I'm concerned about this link problem, but hopeful that a thorough cleaning of the fiber connections on both ends will put it to bed. Having a flaky link in the central ring of the network is not good.
On the upside, there were no shootings near any of my people. I hope that means that there were no shootings anywhere in the city. But, the local media does such a thorough job of reporting that you never know.
On the downside, the server team is struggling with recovering several message stores on the Exchange server. They (with me there as a tag-along) were adding some additional disks to the server and suffered the mother of all oopses when it came time to initialize the drives. Everything on that RAID controller got wiped -- including the existing 270GB array that had a couple thousand users' mail on it. Eep. When I left this afternoon they had recovered two message stores from tape and were working on a third. Several lessons have been cataloged and taken to heart.
