Re: How to take down a network Yeah a layer 2 loop is it what is sounded like, but I'll be honest I've never heard the term "pocket switch" before.
I work for a big company, so we absolutely require change control and furthermore don't allow "pocket switches" on the network to begin with.
As for your predicament, it sounds like you're overworked and have no support. Welcome to IT. Kidding aside, you can only do so much yourself. Why is everything on your shoulders if you have a team? There's a clear lack of leadership there. I say you have two choices: step up to fill the void, or move on.
