You have an operator banging around with PDM?

I'll leave the security concerns aside as I want to address another issue.
No one sits in our computer room on a routine basis. Yes it is a raised
floor environment with a 270, 520 with 3 lpars, 570 with 4 lpars and a few
racks full of blade centers and various winTel and linTel servers. However
still no full time attendee(s). We have a gal that qualifies as
operations. Her desk is outside the computer room. We're having a 35
year luncheon here for her in about a week. However I bet it's been about
a decade since she's fired up PDM, let alone SEU, etc. She changes the
tapes, handles the TSM backups, enrolls people into i5, Domino, Windows
security and a few other duties. There's been a few days she's done work
from home and had me or another physically handle the tapes.

What I am saying is that if we had our operator constantly banging around
in PDM then I would suspect our applications had some serious flaws. Don't
get me wrong, I think PDM is a great tool although I find myself using it
less and less.
