    Re: Coffe in server

    I'd never spill something on the server, mostly because I don't want to slip up when I'm standing on it. That's the trouble with having toner carts on high selves.



    Oh ok, it's not a server we use anymore.

    Our servers have a special cup holder that pops out when you press a button.

    It pretty much sounds like the coffee has dried over the fan, a simple replacement should do it if everything else is booting up OK.
    Incidently milk is THE most disgusting think to drop into electronic components. However, removing them and washing using a fine brush to move the larger deposits then rinsing in water with a little unperfumed basic dishwasher rinseaid should ensure that you get no water stain deposits, (also helps to ensure that the water runs off) DRY THOROUGHLY and reinstall. Boot up and hope that the milk didn't cause a short to fry the component before you worked on it. Doesn't always work but it's worth a try. Working in infant schools presents it's own challenges!

    LOL! I'd always wondered what that button did!

    Re: Coffe in server

    easiest way to stop this from happening....dont allow drinks in the server room, if it was up to me i would completely disallow it here but my managers quite happy to keep someone a cuppa when there, thats what the office is for after all

    I've managed to get all food and drink banned from the ICT Suite, Library and Server cubby hole (not big enough to be caled a room) and everyone abides by this

    Unfortunately the PCs in the classrooms are not so easily protected.

    Similar here - the ICT Suites and Library are food&drink-free zones, as are all the classrooms (excluding the handful of diabetics who need to eat mid-lesson but they stay away from the PCs when eating); office PCs, especially the Staff Room, are a totally different game though - I dread to think what new species are awaiting discovery in some of those keyboards!!
