Employee to PHB: "You hired me to provide core network engineering and lead the level 2 network ops staff. Tell me again why you want me to provide any server engineering, if you knew my strengths when you hired me?"Seconded. This is dirt simple to do. If we believe in public humiliation, a list of infected machines and their owners (along with a suitably snarky "don't hire these top network engineers to maintain your fleet of windows boxes" message) could be displayed on the projection screens at the break.
There's a reason I've gotten out of small ISP consulting - I don't do Windows, and I'm getting overrun by Linux corrosion slowly. I route, I switch, I help with securing networks. And I do wear a lot of hats at my day job, but I remind them that they hired a specialist, and promised lots of server support all along the way. Granted, the Windows guy is overloaded and the UNIX/Linux guy would snore in front of his PHB...
