likely informal pressure to reduce power consumption. anyways, this
verifies my suspicion that it was a dell problem. in my dealings with
them, you truly have to threaten to send the server back then the
solution magically appears. don't spend time and money playing their
'qualified environment' game -- it never works...just tell them to
there are a number of second tier vendors that give good value and
allow you to to things like install your own disk drives without
getting your support terminated. of course, you lose the 'enterprise
support', to which I give a value of approximately zero.
