What does it take to have a disaster? What is a disaster? These are hard terms to describe. You can take the extremes and compare. If everything is working fine then there is no disaster. If the building catches on fire and the computers all burn up then that is a disaster. I guess we will define a disaster as something that the system administrator can do that other people cannot.
