Dead LAN's hand: IT staff 'locked out' of data center's core switch after the only bloke who could log into it dies


I smell a rat

The deceased either knew the writing was on the wall so came up with a scenario that meant if he got fired he'd have some satisfaction from the shit-storm he'd leave behind or knew someone didn't like him and was trying to make it impossible for them to get rid of him.

I've worked with people in the past who were actually very good at their jobs but were constantly being bad mouthed by management. This was often when a PHB thought they knew everything (often loudly) and the colleagues were constantly being forced to prove them otherwise to the PHB's boss.
