This issue has been solved. See solution.

I have successfully passed Symantec Technical Specialist assessment of Veritas Storage Foundation 6.0 for Unix with a very good score. I had already passed both sales certifications (SSE & SSE+) of Storage Foundation 6.0 

While preparing for STS assessment, I thoroughly went through all the training videos and the SF admin guide (almost 60%).

Now Symantec has conducted my interview for technical accredition of my company as Specialist partner in Storage Management. Any suggestions regarding how to prepare for interview or which particular areas the interview will focus or some topic outlines that are important from interview perspective.

Any suggestions or guidance will be highly appreciated.

Thank You

Your Symantec SE needs to give you a list of requirements.

Mine was something like this:

  • Provide a Bill of Materials for the following scenario (details supplied by SE)
  • Prepare a Technical demonstration of ... (some examples supplied by SE)
    You need a lab environment for this. VMs are fine.
  • Prepare a Customer presentation (Sample presentations can be found on SymIQforPartners)
  • Demonstrate knowledge of Competitive landscape

Speak to your SE... Ask for details. How can you prepare if you don't know what for??

Good luck!

What do you mean by Symantec SE ??

I think this interview will be conducted on phone or skype, then how can I prepare lab environments for technical demonstrations?

I was telling you how my/our interview(s) were conducted.

We have local Symantec office in South Africa. The Symantec Pre-Sales Engineers at the local Symantec office (also called Systems Engineer - SE)  were conducting our interviews. We are situated in the same city - so, some interviews were conducted at the Symantec offices and others at our offices.

My recommendation to you was: Request detailed info.
