Just a quick notice for customers, suppliers and colleagues.
Our office Exchange 2003 server exploded around one hour ago. There was a loud pop and the room filled with light grey smoke. I’m working like the clappers to replace the hardware and restore from a backup image. The power supply unit was 7 years old, which isn’t bad going! (I’m planning to implement a plan of replacing perfectly functional hardware every now and again).
I might even replace it with a new Exchange 2007 server. Watch this space. I will be making a blog post about disaster recovery soon.
