Mar. 12th, 2013 @ 10:59 pm Going live
Current Mood: nerdynerdy
Tomorrow, I'm visiting a client site to be on stand-by during a go-live of their new infrastructure platform for our product. In the past months, I've been re-installing their stuff on new server VMs and consolidating their platform -- not very sexy, but the savings in hosting costs are tremendous, and the people are quite OK to work with.

Yesterday, the project manager mailed me: "We don't expect any problems when going live. In fact, two months ago someone accidentally activated the new production environment. It happily chugged along in Production for a month before we noticed it."

....right. I'm bringing a book!

How's that for some advance testing? Seems things should be going fine. Enjoy your book. What are you bringing?

Actually, I didn't bring a book. Because you can't be seen 'relaxing' while others are working (it's a large 'office garden'-type of setup there). Instead, I milked LJ, twitter and various news websites.
I did have to do some things, but those were no more exciting than copying a bunch of files from one server to another and set some file rights -- stuff that they could have done themselves too. Oh well, the client was happy, so that makes me happy too.
