The Accidental SysAdmin Handbook is designed to give new system administrators an understanding of concepts, processes, and technologies that will aid in their professional development. It is assumed that you have little to no experience in a professional information technology environment. While every information technology culture is specific to its parent organization, there are commonalities that apply to all organizations. This book looks at those commonalities and provides a general introduction to critical aspects associated with system administration. It further acts to provide definitions for common computer terms and acronyms.
