don't wake the Hydrogues.

It was the late 90's, and there was a known condition that would arise on one NetWare 4 server. The workaround, from Novell, was to cold-boot the box. So I roll into that data center at 3AM, still somewhat groggy despite a 75 minute drive, walk to the server, open the door and push in the power button. It was at that exact moment that I realized that my finger was on the button of a nearly identically named server (two transposed letters in the middle of the name). Needless to say, I was now fully awake. I then proceeded to do the one-handed-shutdown boogie from the KVM in the next rack.

Same here, but I was able to find the OID for the Air Inlet Sensors on my servers and I monitor those.
