In the LHCb Online system we keep systems significantly beyond the warranty period, in some cases up to 7 or more years. We also have upgraded systems in large numbers with third party components (disks for instance). In this contribution give an overview of the various problems we encountered and how we overcome them. We discuss hardware problems, inhouse repairs and related load on the admin team.
