The problem was that the relay would only shut if the box lost power or if it received a software command to disengage. We had numerous problems where the packet processing engine would become overwhelmed and lock up; the relay stayed engaged because the box retained power and the software driver was rendered useless once the whole OS locked up.
Maybe it's just me, but when a vendor is concerned enough about their box failing that they work out these elaborate bypass options it doesn't inspire a lot of confidence in the stability of the product. IMHO, wedging a 99.5% available piece of hardware between your 99.99+% available network hardware is just bad karma.
