Chapter 19. Network Troubleshooting > Your Approach to Troubleshooting

Your Approach to Troubleshooting

Troubleshooting is really an art and definitely an acquired skill. Every network has its own particular quirks (just like a used car), and actually maintaining a particular network is the best way to accumulate the information needed to enable you to troubleshoot that network when problems rear their ugly heads.

One way to make troubleshooting problems a little easier is to keep good documentation related to the network. This includes server configurations, network client configurations, and problems that you have experienced and then solved. Even in cases where you are working with a relatively small network, some sort of map that shows how the network cabling has been run and the addressing of the network devices can be a big help in troubleshooting situations.
