Re: What's the most technical task you ever did as part of your job?
The most technical task I've ever had to do as a tech writer was
probably setting up a VMware virtual network to test a DBMS monitoring
/ security tool. I had six separate VMs: Linux running the monitoring
tool, Windows Server running SQL Server, Solaris running Oracle,
Windows running the monitoring tool's admin client, and Windows and
Linux to run test queries against SQL Server and Oracle.
Oddly, the single most difficult part was getting the Oracle client
running on Linux. Oracle's docs were incomplete, so I had to get a
field engineer to help.
