    Re: Job Interview Tips & Advice

    Well done once again - sorry, on a side note, what professional qualifications do you have? If you don't mind me asking.

    Cheers

    Oh, good luck for Monday's start!

    It's not a bad route to take - I did the same. Although I did complete my A Levels. Now currently studying for the MCSE - would like to then move onto the CCNA.

    Hope you like the new job.

    I did the same, finished at 'A' levels, got a job and worked my way up to where I am now and hopefully beyond in the future! Also thinking about some professional qualifications at the moment.

    There is a user called Joe Black who is complaining that he can not access the files in the share ‘server1\staffonly’. Give him access to the files and explain your actions.

    I didn’t think the task was that hard but not one of the candidates could do the task. It makes you think!
    I prob. will make an arse out of myself but is this one way of doing it. goto the staffonly folder, right click, properties, make sure everyone is allowed access to the share permission. in the ntfs permission, add joe black to the allowed users, and give him the neccasary right (full control, modify, etc.)?

    Semi correct

    While correct would have given access better way (maybe this is what you are getting at not quite dictated it right)

    Check file to see what user groups have access say there is group there called "staff users".

    Then make sure joe black is part of the staff users group.

    Key here is that it is staff only and if did it for each user could have lot of users so using groups is better option.

    Also you get bonus points for saying that would check to make sure that user is a staff user.

    yeah thats sort of what i was getting at. but i thought we are only dealing with joe black here. say joe black is a member of group called "a". theres another user called joe bloggs whos also a member of the same group. u dont want joe bloggs to have access. if u add group a to the allowed users, you have given joe black access but also to joe bloggs.
