Well, this is going to be fun. Have a project that's been moving kind of slow because of the various and sundry things going on at work. Audits, our team being brought in a couple MONTHS after the project got rolling (Power BI Server stand up,) etc.
Found out yesterday the servers we were planning to use (fresh install of Windows 2016) were NOT going to be able to be used because there's things that need to be done to get them on the network (infrastructure things, some sort of key management system) that our NEC can't do and hasn't even contemplated doing as these findings changed since they originally stood up the servers.
Then today we find out from the folks in charge of the project, "Oh yeah, hey, there's going to be a grand high muckety-muck coming out in a month who wants to see this in action."
I so sincerely wish we could get away with telling them "a failure to plan on your part does not make an emergency on our part..."
I think then the muckety-muck comes out, I'm going to do my best to make myself scarce so I don't say something to tick off the folks in charge of the project (MY team lead and boss, at least, realize what's gone on with this and are of the same mindset as me.)
