re: Tell me about a time you messed up VIEW POST


I was using PowerCLI to revert snapshots for a block of VMs that I was developing automation for. I use TextExpander to do that snippet, with fill-in fields for the hostname. Wellllll... I got in a rush and executed the snippet with the hostname field blank. That had the effect of running the action on EVERY. SINGLE. VM. that contained a snapshot. I caught it quickly... but not before I had reverted the snapshot for the VM that contained our production instance of Confluence. 😳

Thankfully, the new Atlassian architect had things configured well. We lost about an hour's worth of data, but that's it. We were back online in about 15 minutes.
