System Administration Online Test
About the test
The System administrator (sysadmin) online test assesses knowledge of setting up computer systems and procedures that keep such systems up and running.
The assessment includes work-sample tasks such as:
- Preparing backup procedures to prevent data loss.
- Configuring virtual machines, servers, and server clusters.
- Setting up the proper RAID configuration for a storage system.
A good system administrator needs to know how to configure and maintain system software and hardware, especially servers, as well as ensure that these systems run efficiently and effectively.

What others say
Simple, straight-forward technical testing
TestDome is simple, provides a reasonable (though not extensive) battery of tests to choose from, and doesn't take the candidate an inordinate amount of time. It also simulates working pressure with the time limits.
