I had an issue that I needed a DBA's help with. I went to my go-to DBA (DBA#1), since he's usually been friendly and receptive to my questions. He gave me his recommendation, and I logged a ticket for the DBAs to pick up. Unfortunately, a different DBA picked up the ticket, and he told me we should handle the issue a different way that would be faster (1 hour instead of 6-7 hours) but should be equivalent to doing the same thing. This DBA (DBA#2) is usually considered knowledgeable, so I went ahead and agreed.
Turns out, DBA#2's solution did not fix the problem. I asked DBA#1 about it, and he got irritated and accused me of trying to cut corners to save time. To him, it looks like I just asked DBA#2 to do it a faster way and ignored DBA#1's advice.
In a situation like this, is it better to try to explain what happened to DBA#1 to try to maintain the good relationship I thought we had, or should I just leave it alone?
