    Red face Rebooting HP StorageWorks MSA60

    Bit of advice <cough> when rebooting and HP StorageWorks MSA60 <splutter> from cold, especially if it's been running for a couple of years: give it a quick vacuum clean first.

    I've just restarted mine (having moved a few mains cables around) and discovered how much dust the unit has gathered in two years. Forgot these units give a good old 10-second blast on the fans when they start up from cold. Thought it was on fire at first.

    Am now trying to hoover myself as I look like a 19th century chimney sweep.
