When you purchase a physical server - in what format does the warranty come in? I.e. what will the warranty detail? I am new to server purchases but we are looking into warranty of all physical servers - can anyone elaborate on the risks of messing up your warranty or not having any warranty on your server? Sorry to sound naive but nothing I have been involved with before. Do you typically have warranty for the lifecycle of the server - i.e. if you anticipate it will be in operation for say 6 years, do you need cover for those 6 years.
