Halloween - IT Admin Horror Stories
Post your favorite 'oh crap' moments here!
(Whether they be 100% true. or an exaggerated IT horror story that's taken on additional mythical proportions every time it's told.)
*OS/network/disk failure, virus/spyware/rootkit, even ID10T user error/configuration moments - not a 'my favorite bug' thread.
Props if the situation was solved by deploying Zimbra though :p
look daddy..i can delete :(
My 9 months old son always lies down next to me when I am working. Other day I was logged in using WinSCP (root) to one of our client’s zimbra server (more than 700 users on it)
I got distracted doing something and suddenly I hear big thump and look at my screen, It said "Are you sure you want to delete file ‘/’ ?"
My son woke up from his sleep and hit the delete key on my laptop using his leg..and thank god he did not hit twice ..lol
So now i keep him at-least 2 feet away from my laptop..but i see it him deleting one of my servers soon..just question of time.
