Re: How to get my supervision to back off

said by WireHead:

Depends on how good a relationship you have with his boss. With such a crappy horizontal, I myself would not hesitate to bring this to their or the boards attention personally. I don't understand why they would hire him for their technical director he's obviously not qualified. They must not know WTF is going on. You could alternatively remind him that this is not his job anymore. YMMV but I'm neither soft spoken or capable of holding my opinion, I distribute responsibility and accountability very well also. I am however grateful at being good enough to pretty much write my own check. I accept no defect. If it's not right then do it again until it is.

I ran out of storage so I purchased a new SAN with some new servers to run the vsphere 5.1 so that required a new rack due to lack of space in all the other ones. I decided to do a TOR design in this one since it hasn't been done here before, it took me about a week to get it all done but I’m proud it (if anyone wants to see pics I will post them)
You're right they don't know WTF is going on and I don’t believe they care because things are working. I feel that I'm going to have a talk with him along with the other 2 guys about things going forward. But here’s a question for you, can these sorts of bad habits be corrected? The guys that are here have been following in his footsteps sort of.
This is the kind of place where you could get away doing the minimal until you retire but I don't fit that mold.

Here you go i used Velcro to bundle up all the cables (i hate tie raps) named all my switch ports to match my nic's in the vmware world and labeled all the power cords. In my rack the equipment can breath unlike in the other racks, i took one of the other guys in to see it after it was setup and he said "wow that's a nice rack for sure. Anything we've done looks like crap" at that moment i felt odd or out of place.

Fixing all the physical things wrong is easy but the hard part is trying to fix all mental things that are wrong here.

Looks nice and neat but, um, next time open the cage door when you're taking pictures...

i thought i was the only one who labeled ports on a switch (kidding), but i dont see it done enough and i think it is a must.

not only is it good for troubleshooting/identifying wires, but it can be very helpful when you are not on site and need to see what is connected to the port.

Every switch port that is anything other than a client access port should have a description.
