The world ends tomorrow (or almost last night)

Just last night we had a major power outage at work.  After the generators kicked on the data canter was fine....until the street power was restored.

When the generators powered down the cut over circuit breaker failed it engage, so the UPS system in the data center

kicked in to do it's thing.  All and good until the batteries start running out.  We were notified and we

headed to the center.....to find that we had only 10 min left on battery back up, plus the AC system was down and the temp in the

data center was 104F.  We found the cut over breaker engaged it and waited patiently for the next hour for the temp to come down to a normal operating temp.

Needless to say we are making some changes to the steps to verify after a power outage.
