Which part do they find problematic, the "single" part,
or the "clearly defined" part? ;)
Both. Two guys have authority over different parts of
a network. They don't agree and neither budges. The
manager is not technical (at all) and is hands off on
decisions like those. I see fights like this in configs
all the time. You look at the configs and go WTF, but
after learning what happened in the past between those
two folks I go; "Ok, NOW I get it."
And for 'clearly defined'...well...to put it politely
'clearly defined' is subjective. ;) I'm OCD about
KISS, documentation and consistency, but many folks are
not. They want it their way, regardless of what is
already there, and they like to turn knobs and not let
others know what knobs they turned.
You wouldn't believe what we see out here on the
raggedy edges of the internet. I started my career in
the 90s with a company called Digital Island. There
were extremely competent folks building it. Every thing
was KISS and consistent. It was a beautiful DFZ network.
I miss that. 2001 was the last time I saw it. Been on
the ragged edge ever since.
