A computer technician performed a number of actions to correct a problem. Some actions did not solve the problem, but eventually a solution was found. What should be documented?

A computer technician performed a number of actions to correct a problem. Some actions did not solve the problem, but eventually a solution was found. What should be documented?

  • everything that was done to try to solve the problem
  • only the solution, because this solved the problem
  • only the failed attempts, so that future technicians will know what not to try
  • a description of the problem and solution
    Explanation:

    Everything that was done to solve a problem should be documented, including failed attempts and the eventual solution. A description of the problem would have been previously documented.
