At the other end of the scale I came across a group
who had moved a small IBM Cluster 1350 from building
to building by rolling the rack on its casters down
the corridor, out the front door, across the concrete
and paved paths to the new building, then back up a
few floors to its new location.

They then wondered why they had problems getting it
back up again and why these orange lights had appeared
on some disks in their storage node..
