Bloody Hell! What a day! First I kill the database server by inadvertently yanking it out of the rack and away from it's plugs when removing the old fileserver from the rack - DK saved the day there. Next the backbone switch for the entire project went bonkers after the server upon which it had been resting - the same old fileserver - was removed (see above), resulting in a small torque upon the switch chassis. I propped the switch up to relieve any torque, rebooted it and all was well. The group would be better off paying me NOT to come to work! -KEL
