Re: So a dilemma.

"Server down today, try again tomorrow."

"How do you fix a dead server by sharing passwords?"

By trying a different server to which I don't have access because I'm not supposed to need access. I can request a password for that server of course (with the request countersigned by my line manager and my line manager's line manager) which will almost certainly be rejected by someone who won't read / won't believe the reason I give for needing it and with the usual response time of twenty working days.
