    Hi all

    After a barren couple of months of submitting my cv to various agencies and companies I have (at last !) got another interview this Friday for a Senior Engineer/Technical Manager role.

    The company are obviously IBM partners as they mention that on their website which also states "We provide complete portfolio of xSeries servers, from the low-end x206m model to the High-End x3950"

    Now I have built servers and also resold ASUS servers but not had any involvment with IBM kit.

    Any tips/advice/notes or anything I need to be aware of with IBM servers before my interview ?

    Thanks in advance guys (oh and please keep your fingers crossed for me :) )

    Might be worth having a look at Director - http://www-03.ibm.com/systems/management/director/

    This ships with all IBM servers. I used them in my last job a few years ago, IBM xseries and Bladecentre/FastT SAN - nice bits of kit

    Thanks again for the help guys - it didn't get that technical so no worries there.

    Good interview, think I stand a good chance but money could be an issue.

    We'll have to see what happens :biggrin
