​​​​​​​Preventative maintenance is often ignored by Systems Administrators.  Lack of preventative maintenance feed a reactionary environment where there are lot of user impact tickets and operational issues.   Most will not acknowledge that there are a full disk drives on a daily basis when there are already monitoring / reporting applications present in the enterprise infrastructure.   The fact is, when disk space runs out, BAD things happen:

  • Users can’t work
  • Lost work
  • SCCM clients cease to function
  • Patches and Software don’t get installed

There are many reasons why preventative maintenance tasks are typically not  completed.   Lack of time is one of the biggest reasons.  Efficient methods for typical System Administrators to quickly identify and remediate problem areas do not exist using the traditional applications and methods.   Preventative maintenance can be as simple as ensuring that all computers have a certain percentage of free disk space to dealing with complicated SCCM client patterns / issues.

I'm putting this topic out for discussion then will follow up in later weeks then will follow up with some creative methods that I have used to quickly identify and remediate disk space issues in a large enterprise environment.
