Didn’t Plan on Working Tonight

I ended up having to do a little work from home because the servers I was going to work on today (Friday) were still being built when I left. My part was pretty quick but while I was in, I noticed that a snapshot backup had failed on one of our more critical servers. Well, I’ve been working on that for the last three hours. I think I got it fixed, just need to test a few times. Anyone in IT knows that backups don’t happen quickly. Fortunately, these are snapshots so, it isn’t so bad, but the verification process on 100+ gigabytes of exchange databases can take a while.

This means that my day with Andrew tomorrow will probably be a little more boring than normal, since I will be dead tired.
