I love removing unnecessary things from the data centre… old hardware, bad configurations and so forth, but today’s was pretty good. It was a patch that … just shouldn’t have been.
At one end, an F5. The DB9 failover port to be exact.
Then a Cisco “blue console cable”, two intermediary infrastructure patch panels…
And then at the other end, the ethernet port of an APC PDU.
Wonders will truly never cease.
