SHTF, During a move

No matter how thoroughly you think you prepare for a move, moving equipment is always risky. Especially old equipment, that has been running for many years. The last longterm shutdown on many of these boxes was during hurricane Wilma in 2005, iirc. Needless to say there were some problems. Disaster recovery is in play, I get to see how good the plan was, and where things need to be improved. A 6-8 hour move has already turned into 14+. So far 1 Server is partially up, and the second should be recovered tomorrow sometime (fingers crossed).
