Craig now to update.
Services haven't been able to reproduce the problem yet.
To be discussed at meeting on Tuesday 2nd.
Craig has a VirtualBox solution for Macs working. Once a Mac Mini is purchased he'll give some thought to where to put it and how to manage it, and document how to use it for testing. (New action forked for this.)
Just one RAT machine remaining
Alastair to write up.
Just a few changes to the security document to do. Craig will then push for all actions to be completed.
Blog articles completed:
Report from Computing Executive Group
Alastair gave a verbal report on CCPAG:
Alastair, Ian and Sam had also been at an IPv6 meeting recently. Alastair commented that it's something we should be ramping up. There'll be a lot of thought and learning required.
Reports from units
There had been some progress since last time. All Units should continue to review their nagios use. (This will be added as a recurrent action.)
To be taken to a Technical Discussion Meeting for further technical discussion.
There's also a (University-wide) issue with efinancials randomly logging people out in such a way that they either have to phone up for the process to be completed or else wait for a 15-minute timeout.
It's not clear how much these two issues have been conflated by our users. Once the second is fixed we'll get more idea of how much of an issue the first is.
Topics for discussion
After some discussion of the issues it was concluded that a reasonable compromise would be for anyone leaving the server room on Thursday mornings to lock the door with the key. At other times the swipe lock should suffice through the working day. The key lock will normally be used outside working hours in any case.
[Post-meeting comment: Ian has put up a reminder notice to this effect.]
The next meeting will be on 10th December 2014 at 10:00, in IF-4.31
