Re: Shutting down the wrong server

I'm glad you said this. To this day I meet situations where a label on a box would save, at least time, and probably data loss.

Even something as simple as boxes close to, but not actually on a desk. It's not the switching off that's always the biggest risk either. Hitting the power button on the machine on the desk to the left to turn it on then too late realising that it's the box on the floor, on the right that is the one needed ( that one's screen must have been off or something). And yes, I've done that. And no I didn't notice the tiny green light that showed the power was already on.
