In Sharon's dream world of Harry Barker, the Forbidden Server Farm is an embedded data center deep within the castle of Hollerith's School of Phreaking and Hacking. It is filled with racks upon racks of blade-style servers for as far as the eye can see. It is unknown whether or not the existence of the server farm is intended to be a secret, but the fact that Harry and Donald Measly seem to know about it implies that its presence is at least common knowledge among the faculty and students. As the name implies, however, access to the room is strictly off-limits, especially to students, which naturally means our heroes are required by plot to enter.

Harry and Don discover the Forbidden Server Farm after following Dexter's clue to "do a packet trace on the spiders". The trace uncovers the fact that the school network is literally crawling with network spiders indexing every scrap of data on the LAN, eventually leading back to the Forbidden Server Farm. Upon entering, the boys discover Arachnode, a virtual spider and AI construct built by Dexter in his youth. Arachnode provides the boys with the evidence to exonerate Dexter from the recent attacks on the school.
