I do some consulting on the side and walked in on this today.

I call it "Cable management? We don't need no stinkin' cable management".

To top it off there was no supplemental AC in the room and it was about 90 degrees in there.

Hey, sometimes it makes them easier to trace. Cable management can make them too tight and can be a pain in the ass at times.

Need to get the AC sorted though, nothing worse than a hot server room :)

It'd make the perfect "poster picture" for the WIRELESS theme.

WOW.

yep looks like my place of work too, well maybe we are not as bad but as was said sometimes cable management is too tight on the cables.

Please tell me the cables were LABELED, at least. Where I used to be a Sys Admin, the admin before me connected miles of cable, all the same color (gray), up through the ceiling to destinations unknown... all without labels. That was a nightmare to clean up! This photo brings back unpleasant memories!

My server room looked like that when I was brought on as the Network Admin. I said, "nuh uh"... me and a pc tech went through and cleaned it up all pretty and labeled now. It wasn't that bad though, yikes.

I've cleaned a few messes like this up myself. Unfortunately I'm not the only one working on them, and they tend to get screwed up again after a year or so. I've more or less given up hope. I usually just trace things electronically now. As long as the patch panels and wall jacks are properly labeled, there is still hope....
