    Ouch! Definitely glad I am out of the support game because I probably would have killed myself if that happened to me.

    not only did they accidentally reimage the desktop devices, they also got the SCCM servers too. Wow. Beats the previous example i had of a bad deployment.

    I just finished reading that article after it popped up on my Facebook feed. For me, it was ironic because I was just finishing up eating lunch and getting ready to watch some CBT Nuggets videos for exam 70-243: Administering and Deploying System Center 2012 Configuration Manager

    I'm no admin, but it seems it would be easy to do.

    Similar event happened at my job last year. It was a little more isolated and only affected 20-30 employees, still some scary stuff.

    This same thing happened in Afghanistan in 2012 on NIPR @Camp Eggers... almost every other site had to send 1-3 techs up there for 2-4 weeks to get everything reimaged.
