Anyone who reads this blog knows I am a big fan of Brocade SAN switches.
But I am reduced to a Friday rant about the crummy sticker they insist on putting over the power inlet when you install them. I am talking about this one:
It is impossible to remove easily. You can quite easily get the sticker all over the inside of the power inlet cavity, including all over the power pins themselves. Here is one attempt I filmed to show just how difficult it is. Apologies for the air handler noise… it’s an occupational hazard…
I am presuming this is a Brocade thing and not something that IBM has added later? Can anyone who has installed a non-IBM Brocade SAN switch confirm? I wonder if someone from Brocade will read this and take notice: Change the sticker… PLEASE!
Update! A colleague of mine contacted Brocade about the sticker who replied that: The label is actually a manufacturer’s mandate from IBM and is not a label we use on other Brocade products.
So apologies to Brocade…. it is all down to Big Blue….
