About me


My name is Fredrik Barrud and I work as a Senior System Engineer.

I’ve been working in the IT-business since 1994.
Started my career as a software developer in C on OS/2, Dos and windows.
Changed track to server infrastructure along the way mainly with windows and unix/linux and worked 10 years with System monitoring with IBM Tivoli, CA Unicenter and BMC Patrol.

Started to look at Powershell in 2008 and wrote a few scripts to help solve some problems- Among one was a script for helpdesk personel to create the users mailbox in Echange, this included some graphical dialog boxes and algorithms to calculate which database was the most optimal to create the user in.

Nowadays I write powershell scripts almost daily, mostly to cover some monitoring things.
