Pet Bugs?

dlgree1 Re:at an old data center I was at.. (1261 comments)

The company I work at had a similar problem with the personal Solaris boxes. Apperently the hard disks had some bad berrings and the company was to cheap to replace them all. This ment that if for some reason the machine was powered off, about 40% of the time, it would refuse to boot. When you called the Help Desk you were told to:

1) Lift the front right side of the case 3 inches above the desk.
2) Drop

This almost always fixed it on the first try. I myself never had it fail to work.
