Operating Systems Linux Red Hat Roles & Responsibilities of a Linux/Unix administrator Post 302351707 by pludi on Wednesday 9th of September 2009 09:41:15 AM

In my opinion: experience, ability to adapt to different environments, stress resistance, problem solving skills, willingness to keep learning, willingness to work late because of service windows, maybe ability to speak "manager-speak" (ROI, TCO, business impact, ....)
Personally, i find that a bit of laziness and OCD help (because if you write a script to do that mundane task it might as well run without supervision for the next 2-3 years)
