Never underestimate your own stupidity
- Apr 24, 2020
I had something like this happen to one of my servers, where the backplane died, and the server would no longer boot with the backplane connected. It ended up the backplane got fried when the power supply went south, so I had to replace both to get the server back up. Your data should still be safe, but you'll need to systematically check what works with various parts disconnected.
