A system administrator's job is not easy. He is responsible for the safety and protection of all the servers and computers in an office. He is responsible for keep the computers free of any viruses and make it smooth for all the employees. If anything goes wrong with any of the computers, the system administrator is held responsible. A system administrator's negligence can put a company at a big risk. It is better to go prepared for a system administrator's job. During the interview, the interviewer may ask you some questions all relating to the server.

He may ask you how well call you protect and save. He may ask some of your ideas on how to improve the security. He may also take a small test of you regarding the security of a server. It is very important to stay alert at all times because that is what is required for a system administrator's job.
