Equipment Received/Installed/Repaired

Liaisons
  1. Celebrate & Educate session is scheduled on November 1st at 2:00 pm at MSL Room 107 - to celebrate our exemplary security incident report. John Sawyer from CNS will speak and light refreshments provided by the Employee Recognition fund.
Networking
  1. McAfee updates: Will is working on it.
  2. SAN - close to roll-out. Probably could be ready next week, but Logan will be out at training. He needs to reinstall more software. We have a new file server on order for DLC. Also need to add arrays to fiber network.
  3. Central Exchange Server - campus is offering Exchange 2K7 to the entire campus. Kickoff scheduled for February. Mailbox space to be unlimited. Public folders and distribution lists will be supported. There will be several tiers of support; we would take the second level. Training will be offered. Our whole organization will be moved to Campus AD. We are currently experimenting with public machines. We hope to migrate the public machines around Christmas time and the first group of staff machines by spring. By the summer, we may have the entire domain on Campus AD, or at least all users. It is a good deal; this is basically an offer we cannot refuse.
  4. Backup Exec upgrade - not done yet. There is no space on the server. We're working on it.
  5. Wireless in East is done.
