Stupidest command you can type as a SysAdmin

# /sbin/service network stop

on a remote Data Center server with no immediate onsite help available to start the network from local login.

No prizes for guessing who did this !!!
It was me 😦
One of our boxes was being flood attacked by someone (unsuccessful attempt). I was investigating the box and habit of using tab completion screwed things up.

If that attacker was trying to get our box down… I probably helped him !!! 😦

  2. 🙂 here’s a chance to redeem yourself. you have 24 hours to come up with an english translation for this sysadmin video. any translation. it does not have to be correct. http://sysadminoftheyear.wordpress.com/2009/10/06/win-a-copy-of-tuneup-by-tomorrow/ who knows.. maybe this guy IS saying “# /sbin/service network stop” and while you’re at it… link on over to the Sysadmin of the Year contest and get yourself signed up.
