Shouldn't this post be in the "AWW YEAH" thread?

My rant of the day: 

1. Broke my Red Hat Satellite server with a major release version upgrade attempt, worked with support and ran out of time to finish troubleshooting before our last maintenance window. Team agreed it was probably better just to restore from backup, resync packages, update content views and call it done. 

2. Our backup and recovery team not only had us in the wrong backup policy, but also had our only backups going to AWS S3. It took over 9 hours to pull down.

3. After backup and recovery team restored it on their vmware cluster, they attempted to migrate it. After an hour and a half the migration was only at 31% complete. I had to cancel the maintenance window and get an earful by upper management about it. By this point it was midnight and told them just call me when the restore migration is complete and I can log into my shit. 

4. After all that time, it failed at 90% after 7AM. They told me they would restore and migrate it a different way. 

5. About noon they tell me the server is back up. I log in, try to do the thing, server still fucked up. They ask me if I want to try the restore again and I tell them to fuck off and let me handle it. 3 days later, I have it fixed.

6. The kicker... talking to someone who double-checked the backup team's work, they not only downloaded the VM snapshot from the wrong date from AWS S3,  but they also used the most recent backup to restore, not the date we requested.
