Thanks to all who replied. I received a ton of responses and most gave
me the sage website to refer to for a standard definition
(http://www.usenix.org/sage/jobs/jobs-descriptions.html). Some even threw
in their two cents and gave me further details according to their own
experience. Out of the responses I received I felt the most important
traits for a SR amdin are:
-Be familiar with many flavors of UNIX (Solaris, HP, AIX, etc..)
-Be able to mentor others in the group
-Be able to plan for the future of the company and his/her LAN
-Be able to handle projects form planning to implementation
I wanted to post a quick question and get a few replies. I was asked the
other day what make a Sr. UNIX admin/Team Lead and I thought to myself what
is it. Is it:
-The fact that you are the most senior in your group so you are just labeled
as the Sr. UNIX admin and team lead?
-Length of time spent working in the field?
-Ability to manage projects?
-The fact that you oversee the jr admin in the group?
I don't know if there is a definitive answer. Granted some will say you
must know the OS in and out as well as the applications/services, etc.
However, I feel UNIX is quite a beast and many "Sr" admin do not know all
these things. Just MHO. Any thoughts?
