You want to know a ****** weekend?

Had scheduled maintenance on one of our servers for yesterday. Was planned to start at 8:30am yesterday morning and be finished by 10:30am yesterday. We turned the server (DL380) off to configure the ILO. With that we were upgrading VMWare from 4.0 to 5.1. There were 2 failing hard drives on separate RAIDs, this should be no big deal. Upon turning VCenter on we noticed that 4 servers were not present. It did not recognize that the servers were ever there. What was supposed to take 2 hours has now taken 14 hours and counting. Good times.
