Here's my personal favourite to spring:


It's 3pm on a Friday, your production OLTP environment is down, every hour down costs the company one million dollars. People are phoning constantly, folks are rushing the hallways, running into your work area and freaking out wanting to know what you are doing, and why it's not fixed yet.
What do you do?

That separates the men from the boys (or women from the girls)

There's no hard and fast answer. That's the point, you either got it, or you don't.

If you can't answer then you should be looking at nothing more than a junior DBA position.

The question has nothing to do with your skill as a DBA. Knowing SQL is but a part of the job.
