Is it normal for someone with ccie security and have absolutely no clue with Linux and Solaris OS?
I interviewed someone a few days ago for a network position in our company. This person has ccie security but when I asked him how to troubleshoot tacacs and radius running on Linux and Solaris, simple things like running tcpdump, he has no idea how to do it. He could not even interpret the output of tcpdump.
I learned Linux and Solaris during my freshman year in college ten years ago so I assumed that everyone in the neworking industry should have some knowledge about Unix with some shell/perl/expect programming.
Wonder if this is normal of a typical ccie security.
