I am a developer.
Our environment team is practically retarded. I have to go on-call during DR tests because it is too complicated to restore an image and double click an icon.
God forbid they have to install a App Server, or configure 35+ JBoss instances (default is 1 instance per box) to start, tune for memory usage or performance or both, etc.
Just last week they decided to upgrade the os to 2008R2. no need to test anything right? Sure all of the code is 32-bit but that wont have any implications will it?
Trust me I would much rather not have access to prod, but as the saying goes "Better us drunk, than them sober"
