To be clear, the server stopped responding, and the host he is paying for the server has not responded at all. The server could simply be unplugged, or all the network cables were unplugged during the raid. Who knows? I guess "The FBI stole my server is a better headline" though.

In my experience with our leased data center cages, we are expected to fly in to town if we ever need to physically manipulate the servers or even plug things in. The data center employees don't even go into the locked cages.

If the FBI forced open a locked cage, and did stuff in there, I would not expect anything to be addressed until DigitalOne showed up to fix it.

If DigitalOne's people are out of country, a truly evil tactic for the FBI would be to ask customs to reject any reps entry.
