Either homework, or you want answers to interview questions. And honestly, these questions sort of answer themselves, if you thought about it for a minute.
  1. An administrators role is to keep the systems functioning. That's it. Whether it's 24/7/365, or 4 hours a day for processing one job, is immaterial.
  2. Whatever technologies they need. This depends on the server(s), their functions, etc.
  3. Being able to do their jobs, and figure out/research simple questions like these.

Linux system administration has a place of its own in the hierarchy of ... services and starting and stopping them takes on a role of its own;
What is the name of the administrator account in Linux?

Hello Tejal,

Please don't ask interview question here. There are plenty of sites answering those. You will know when you are one.
