some lessons need to be learned twice

I used to ziptie in all the power cords to the servers, so that you can't pull the power cords out by accident.  Because I had accidentally unplugged a server.

Well, several years later, well, I don't put zipties on my power cords anymore.  so, tonight?  I slid birds/stables in... and disconnected Gladwynn. 


I need to have a new power cord retention policy.  Ouch.

A friend recommended apc locking cables; apparently they help some even when the servers do not have locking receptacles.

Going to also recommend those APC locking cables. We have been using then for a couple of months and so far... no whoops moments. Trying to convince the other teams to go forward and use them and set a standard throughout our DCs
