work and dig in google what that comes under !

  150. hi everybody ,i m a btech in electronics& communication from bhubaneswar,m confused about the questions asked for system admin,so please kindly suggest for which courses i should go?????

    1. sadly you have to spend 5 to 8 hours on google and search and collect every information and you you’r self have to make one detailed document to understand it!
      revise it take two old systems practice for few mounts may be 2 or 3 months! then you will be able to answer you’re self! fi you need any technical instruments tell me i will tell you where you will get them!

  151. hello, i am sandhya ,i am MSc in computers ,write now doing my JCHNE in jetking , i want to do IBM IAX admin please suggest me a nice Institute in hyderabad

    1. Hi give me your e mail id i send some basic concept of AIX after you learn center

      my mail id is :yoguin4i@gmail.com

    2. haha. Hi sandhya, i am just suggesting you, you’re already done a computer and networking course for jet-king, and now you’re routing to system admin.. well its a spiting way, if you wanna be a network admin you must do practice more in you’re lab and search for network admin job.. if you want to get in to unix administration it means you’re already wasted you’re time in jet-king.. anyway the best institute for AIX in hyderabad is Root Shell technoligies ameerpet.

  152. hii my name s chaitra..i hav done bca…i want t knw wats this admin job…can anyone pls tel me about this admin job…my frnds said its very risk job….dint get job still…i wanna job in admin field….

    1. Hi. you’re message seems to be very week, and its reflect you’re confidence!
      well its not like that, a girl or guy any one can do system admin job. there is nothing you have to lift servers and computers on you’r shoulders, its just you have to be very sharp and active you don’t know when the network and services are sucks, so what yoganathan means to say its a quit responsible job, its not like you have done a coding and quality team rejects it and sent you back for fixing. its like you have to take right decision on the time. its like in our out business! but no company will give you server direct in you hand to play it. they will teach you every thing ! i can say try it .

    2. i am also B.CA .. after that worked in BPO Similarly finished MCSE and CCNA . now i got senior system support for in the same company

  153. Hello sir,
    i am from aurangabad, maharashtra.

    i am fresher, any one please suggest me a job in system admin field in Aurangabad city
    Plz reply me email:

    1. Hi alok.
      getting a MNC job in Aurangabad for now its not possible, because there are no MNC software companies in you’re city, but you can contact CMC or CMS in you’re city branches they generally hire people on contract basics and keep them in banks and govt organizations, as system admin and service engineers. if you’re ready to leave you’re city the best place for you try in Pune.. there are good openings for you! God bless you friend.

  154. hai…

  318. So, “problem solving” is THE skill you think a sysadmin need… well, I think that is the skill systems TECHNICIANS need, NOT systems administrators. Sysadmins “must have” skill is “problem elimination”, or if you prefer, the skill to make things work like a charm without any technical problems, or at least minimize them to the minimum, planing programming, and ADMINISTERING your servers and resources to reduce the incidences and down times to the minimum possible, a PROACTIVE work. That is our job. If you think resolving tickets, repairing problems, and obey orders is your job, then you are a bad sysadmin. period.
