Training in Networking – Starts!

I just wanted to do my training in networking for various reasons. May be I don't like programming or I wanted a diverse exposure or I like networking or may be some other reason. And now I'm here at WaveNET, doing my training in the implimentations team, which handles the networking part of their projects.

We have finished our first week here at WaveNET and its was a kind of a cool week and most of the guys had less (or no) work to do. Though we have been assigned to projects, we are still learning about the projects and some guys are learning languages, and all are busy with Gmail chat 🙂

Apart from that I'm working on two projects, one is a internal QA Automation System, where Praithees is doing the major part and I'm going to do the system level integration, and give help him out sometimes and we will be working on this with Sumith sir.

Also as I mentioned earlier I'm on the implementation team, which is the key area I want to focus on, and it deals with networking, server installations and stuff like that. Its going to be exciting and I found out that on the first assignment on Friday. I had to install OS on four servers (the rack mounted ones) with the help of some guys there. Then I had to take those to the Mobitel Servers site in Kelaniya and it was already around 6.30pm when we left the office.

It was a kind of a different experience for me. And there were another five guys at that site fixing the racks and other stuff. It was a all HP set-up, including the servers, racks and everything. There we some issues like not fitting correctly. pinching my finger in a rail lock, and problems with network interface bonding. Finally we finished there at around 1.30am (the next day 🙂 ) and came back home in the van. One the way had my dinner(?) also.

Hoping to have more fun and exciting moments while training (& learning) in the days to come…
