I posted this to another list a month or so ago...
We inherited an NT server co-located with Davnet after we purchased another
We went in there on one occasion to find that they had moved the server
to a different rack about 8 metres away over the weekend.
No notification was given of the outage, the machine was not shutdown
cleanly (they didn't have access to do it), no notice was taken to the
fact the that when it rebooted it had a "Some services have not started"
message, nor to the fact they forgot to plug the mouse in when they moved
No, I don't think I'd be co-locating anything with them in the future...
