Early 90s, I was installing a networked backup system at a client. Since there was a UNICOS agent, the sysadmin said "let's try it on the Cray". Install, configure, start a backup, watch the blinking LEDs on the tape drives. Beautiful. 5 minutes later, a bunch of angry VMS-ers came in, asking who was using 100% of the network. Oops.
