It later emerged that the ATO had disabled error reporting
The ATO also did not have a failover rig in place in case of an breakdown because it couldn’t afford one, and was also unprepared for outages.
Even more stupid
the report describes proprietary methodologies that HPE and DXC use to design and deploy 3Par SANs, and that if that information were to be available that could hurt HPE
I can see how that could hurt them if everybody else when decided to use the same kind of methodology and then try the undercut on pricing.
Unless of course the methodology is so stupid it makes them look like a bunch of amateurs. Now that would be funny.
