Device Repair & Troubleshooting

Troubleshooting is a form of problem solving, often applied to repair failed products or processes on a machine or a system. It is a logical, systematic search for the source of a problem in order to solve it, and make the product or process operational again. Troubleshooting is needed to identify the symptoms. Determining the most likely cause is a process of elimination—eliminating potential causes of a problem. Finally, troubleshooting requires confirmation that the solution restores the product or process to its working state.

In general, troubleshooting is the identification or diagnosis of “trouble” in the management flow of a system caused by a failure of some kind. The problem is initially described as symptoms of malfunction, and troubleshooting is the process of determining and remedying the causes of these symptoms.

Data Management, Backup, & Recovery

Backup and recovery describes the process of creating and storing copies of data that can be used to protect organizations against data loss. This is sometimes referred to as operational recovery. Recovery from a backup typically involves restoring the data to the original location, or to an alternate location where it can be used in place of the lost or damaged data.

1. Keep at least three copies of your data

That includes the original copy and at least two backups.

2. Keep the backed-up data on two different storage types

The chances of having two failures of the same storage type are much better than for two completely different types of storage. Therefore, if you have data stored on an internal hard drive, make sure you have a secondary storage type, such as external or removable storage, or the cloud.

3. Keep at least one copy of the data offsite

Even if you have two copies on two separate storage types but both are stored onsite, a local disaster could wipe out both of them. Keep a third copy in an offsite location, like the cloud.

The 3-2-1 backup rule is a best practice because it ensures that you’ll have a copy of your data no matter what happens. Multiple copies prevent you from losing the only copy of your data. Multiple locations ensure that there is no single point of failure and that your data is safe from disasters such as fires and floods.

Network & Connectivity

Network connectivity is also a kind of metric to discuss how well parts of the network connect to one another. Related terms include network topology, which refers to the structure and makeup of the network as a whole.

There are many different network topologies including hub, linear, tree and star designs, each of which is set up in its own way to facilitate connectivity between computers or devices. Each has its own pros and cons in terms of network connectivity.

IT professionals, particularly network administrators and network analysts, talk about connectivity as one piece of the network puzzle as they look at an ever greater variety of networks and the ways networking pieces go together.

Ad hoc networks and vehicular networks are just two examples of new kinds of networks that work on different connectivity models. Along with network connectivity, network administrators and maintenance workers also have to focus on security as a major concern, where the reliability of networking systems is closely related to protecting the data that is kept within them.
