Root Cause Analysis:

While renovating a wing of the office the construction company found a lost server today behind a false wall.
It had a 6 year uptime and the monitoring tool shows no issues over that timeframe.
It has lasted through three company merges and multiple tech service agency migrations.
The entire time it was completely pingable, accessible, and running without a single person knowing where it was.
Nobody really considered it lost but it was the only hostname in the Master Server Document without a rack and location.
