System Administrators encounter all sorts of strange situations through their daily operations. We know it!

Last year's ebook, SysAdmin Horror Stories Vol1, highlighted a few of them. That proved so successful that we decided to produce a second edition this year, and we've managed to gather some more real-life stories to share with you, that are both funny and horrific.

Here's a fresh set of tricky technical situations, terrible mishaps, and messy misadventures direct from the trenches. We hope you'll enjoy every single story!
