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.
