Trouble Shooting Steps:
1. Establish the systems
2. Identify the affected area
3. Establish what has changed
4. Select the most probable cause
5. Implement a solution
6. Test the result
7. Document the solution
Shared resources take precedence over individual resources
Network wide problems take precedence over workgroup problems.
Departmental issues should be rated according to the function of the department.
System wide problems take precedence over application problems.
Look for simplest problem to fix first
Try different solutions until problem is resolved.
Try to recreated the problem to make sure solution is effective
Keep a complete record of the entire troubleshooting process
