Ongoing Systems Updates
Equipment Received/Installed/Repaired
  1. Compromised machine in MSL - Laurie Brennan noticed it was from 2002 and asked if we'd be replacing it any time soon. There is no forecast to order new machines any time soon.
  1. Public computer config - no word.
  1. AD migration - Web server has not been touched yet. Need to get a statement of work from Dell - they recommend another Del person to handle it. Waiting on bid request. We can't go native AD until the Web server is converted.
  2. AD migration - Exchange server - lots of users have been moved. There are about 35-40 that refuse to budge. They are all old users. Leon from Dell is working with a utility that will take the old user account, create a .pst file, delete the old account - then create a new one, restoring the .pst file to it.
  3. Webmail - May query for domain name. Secured.
  4. Winston has moved the Trouble Tickets and SysRequest to the new address.
  5. Greenstone production server - same.
  6. BBS - same status - Geoffrey is back from Linux training - he can get it running now.
Software Projects Status
  1. New version of SQL - kickoff is Nov 8 in Orlando - the software staff will attend the festivities.
  2. Last week we were waiting on access to a file from Bridges. It turned out to be a very big file. Updates did not run this morning. Address info not updated yet. The file is so large that we'll have to run it during off hours.
  3. Greenstone - UFDC -Mark and Ying to demo tomorrow at the TSSC meeting.
  4. New programmer position - Winston called a few of the applicants. Will interview one of eight. May need to repost the position.
  5. Ephemeral Cities - grant deadline has been pushed back 6 months - that a good thing.
  6. ILL - Winston has been spending lots of time there lately. Michelle Foss is trying to take care of a lot of things that have been on the back burner.
