We where doing a major facility upgrade when the election fell into a rack of core routers. Caused us to fail over to our backup site. And hours and hours of work for hundreds of people. It was until the next day and we failed back to primary service did anyone on the non stop conference call asked if the election was OK. No he suffered second degree burns.
But, we got to reschedule or month DR practice. For a weekend I was not on call.
I only had to be available for the big quarterly test and help plan our tests. We did come up with some devilish scenarios. Anything that didn’t get five out of five was practiced again
