      Is the technically correct answer just SSH?

      The real question is why teams are still being forced back to the office. Over half my team quit over this and I quit shortly after having to pick up the slack. Is it really just execs that don't know what the frick they're doing, let alone what actually happens on the ground floor? Do they just read half a dozen op-eds and an unreplicated study on office productivity, then make the call as soon as line starts going down?

            It has nothing to do with what actually makes good business sense and everything to do with appeasing the psychopaths/morons in charge of the big money. Everything lives and dies by the quarter, and if profits can be squeezed out anywhere, even if just on paper to the detriment of the core business, it will.

          It’s not really stealth. H1Bs are sucking billions of dollars of opportunity out. Outsourcing is up 18% to record highs so far this year.

          They always say it’s cheaper but then why are we paying $3000 per hour for 30 Indians…. I could find ambitious desperate college kids with some decent project history for $30 an hour.

        it's a combination of this and those same execs having the majority of their stock in ETFs that have underlying CRE (commercial real estate) and commercial REITS.

        They have to make the commercial property valuable again, and by forcing the wagies back into the cagies, they keep the facade of this property being valuable up.

        You manage Windows servers by RDP (which is way, way faster than VNC) or powershell remote. You manage Linux from Windows with Putty.
        The key thing in most sysadmin situations is being able to work easily with the tools that are available out of the box on whatever target system you're connecting to. That means SSH on Linux hosts and remote desktop or PS on a Windows target. If you have some esoteric uwu special snowflake shit you need installed on any remote server you touch, that shit isn't going to fly except in weird little jobs where you are the sole monkey on the typewriter.

          I'm a dev and I still have this attitude. I keep my vimrc short enough that I have it memorized and outside that I avoid writing config files or using non-standard software because otherwise you just get surprised when things are unavailable/different.

          Also TIL: RDP and VNC are different things. I haven't used either since the naughties.

      Bruh, I USE SSH PORT FORWARDING TO USE VNC SECURE, YOU ABSOLUTE BUFFON OF A moron.
      With that logic, you might as well never use a GUI.
      My server is terminal-only, because I occasionally push it to its processing limits, but otherwise, why make life harder by not having both options available?
      And when you're not sure of everything you need to do, you might as well use VNC, where you have the terminal AND a GUI.
      But I suppose he's referring to "admins" who use TeamViewer et al and never have used SSH before.

        It's wrong to complain about applicants when you're using legacy software.
        If they have experience in other DevOps or Web Servers, then they have a background that would be applicable, and you train them on the specific technologies that the firm uses.
        It's fine to look for someone who can literally jump in right away that has experience with specific technologies, but if that search ends up fruitless, you should look for related experience. Yes, this still a candidate for a senior role.
        However, if it is an entry level position, then you shouldn't even expect that. Not applicable for a senior role.
        Unless the company literally doesn't know how to train new employees on Ansible or Apache, in which case, yes you're right, their old guy quit and they are fricked.

      Yeah kind of funny. The pools are too saturated with applicants for hiring managers and engineers to screen resumes, but at the same time the role requirements are often too technical for HR to provide informed screens. Automated screens can check for buzzwords or content to help HR, but this is easy to exploit by packing in buzzwords or simply lying on your resume, which leaves HR to fall back on social network checks to validate claims, but that can just be completely hacked with bot accounts and follow farming. Then to top it all off there's less money to gamble with and changes to the tax code impacting software developer hiring. Shits cooked and there needs to be some fundamental shift(s) made.

      People who like to do an increasing number of jobs for one job's pay, I guess. I worked sysadmin for SharePoint for five years. Couldn't get my same job at any other company after that because in those five years, every company decided the sysadmin's job was to also do all the development and training.

      If are not comfortable with Linux terminal, you will not be a good Linux admin.

      If Linux administration was just about editing a file every once in a while, it would be fine. However much more commonly you are going to be looking at logs and attempting to locate information that you are not sure where it is.

        If you have the option to do centralize log collection, this might be viable. But no log collection tool is going to accommodate 1000 different log types spread over 40,000 servers.

        To be clear the company that I work for does this already. It is not good enough on the servers that it is applied to, and we don't have the option to apply it to every server.

        Errors and issues on servers often are long tail events which are difficult to capture in generalize programmatic way.

        >Let's ignore your mangled english for a moment, and focus on the bigger idiocy: why would the GUI run on the server?
        I don't know moron. I am not the one suggesting it.

        >Hell, why would you run ANY of your work on the server if not strictly necessary?
        Do you envision a world where Bash is not strictly necessary in Linux servers?

        >Are you really willing to risk stalling all of prod if your bash script ends up a lot slower than expected?
        It is not just static bash scripts. It is about the ability to automate for the sake of transforming data and processing it on a needed basis just by the nature of being in Bash terminal.

        Do you really think bash/ssh is consider obsolete in the Linux server industry and that I am RPing when I say it is not?

        Is that really what you are suggesting? Really?

        Can you name some of these logging tools that make bash obsolete?

        Here's what I'd do:
        I'd have a makefile that generates per machine ".report" files from ssh stdout and make those dependancies of rules.

        So you'd have like a "deploy.$region.report" rule in place of your normal ansible playbook where the output would be some kind of summary of all the rules together.

        Bonus: set up a local ssh config to reuse connections so it's fast.

        tbh a lot of people under appreciate how complex apache configs are. And unlike programming there's no debugger, the thing either works or it doesn't.

        This is why I always punt the "just write a config" tasks for the harder programming ones because programming tasks end up being easier 100% of the time even in languages I've never used before.

        OpenSSH now ships out of the box with Windows, it's pretty cool. I use it to SSH into Windows servers. It's weird because you have your Linux terminal running an SSH session that says C:> but it does work. No install required.

        if they had a proper python api, I'd probably use it because it does implement a lot of useful code for dealing with different bullshit, but the actual yaml totally-not-a-programming-language bullshit is insanely moronic.

          I forgot to add, the biggest problem with ansible is none of the actual modules are actually composable and many times they do stupid shit you don't want so you end up reading their source and copying and pasting the parts you want.
          I have never had a working ansible setup that didn't end up this way.
          on top of that, terraform existing shows that ansible is such a dog, no one wants to use it for IaC bullshit either. of course people still do it, but the code is worse than some of the worst terraform I've ever seen.
          helps that hcl is a less shit lang than yaml and that terraform providers are just basic b***h go shared objects with no special quirks or hacks and python moronation to worry about.

            It seems to be nice to use as long as you stick to toy examples or fairly simple use cases, and don't need anything that the default modules can't do. Once you want to go beyond that it seems to quickly get pretty ugly.

            We're supposed to start using it for everything at work, but it just doesn't seem to be worth it except for things that really need to be repeated all the time.

    I don't get it. I used to be a kid who just fricked around with Debian and then Gentoo like two decades ago and that's what got me my "sys admin" job. Back then you just had to use Linux.
    Then Red Hat came along and added a bunch of moronic arbitrary complexity to the simple job of JUST RUNNING LINUX ON A SERVER and made that a professional requirement. You're still ultimately changing values in configs while calling your installed software "le stack" or other moronic corpo-friendly abstract titles though.
    Now the industry is struggling because it can't find a bunch of people who use Linux and recruiters don't understand what they, themselves, want (ie a pedophile who fricks around with Linux) thanks to the added complexity, turn down promising recruits, get flooded by pajeets and it's the "market's" fault? What did we learn about managing complexity in a bunch of torrented CS lectures, again? Oh right... Frick that noise... Use muh red hat shitware... Where's your obedience certificate, goy?
