“Everything is down! The whole network!! RUN AWAY, RUN AWAY!” Yes, we’ve all had those terrible days in networking, where no one can get to anything & it’s all up to you to get it fixed. At least management is there to help, stomping their feet, making demands, and whining about the dollars lost per minute of missed productivity.
In this first of a two part show, we swap war stories from the hot aisle, consoled into a blistering sup engine, trying to get enough CLI response to know what to do next. Sharing these tales of bridging loops, power failures, and tokens falling out are John Tatar, Ross Alexander, David Bulanda, Travis Bonfigli, and Daniel Powell. And of course, Ethan Banks and Greg Ferro share in the festivities, commiserating and sharing their own tales of packet turmoil.
