This question was prompted by a comment left on another question pointing to this article.
I was thinking about how that sentiment can be applied to shared resources (servers, etc).
What are some of the ways you've found that work to ensure that when others use a shared server they clean up after themselves?
- Delete files / folders after one time use (after a fix or upgrade)
- Leave the desktop clean of crap
- Don't install software that they can use on their desktop
- Don't create filesystem shares not needed for the solution
Yes, this applies mostly to a windows server environment, in a team of developers + support staff of about 25.
I know there are a few ways to tackle the problem, so what have you found that works?
