Setting up a technical test for a candidate.

Hi guys

I'm working on putting together a technical test to help a colleague in another country in their recruiting process. The candidate claims to have had 9+ years working in Microsoft environment based system administration, maintenance, troubleshooting and support of data centers. This in itself is rather vague. They do claim to have had Level 1, 2 and 3 support in a Windows server environment during the 7years of their tenure.

I've got around 15-20 questions set up already. I was going to ask if it was possible for some of you to throw some technical questions around Active Directory, DNS, DHCP and SAN's. I know this isn't specific to any particular topic which makes it harder. But if you can think of any questions that I could perhaps ask them, then I'll review it. Any help would be great.

Thanks for helping

Thanks Brian. That's what I usually do yes when I am on site as it permits us to see how they troubleshoot and their logic, rather than the correct answer.

So maybe you could use a remote desktop tool to watch what they do remotely.

Anyway as for questions... try and find some sample Microsoft Exam questions and use those as well.

I'd create a test environment and let a regular user have fun with admin's privileges. Mean but tests if an admin has hands-on experience like nothing else.
