Report from Computing Executive Group
The freeze on development work will continue to allow pandemic planning to continue.
Neil suggested 'hot spare' machines to ensure that disruption to services that are being moved/upgraded/replaced are kept to a minimum.
Alastair stressed the importance of reading and acting on these e-mails timeously.
Reports from units.
Everyone to try out the nut component using the new forum-server-room.h header.
Another reminder to upgrade to Cosign V3! From 7th October, the version 2 flag will not be added by default but can still be added via resources although upgrading is the preferred route!
Please continue to schedule server reboots as soon as possible.
The suggestion of setting a firm deadline for teaching software requests was discussed. IS enforce a deadline. We should consider cost/resource implications. Course material should not be changed until upgrade tested?
Rather than having to specify this option, perhaps this should be the default.
Topics for discussion
Exporting group data Should leave this topic until Craig is present but the suggestion of creating an aiai cell was suggested as one option.
FH machine room Concern over the lack of progress with fixing the air-conditioning at FH was raised. This will be chased as a matter of urgency.
The next Operational meeting will be on Wednesday 14th October in IF-G03.
