Dunno if it's just these bleary old eyes, or some inconsistency between the FTP and the TCadmin, but they did not seem to agree as to what was in the crashed.cfg - so it kept going back to Tundra, despite saying Edana, before I finally arranged agreement between them to resolve their paradox. Hopefully not some odd permissions thing, resulting in a mirrored file of some sort, causing the miscommunication. More likely I was looking at the wrong copy, as there seems to be a duplicate of MSC in the server's file tree.
#3 still seems to be down - but my timer ain't up yet.
I don't think I have access to a function to reboot the whole box, but maybe I'll drop a line and see if the keeper of the world's foundations can. On the other hand, this may very well be them fixing it (possibly also the system is deep defragging, and releasing file handles as it goes to get at those sticky bits).
