I'd wait longer than that. As a case in point, we've recently had a pile of trouble with the telnet server after starting to use named telnet devices. It didn't rear its ugly head until it had been running for a month or better. >Is it normal to run off IPLSRC B everyday ?

Once it's running, it shouldn't make any difference. >How about tape backup management, isn't it a bit risky to take backup >tapes home with you >escpecially when your not keeping them in a safe ? Your security auditor probably won't like that. Permanent archives (month end, year end, etc) should really be stored off site in a secure location that is under company control. For daily backups though, outside of the risk of compromising proprietary information, "home" is not likely to burn to the foundation on the same day that the tornado takes out the plant. We have the luxury of having two plants in close proximity. The backups from each location are stored at the other. In the past however, I have resorted to taking current backups home at night, just to get them off site. Archives at that job however, were stored in a bank lock box.
