Our relationship with our vendors should not be adversarial.  A vendor should be part of your support system.  IF your vendor refuses to give you the support you need, then you need a new vendor.  Unless you like pain.

I am a stickler for keeping track of things. And as I get older I don't want it to be my brain. We sometimes have mini-clusters that are not in the cluster room, and I build an id tag for these nodes so we know who is responsible for them.  Someone is always holding the bag for these puppies.
