    Re: Christmas Shutdown

    Having in the past shut the entire system down and then sat there rubbing the lucky rabbits foot (not lucky for the rabbit) hoping that everything comes back on line which it does not always do, We will be keeping all servers and network equipment on during the closed period.

    Even the power costs are worth it here just so that staff coming back into school have a system that is up and running.

    Re: Christmas Shutdown

    I used to shut them down, but then the Head moaned because he came in during the holidays to work, so now I leave it all on.

    I had a scary time in my first year here, when rebooting the only DC a week before the school restarted. Dead motherboard. It was an old server so there was no way of replacing like-for-like. I had a good tape backup, but that wouldn't restore on to a different hardware.

    I ended up buying a new server (we needed one anyway) and rebuilding the entire domain from scratch, user accounts, GPO's, the lot. It took 6 weeks before it was fully functional.

    Now I have 2 DC's in case this happens again, at least I'll have a good working machine with the AD.
