Message-ID: <>'s a Monday......

My damager just DTS'ed a bunch of tables that are critical for our web apps to work back on themselves.  When he set up the DTS he thought he was going from our production box to our test box but did the DTS from production to production.   The problem was that he had the tables be deleted as the first part of the DTS.  At least I know that my backups work.  Had everything restored in about 15 minutes and the web sites are up and running.  Yea, I know it is SQL Server but I have to deal with that also.  At  least he doesn't mess with my Oracle DB's.  Any other Monday stories for today??

While doing some SAN work, one of our intrepid Sys Admins unplugged the wrong cable, crashing 20+ production databases at the same time…..Yeah, it's a Monday…..

So, here I sit, waiting, while they scramble around, re-connecting cables and re-booting boxes…..sigh….I have a feeling lunch will be a little late today…….

At least I wasn't the one who caused the crash…..;-)
