Systems Staff Meeting Notes
February 19, 2007

Present: Thomas Bielicke, Cynthia Bowker, Will Chaney, Logan Clapp, Debra Fetzer, Winston Harris, Bobbie Meng, Mark Sullivan, Stephen Williams
Announcements
  1. Stephen was ticked that Sparkles was mentioned in the meeting notes.
  2. Cynthia saw Stephen and Jane Anne Carey at a Sci-Fi convention in Orlando.
  3. Duct cleaning started today in the north tower. Will is going to try and get us some notification as to when they plan on doing Systems.
Review Minutes of 2/12/07
  1. RIR #1 - Order for 200 new workstations - the quote is being modified. The size of the monitors is in flux. Due to the upgrade to ALEPH v.18, more staff are now requesting 19" monitors - and it looks like that is what we are now going to order.
Ongoing Systems Updates

Liaisons
  1. Folks have been bypassing the Trouble Ticketing system. This topic is discussed - Will to address liaisons.
Networking
  1. Media Tech - they are working in West today - rooms 229 & 419, Ref presentation area and Ref desk. They will also take a look at the Education Library to evaluate the area for a potential classroom set-up.
  2. CNS - West security cameras - they discovered we do have enough fiber to VLAN into West.
  3. Xerox - they no longer have a PC Technician. For now, the copier tech will handle to print release stations. They will hire a replacement.
  4. Daylight Savings Time issue - will effect Outlook, Exchange, SQL, etc. A patch went out last week - need to verify that the OS on the Exchange server is patched as well as workstations. We will test mailboxes.
  5. Replacement for NT2R - Will is going to get a quote - two pieces - one here and one at MSL.
  6. Campus AD - back on the radar. Once CLAS and CNS join - the Brain Institute is already there - we may be on our way. Two different issues: campus sign-on for public - how to handle (there is no facility for this in AD) and VISTA. Lots to be discussed on this topic. A central Exchange server will be a plus to AD. 60% of workstations on campus have either gone on to or are committed to AD.
  7. The Systems Exchange server failed over to the second node sometime over the weekend.
Software Projects Status
  1. NT18 - Winston restarted it this weekend - it broke the Patron Updates. Since it is mid-semester, it's not a big deal.
  2. Forms-to-Mail - not unplugged yet. Go for it.
  3. FCLA- Dewey conversion is done.
  4. Training Database - demo cancelled.
  5. Tracking database - working on Phase II changes.
  6. Greenstone - updates soon.
  7. Ephemeral Cities - will start back up on March 3.
Systems Security Management
  1. Meeting held.
