Recently on a routine scan, one of the results included the advice
"rewire the server room" - can anyone shed any light on this - Ive
looked through the source, but cant find it

If your server room (cabling) is such a mess that you can no longer be
sure that only equipment belonging there is inside - and that you know
what each cable is being used for, then it's a good idea to do a
thorough clean sweep.

It is good practice to un-patch all unused cables and systems (sans
fixed structured cabling, of course) and occasionally check that there
is nothing hidden under the raised floor or in racks that does not
belong there (water, rats, network sniffers, WLAN routers, ... - don't
laugh, I've seen all that).
