What happens if your cpu/mobo fries? I would expect any decent provider to repair stuff, at your expense granted, and they may need time to get the equipment (lets face it, no reasonable provider can keep a warehouse of stock to support every colo configuration people might have), but they should be able to do *something*. Ask them what happens if the motherboard fries .
Originally posted by Neo3Net I don't think your colo company would allow an outside source to do onsite repair inside their facility. But then again I could be totally wrong. You may want to double check on that.
If they don't allow people to fix it on site, and theydon't do it themselves, they aren't a Colo company, they are Server Terrorists holding your computer hostiage. Of course they (99.9999%) allow people to fix your server (w/your permission of course).
