Happy April fools day everyone...
Warning: Do *NOT* try this; this WILL get you fired or worse! I was playing around (on my home server) with the "rendev" AIX command that allows you to rename devices. This got me thinking that you could pull a pretty good April fools day prank with this one by renaming a bunch of devices and then calling over a veteran AIX admin and watch them try to figure out what's going on.... How long would it take you to figure out a system in this state?:
Hope everyone has a great day.
