You are informed that a critical server suddenly, and unexpectedly, shut down and started itself back up without warning.  One of the services it hosted was a high visibility financially analysis application that the CFO and CEO depend on every day.  Your phone rings and it’s the CFO asking what happened.  You just learned of the situation 15 seconds prior to the phone call.  What do you do next?

A. Check the event logs.

B. Check the event logs.

C. Check the event logs.

D. All the above.

E. Find a new career.

Believe it or not, a HUGE number of IT “engineers” fail this question in real life.
