Of course, if your application had been deployed in UAT or some other environment with representative security - then you could have worked through the issues on systems you had access to. Instead of futzing around in production. Then your install/deployment would have catered for all of the issues that arose.
I would also ask about whether all of the custom things you did made it back into the systems documentation - so that in five years time when someone else needs to re-install that they know to repeat the things you did to make it work.
Not suggesting that this is representative of your situation - just that there are two sides to the coin. Separation of duties is painful, but sometimes the pain is in forcing the documentation and awareness into the process. Does not sound like they way it worked for you though.
Yep - it's been a messy week. We had a one-two punch with hardware failures and database issues both at the same time. Hardware is sorted out, but database has taken longer and I think it will be sorted after this final update that's currently in progress.
It ran great for years, way too much horsepower for its weight. I climbed mountain fire roads late at night that most 4x4 trucks couldn't pass; unfortunately, I also hammered the entire exhaust system flat doing so. The backfiring led to a clogged carb, and its ultimate demise. Sadly, I traded it in for a Fiat X-19, the single worst vehicle I've ever owned.
On a level road, on a clear, sunny day, the car was a delight. Think Pacific Coast Highway in the Peoples' Republic of California, Ventura to the Oregon border with clear skies and no traffic. Yeah, that was a long time ago. The beast looked so fast, it was always a risk - cops wanted to issue a speeding ticket for just parking it. But on a slope, 45 mph, max. Typical Fiat - Design by Fisher, execution by Fisher-Price. My first clue should have been the sound it made when I opened the driver door - identical to operating a flip top on a cold beer...
