Am I doing this wrong? (QotD) Even if its a subject I don't know about I try and come up with an answer as its a test of my knowledge. I don't look up the answers beforehand.

Does everyone else treat them like a real life scenario at work where you books online anything you dont know?

No, not everybody :-)

But, if you've been following the discussions on some recent questions you'll note that some people take the prospect of a point very seriously.

I think the honourable approach is to try and answer the question straight away then, especially if you get it wrong. read the given reference and learn something.

But that's just me - people are free to approach the scenario as best suits them. Invariably nobody gets hurt.

Hey, wait a second. According to:

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb510667.aspx

Administering Policy-Based Management requires membership in the PolicyAdministratorRole role in the msdb database. This role has complete control of all policies on the system. This control includes creating and editing policies and conditions and enabling and disabling policies.

So tell me why did I get it wrong?

Some consider it cheating to look up answer but I tell interviewers that I know how to get the information if I don't know it off the top of my head.

One can't know everything. The skill to research and find solutions is as valuable as knowing the answer. If I don't know an interview question I always explain how I would find it. In DBI (days before internet) I knew which hard copy manual had the answer. Today, it's about knowing where to look on the WWW. Of course, in an interview, if 80% of your answers are "I'll look it up", you're not qualified for the job. ;-)

It's more how you look at these QotD's. I don't consider the points to be of value. I really don't care about them. QotD's are a valuable tool to learn. At least to me.

He mentions testing the alert before pushing to production which indicates an on-demand test. Reading further in the link you'll see
"Alert security:

When policies are evaluated on demand, they execute in the security context of the user. To write to the error log, the user must have ALTER TRACE permissions or be a member of the sysadmin fixed server role. Policies that are evaluated by a user that has less privileges will not write to the event log, and will not fire an alert."

Although sysadmin will work, it's not the minimum permission Sad
