HVAC are now being powered up. Things should be up sooner rather than later. I am heading to bed to watch a movie.

Happy Geocaching tomorrow everyone. Wink

Actually this may be a good idea if I visualize it correctly.

Everybody is waiting for the various building generators to start one by one and then lastly the servers will be started in some sort of sequence so as not to overload the system. We all know that current draw is highest when you first turn the servers on and then the load tapers off.

However, you can get a jump on the situation and take yourself out of the sequence by hooking up smaller generators on the opposite side of the UPSs as your own servers. Start up the generators and now you can start the servers. Leave the generators running as long as possible and the UPS batteries will at least partially charge.

Now as long as the Honda generators are well ventilated you can let them run until everybody elses servers have started from the main power. The building should now be running on the building management's generators. Power down the Honda generators and immediately plug in the cables being serviced by the big generator to your UPSs.

You now have your servers running ahead of everyone else. You didn't worry about where in the sequence you would be allowed to start your servers. The load to the main system is minimized as far as your equipment is concerned.

So far, it looks like they have a 2 hour jump on the rest and counting.

I guess they could have done this 12 hours ago but then I would guess there wasn't enough ventilation for the Honda's exhaust.
