Hello all,

I know you probably see this a lot but here's my question/backround. I went to a tech school and learned basic computer networking and information systems I have net+ and MTA: network fundamentals certs. I have been working on a help desk for about 2 years doing basic PC troubleshooting(never worked with servers). My main question is how hard is this for someone who never worked on servers? my plan is to do a lot of labbing if i decide i want to go this path.

My dream job would be to be a system admin, deploying servers, troubleshooting servers and just work with servers all around.

thank you everyone.

    If you have no direct server OS experience then you are not starting from scratch because a lot of troubleshooting PC's carries over to servers, especially physically.

    You will need to lab extensively. It will be a difficult journey but that's why you take it one test at a time; it's metered progress. Nothing in life that's worthwhile is easy so invest in yourself and your future.

    Thank you for your advice, i was reading that the test will include R2 in january, do you think i should wait for updated material to start studying? or should i just go for it now?

    Go for it now and just read the tech net articles on new r2 content that's what I'm doing no time to loose

    The R2 content will most likely be additive and very little derivation from R1 so I agree to start studying now and then review the changes for R2.
