Pretty self explanatory. Every network department has to deal with incompetent app teams blaming the network every time they have bad code, their server is pegged, a non-internal Internet site is down that we don't control, etc etc. Anybody have any unique stories on how you deal with this? Any outlandish attempts to blame the network?
At my company we have a running tally in my cube on some paper entitled "Not The Network". Every time a ticket gets routed to us that tries to blame us that isn't our fault gets a tally. We're averaging about 25:1 so far.
Also had a app team has us of the firewall modifies packets….. that was a fun one.
