According to nearly every User, SysAdmin, NetAdmin and StorAdmin I know: Rule 1: It's the DBA's faultRule 2: You can change anything arbitrarily without telling the DBA, it'll still be the DBA's fault.
Rule 3: Even when the DBA shows exactly where (in another area) the problem is, It still is the DBA's fault.
Developers add:Performance, security and integrity are add-ons, after the fact. When they are needed, it's the DBA's fault.
