    Questions for IT professionals.......(yeah I know I bother too much...)

    Ok, this is for anyone who's working professionally in any of these areas.......

    First off I got these questions in spanish and I am going to have to do a rough translation to English and then back to spanish so bare with me please.

    1) Let's say you're the manager (or head I guess) of the system security department, what should you take into account when assigning passwords to users and/or programmers, and the temporary authorization (damnit my spelling sucks now) to users?




    2) Let's say you're a programmer and you need to execute a program and there isn't any available space in the memory partition to run the program what options do you have? What can you do?
    (I remember her talking about people sharing the same memory in a huge machine and then executing programs from there....)


    3) How do you flush the programs out of a given partition?



    4) Let's say you're a systems "operator" and while running a program some files get corrupted and/or there's bugs in the program which could cause the program to crash, name some things you can as an operator do in this situation, and what risks these measures can cause on the company.

    I am not trying to get you all in a big hurry, but this is due tomorrow morning, I've just been caught up with a lot of work, calculous and etc....so please someone help me.


    Thanks in advance.
    There are some real morons in this world please do not become one of them, do not become a victim of moronitis. PROGRAMMING IS THE FUTURE...THE FUTURE IS NOW!!!!!!!!!

    Make sure they expire automatically when it's only temporary. For safety reasons make them long and complicated enough to be safe but easy enough for users to remember them without writing them down next to their monitor, which defeats the whole purpose of a password.

    2) Let's say you're a programmer and you need to execute a program and there isn't any available space in the memory partition to run the program what options do you have? What can you do?
    Write a more memory conservative program. Or simply ask your admin for more memory, memory is cheap and problems like this stem from the 70s.

    3) How do you flush the programs out of a given partition?
    Not sure what you mean, is this a server/unix specific question ? Or windows Terminal Server ? Citrix ?

    4) Let's say you're a systems "operator" and while running a program some files get corrupted and/or there's bugs in the program which could cause the program to crash, name some things you can as an operator do in this situation, and what risks these measures can cause on the company.
    Contact your support. If you are using their programs in the first place, listening to their support won't be much of an additional risk. Anything else would be a risk that I'd say is too high especially as you as an operator have no clue how this application works and what might be interconnected and cause even more problems when you try to manipulate it.

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.
