Broken Reset Function on a Server

Since a few days we have problems with a server. It sometimes freezes and the only way to make it work again is to reset it. So a few days ago I got a SMS from the monitoring system that alerted me that the server was down again.

After checking, I noticed that it was really down and I decided to reset it using the Reset service of our data center. I sent the reset request, but the server didn’t come back to life after a few minutes. At first I thought it was completely broken. But that wasn’t the case. Literally the reset hardware was broken, so a technican had to walk over to the server and reset it. That’s murphy’s law I guess…
