Ongoing Systems Updates
Equipment Received/Installed/Repaired
  1. Orders - Will has not had time to address those in the queue.
  1. Meeting occurred last week.
  2. Public configuration status - Library East swamp, MSL swamp and Maps remain. Overtime scheduled for this Sat-Mon. When the team encounters hardware problems, they will just flag, tag and go. They should not spend time to repair a broken machine.
  1. Backup Exec - still problematic.
  2. New anti-virus - killed the updated server. Luckily, we had a backup. We switched the servers out. Will is building a WIN 2K3 server to manage McAfee and security policy orchestration. It should push and install updates and remove the old antivirus.
  3. Greenstone/BBS - still waiting. Won't be happening until Geoffrey returns from vacation.
Software Projects Status
  1. Everything is broke: 3 ILLIAD-related problems. The interface between ILL and Business Services is down. ILLIAD needed a restart this morning and the ISO service did not come back up. Ariel is not working very well.
  2. Chris is working on a project for Access Services - making Electronic Reserves request/submit tool automatic.
  3. Greenstone Loader - very close to being finished.
  4. New programmer position - resumes under review.
  5. Ref Express - transfer of incoming emails -Winston restarted the server and the mail moved to the mailbox, but now they are not moving again.
Web Projects
  1. There is talk of a communications page for the Library Web site - requested by Dale. Content unknown.
  2. Trouble Ticket - licenses on SmathersNT2 - online serials catalog - link in Marc record - page not found. The new server is not finding NT2R. Tom will transfer the ticket to Will.
