Re: Shutting down the wrong server

We had a KVM that got very confused once, and linked the keyboard to all the servers at the same time.

Our Junior typed in "halt", and all the machines that had the terminal open, at the root prompt, promptly shut down ...

Not the Junior's fault, and it's never happened again, but definitely a weird one.
