The Fuse Blows

My flu seems to be dissipating and I can feel my lungs able to breathe properly again - finally have shaken this bug. I’ve organized with Biodun to meet up in the office around 10ish to continue with the installation.



My flu seems to be dissipating and I can feel my lungs able to breathe properly again - finally have shaken this bug. I’ve organized with Biodun to meet up in the office around 10ish to continue with the installation. The first four machines powered up without any issues – all hardware tests passed and we look like we’re ready to roll. I flicked the switch on the fifth server. Bang! – all the servers powered off, as did the whole IT room. A fuse has blown. Pulled the power cords out of the PDUs and asked Biodun to reset the fuse. All the servers started to reboot. Looks like we’ll need to rethink the power situation in the server room. Biodun called the electrician to install a secondary fuse just for the new rack. Doesn’t look like we’ll be able to power up the rack till that’s in place, sometime on Monday.

For lunch Biodun drove to a little fusion restaurant, we picked up some take out for Adenekan and Esioma.

All the servers and cable arms are installed and servers, as far as hardware goes are ready to go.
