Do NOT deploy, if network admin is not at work

A client wanted to change database server and has arranged a suitable time to do so. Someone incharge at client end did the database migration. All applications now needed to point to new database server. We have updated the config settings for all 16+ sites. We then realised that web server cannot comminucate or ping new database server. We were able to connect from other machines. We called up client and asked to arrange for network admin to fix this issue. Client said “He is overseas today”. Usually he is, but not today.

So…. what happened?

trans.Rollback();

Do not deploy, if network admin is NOT around. Always check with client that network admin would be available if required, just in case.blockquote>
