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

If the admin struggled with the basics of FTP and ESX, then there is a good chance that they struggled with networks too, so I’d expect it to be a factory config plus the minimum required.

As there is only one admin fo the whole environment then the environment can’t be that large either, so reverse engineering all of it should be fairly trivial. Sounds like a nice short term contract for someone in the local area.

Fully agree that an audit and some guidance on how to do things properly is in order.
