The Unofficial Unix Administration Horror Story Summary

Introduction

This is version 1.1 of “The Unofficial Unix Administration Horror Story Summary”. I put this together for two reasons:

  1. Some of these stories are damn amusing.
  2. Many people can learn many things about what *not* to do when they’re in charge of a system. As rickf@pmafire.inel.gov (Rick Furniss) puts it: “More systems have been wiped out by admins than any hacker could do in a lifetime.”

This is not an FAQ, but more like the questions that *should* have been asked (and answered). There are success stories, and… well… other stories. I’m certain that everyone can learn something from reading these stories.
