Yeah, I just asked someone (on IRC, hence the appalling punctuation and
grammar) who I know has recently been through all this, and his response
"Where to start ... moving office is dead easy as long as you do several
the most important, unusually, is checking all the cabling before you move.
does it all work, do you have enough switches, what about cat5 cables, etc
The rest is just a matter of logistics
if your servers are in a wheeled rack, just wheel it into place. It
shouldn't stop working
A comms room just needs two things: Raised Floor and Air Conditioning.
Anything else is a bonus"
good luck with the move :)
