Any particular instructors?  I find it hard to believe
that someone who is an instructor at SANS would
endorse tools like inzider.  But I do know other
instructors that are pretty darned good...Jennifer
Kolde, for example.

Which ones?

I agree that would be a good way to break the ice, but
from a professional standpoint, I don't think it's a
great idea.  In the real world, rebooting a Windows
box isn't the first thing you should be doing.  I
might be concerned that with such a question, that
might give the candidate an improper impression of how
the company conducts itself.

The rest of your questions are good ones to ask, but
again, for Robert, I really think it depends on what
sorts of services the company plans to offer.

Keep in mind, though, that depending upon the
questions, what's 'right' may be subjective.
