Still no laptop. The store says “this week”, and they had better mean it.The training course I gave is over, without major incident. The main problem is that I was seeing things on the slides that
- I wasn’t aware of, or
- I don’t agree with.
A typical example is the order in which you start up a SAN system. Since the Switches may be used for other SAN functions, like disk storage on critical servers, you don’t go switching them on and off willy-nilly. It’s fair to say that they are the SAN, or at least its backbone. One of the slides advocated taking them down as part of the process of starting up the backup systems. Well, if you deliberately crash a critical server by disconnecting it from its storage, you should keep a backup copy of your CV or resumé at home. On paper, since you can’t be trusted to operate a computer.
