Interview Questions for NW Admin Position

I just got flamed for posting this on the NW 6.5 admin forum (my bad) so
I'm reposting here:

We are going to be interviewing candidates for a senior Netware
administrator position (CNE or highly experienced CNA level) and I was
wondering if anyone out there may have some good questions to use for the
technical interview. I've come up with some myself but I'm not too proud
to use someone else's ideas. I looked on the web and found examples for a
Windows, Linux or Cisco admin interview but that's about it. Thanks,

-Chuck, CNE6

Re: Interview Questions for NW Admin Position

oh puh...flame...no masking or anything, what a disappointment...that
was the weakest flame I have ever seen...

about your question...

What type of roll are they going to be filling? A true admin? or like
me, a jack of all traits...backup, security, helpdesk and the like...

Re: Interview Questions for NW Admin Position

Unleavened, bannock and soda breads usually don't have yeast.

"What's your favorite color?"

"Do you ever have cocktails in the morning? Mind if I do?"

"Do you think I'm handsome?"

or...how about:


"Why don't you ask yourself a question?"

Not surprised...

First I'm told my question was not "support related" so I can't post it on
the NW 6.5 Admin forum...so I repost on Chat. I should have known better
than to expect any serious answers from a forum with "fun" in the title.
Obviously if you don't know our specific environment it's tough to come up
with specific questions. I was just looking for suggestions on general
NetWare/eDir admin and troubleshooting questions. No problem, I put
together a decent (IMHO) technical interview question list.

Guess a company looking for a Netware admin is a rarity these days so I'm
not surprised. We talk to recruiting firms and get answers like "Novell?
Are they still in business?" We bring in new people for the I.T. support
staff and they see a Netware Client on their screen. "Wow, I didn't know
anyone used Novell any more."

-Chuck, CNE2,3,4,5,6 (that and $4.50 will get me a Starbucks)

P.S. I'll be in a more jovial mood Monday if the Giants win...

Shows how little they know really 😉 Anyway, google for those CNE
Quizzers that are out there and blag their questions?
