Happy Friday, Veeam Community!
What's the worst reason for an outage you've ever had and how badly did it impact you?
Here’s story that
“When I was internal IT, we had a summer where we kept suffering power outages at our main building, with people keep getting stuck in the lift! One day we had a bad outage, but it was only partially an outage, apparently two of our three phases were dead! So we had a few random plugs around the office that still worked. To get things back up and running we managed to ignore all health & safety and ran a massive extension lead from a working socket to power our UPS and our entire rack! (it stunk of hot metal and I wouldn't leave it unattended for even a second!).
Eventually we found out that the building management had replaced all of the fuses for the building with ones that were HUNDREDS of amps lower than they were supposed to be. And every time someone used the lift it killed the power!
Once everyone found out, the landlord replaced the building management company with a more competent group! ”
