Wow, I'm in the Computer Room and a user that attaches via TCP/IP comes in and says "What's wrong ?" and I said "What do you mean" and checked a terminal that was fine and the panel on the AS/400 which was fine... The phones start ringing off the hook. I sign on and see: Line ETHERNET01 failed. Automatic recovery started. and * Ethernet line ETHERNET01 failed on resource LIN09 and I thinking WHAT the heck happened. And ALL 9 remote sites and every non-terminal user in this building have failed... I go over to the equipment rack and see that the TSU/DSU/CSU and routers have no power ! I start looking around (and I inherited this mess mind you) and an AC Adapter "brick" had fallen off of the rack and landed on a power strip, down on the floor and hit its' off button ! Turned the power strip back on. Ending TCP and restarting it got everyone rolling again. What fun - not. And of course I have had a "personal project" for over 3 months to get rack mounted power units to REPLACE these stinking power strips that my predecessor was so fond of (there are about 5 of them all attached to one of 2 UPS's). And of course everything else kept getting in the way. Well guess what I am ordering NOW ? ! Everyone (that celebrates it) have a Happy Thanksgiving !
