LOL, do they not care about physical access to the server?

I want to see this. So much. No, I need to see it.

Impressive how much you cleaned up that rat's nest too.

Yeah, but I was able to delete a switch, two POE injectors that were pointless, move the patch panels around some, and remove the old barracuda spam filter that was broken.

So you have a boss that is opposed to you doing your job correctly? Wow.

I think you should do what you said and just move all of the stuff that server does onto something virtual in your server room and not tell anyone about it.

Failing that, you could buy a Lack table from Ikea. They're ten bucks and they just happen to be the perfect size for rackmounting things (google lack rack). I have to think that would be an improvement over just letting it sit on the floor. I can't believe your boss is so opposed to your efforts to increase the reliability of something that is apparently so important.

My old sysadmin quit on me to work for espn, so in a rush, they hired on this guy who is great at going to meetings. And great at not saying "no". Completely gutless, lacking any will to improve his knowledge of the job (which is next to nothing), and a complete penchant for throwing people under the bus instead of owning up to his **** ups (of which there are many as i've given up covering for him).

The rest of the time he sits on the phone with vendors while they remote in for him and fix things...or I fix things.

I like to play a game. It's like a race. When he announces he's working on an issue and WILL NOT be disturbed, I see if I can research and fix it before he gets off hold and kicks me out of rdp.

And yes, it does indeed blow gigantic plooms of dust whenever you turn it on when the fans go full speed.

Yes, it is located at a concrete plant, so that was after I "cleaned" it. It gets covered in inches of dust daily.

Yes, it is required for daily operations.

Yes, I asked repeatedly to move it to my server room back at the main office but my boss keeps telling me no...because he's a craven idiot.


When something happens to that rack, you can tell your boss "I told you we should move it to the server room"


I literally snuck it back to the office last winter.

I literally went in after hours, stole the damn thing, went back to the office, deployed it after a cleaning, and got it working beautifully.

When he saw it over here, he freaked and made me take it back. It's like I was forcing an escaped NK national back into the Kim Jong Un's arms!

Their fear is that if our mpls goes down, the plant will have to manually batch.


How is your MPLS safer located away from the server room?

Why don't you tell your boss how useless this guy is?

Or even better yet, document with a video camera how useless this guy is?

He's a leech, he deserves to be banned from IT.
