and the recording I was able to put together a document with a wealth of
details that I needed. The next day I asked him to review the document and
provide any corrections. Worked great. Then he left and I lived from that
document for the next month while I got on my feet. I never needed to phone

Subject: New dba questions to the former dba?

Hi all,

I just got a new job as a production dba and have already had a chance to
read up a bit of online docs and the documentation (mostly "how-to" guides,
step-bystep instructions written by the former dba). I am planning to get
some additional information from him in a few days and would like to come up
with a list of questions for him as part of the knowledge transfer. So my
question is what questions should I be asking the former DBA?

Thanks much!
