The following items were removed from the actions list:
Ian asked for clarification on what tools were needed in server areas, essentially just a Philips screwdriver (maybe multiple sizes) and wire cutters (cable tie cutters).
Report from Computing Executive Group
Frontline Support Issues
Alison has requested a change in the procedures to allow students to login 15mins prior to official exam start to allow technical problems to be resolved without requiring extensions and disturbance to others (and involving computing staff in questions which should be handled by the official invigilators). While this has received generally positive response the details need to be ironed out to be in line with official registry examination rules.
Reports from units.
The temperature graphs are only an indirect indication of the ambient room temperature (the hogwood graph is probably closest). Turning on the cluster seems to have had no change in the nominal temperature. One A/C unit by the clusters is still showing as in fault and the temperature there is higher - George will reset to see if that helps.
Still 80 to do, perhaps people are waiting to tie it in with the AFS changes in stable this week?
Actually about 50 filesystems still to move but should still manage on time.
The remaining users (for access to old mail, new mail is going to staffmail) have had trouble transferring the mail (corrupted mail headers break imapsync or needed increase in quota).
Access to the printer wire will be firewalled and only allowed from the specific IP addresses of the MIS machines that need to print directly. The lpr.cups command does accepts but does not print more than one file given on the command line - being investigated.
Can we see a breakdown by Unit queue? Can we have graphs?
