    Re: Coffe in server

    Odd noises are almost certainly coming from the fan - the tiniest amount of dust on them can cause them to spin badly and therefore make a noise.

    @TechMonkey - very good advice re. the photos, that way you know how to put it back together again. I now always draw diagrams of mainboard jumpers, after learning the hard way and having to crack a second computer open to compare!

    @Tech_Guy - did the LEA engineer finish the work? If it had been me, him spilling coffee at the very start would have been the point at which we was escorted off the premises...

    Maybe he's electrocuted himself......whoops!

    Still thinking this might be a wind-up posting......

    @NickJones - well he doesn't come here any more so does that answer your question?

    Re: Coffe in server

    Maybe he's been fired for spilling coffee in a server and then taking it apart without telling the network manager.........

    But I don’t want to start taking the server apart as I don’t have a clue about them that well.

    Could it be damaged?
    Coffee in the server i know i know it's serioouuuusssss.

    But seriously serves you or one of your half-wit colleagues right for drinking by the servers. I once ate a packet of those mini jaffa cakes while I was working behind the server racks in my previous job. But a few crumbs is very different to a warm drink.

    IS that not a fundemental part of being an ICT Tech ?
    Just what I was thinking, one of the perks of the job isn't it? Anyway, whats the basic difference between a PC and a server...not a great deal. Get the screwdriver out quick before someone else beats you to it and has the fun. Oh and yes, turn the power off, look inside first before even thinking of powering back on. If it wasn't your cup of coffee, enjoy the panic of people running around like headless chickens because they can't get to their files etc. while you have fun taking it apart and slowly drying it out :-)

    He's probably (should have been?) sacked.

    Oh, and it won't take a week to dry out...

    I get people using servers as coasters.

    THEY ONLY DO IT ONCE. :twisted:
