Been a while since I checked but if memory serves the UPN is created when the user logs on or something similar.

Nice comprehensive response. The "refresh and recycle" is one that would be fun to ask of servers also; you don't want to be going into a shop where you're spending most of your time nursing ancient servers, do you?

comment How do you know when a Microsoft hotfix has been obsoleted by a newer patch?
True enough, as a hotfix that you need to explicitly request, it wouldn't show (that only applies to regular patches). I reckon you did the right thing by searching on the KB number though, it's what I would do for any hotfix as a matter of principle.

Yes, that makes more sense to me. The obvious correct answer would then be "depends on the software"; whereas a rigid dogmatic answer in support of either to the exclusion of the other would be a warning sign.

I don't see that the open source vs proprietary question matters. The important thing is "do you use the right software that does what you want, how you want?"; whether that be open source or not is irrelevant.

And are they aware that DR is not just an IT problem? A lot of places seriously think of DR in terms of IT alone, and don't have plans for their paper files.

On the other hand, if the answer is "no" you should probably follow it up with "how many others are there?" - especially if it's a top-level enterprise admin job.
