Late Night in the Server Room

I'm sure I'm not the only one who gets a little scared when updating IOS on Cisco routers. One bad turn could make a late night even later! This is especially true when it is a remote site. Tonight I upgrading the IOS on 3 of our 4 routers including our core router. I have had the newest IOS running on one router for a few weeks now with not problems so I decided it was time to take the plunge with them all. This release will give us some new features in the NetFlow area such as Top Talkers and Top Protocols that will help us manage our bandwidth better.

Oh, to make the night a little more nerve racking I am expanding the partitions on our main file server after adding 3 x 300 GB SCSI drives last week. I'll post how it goes when it's done. It takes a Looooooooong time!
