Enterprise or not, theres one in every department...
Hello, iam a graduate engineer and i have an problem with one of the servers. i have no clue of all that computer stuff. i got an error message "Operating System exception occured" what does that mean ? does that mean one of you has to come here and repair the system ?
no, for the first, i need some informations about your server. what kind of server is that and which operating system is on there ?
i dont know. we have three servers. could be any of them.
*sighs* ok. which operating system do you have ?

*deep sigh* ok. who is in charge of your system ?
