Re: Congratulation to HP

Interesting!

My boss would say that the sysadmin guy is not working at all for last 1012 days!!
Is it under HP maintenance?

Thanks

Re: Congratulation to HP

There's a rumour that HP's Mission Critcial Support Technical Account Managers keep a book on the uptime of their customers systems! Once a year each account manager brings in evidence of the best uptime values, and he collects the winnings....

probably apocryphal, but nice to think it might be true!

Cheers

Hi there.
Is the harddisk large enough for the next patch session ?

Re: Congratulation to HP

Way to go to the little gecko workstation.
I bet there is a drive big enough for the next patch session. Question is, can the 712 handle it. ;)

I'll never get to see that kind of uptime, as we do a yearly cleaning of our systems. :-/

Neat to see.

Re: Congratulation to HP

hmmm, I'm sure we can beat that uptime on our SuperDome in one week time after a reboot. :-)

Re: Congratulation to HP

Just being the fly in the ointment.

How can the box be secure if it hasn't been patched in a thousand days?

There are quite a few security bulletins requiring reboot since then.

Re: Congratulation to HP

Just my $.02 as usual. I'm really surprised how could any system be up for 1012 days without the need of any patches that might require reboot or any other reason. The maximum our HP-UX Server can survive without rebooting is for two weeks. But I reboot it on weekly bases.
I'm impressed.

Thanks.
