These were accepted as a reasonable account of the last meeting.
Ongoing - relates to access logs only (for now).
A new owner has been found but need to confirm whether tapes need to be wiped first (all 500 of them!)
There is a blog post.
We didn't send an announcement about Sierra but Gordon will send out an email to sys-announce about Mac upgrades. Should encourage this but TiBs will not work with Sierra as yet.
Actions added or revived:
All pages with review date prior to August 2015 to be reviewed.
UG3/4/5 and MSc's will receive full quota from the start.
See Inf report
Alastair noted that he is reluctant to change any ordering and things have probably been like this since 1997! It is now on MPU's list of things to do. Will fix the problem in SL7 and consider changes in SL8.
See Inf report
Stephen has run cron job.

Report from Computing Executive Group
CEG were asked about the AT move, in particular if it is on time. Alastair noted that the timescales are very tight but there has been no confirmation of any delay and all proposed changes are likely to go ahead.
Reports from Units
These are now being sent to all COs so please look at and fix any problems caused by your machines!
COs' local home directories will NOT be preserved when the network servers are upgraded to SL7. Take appropriate action yourself or contact George directly.
US's wiki page is here.
Topics for discussion
Toby asked if this could be fixed. MPU will look into it (running om ntp run appears to fix the problem) and Alastair will look into writing a script which will report VMs with incorrect times.
We discussed Toby's problem statement . The main action points were:
We will try PXE first but waiting for IS response from HP. FreeDOS should be supported but instructions also say "Use WIndows" so there appears to be conflicting information.
Neil asked about a recent request for a web address for the new Bayes building. Alistair to speak to Jon about this as it doesn't seem appropriate.
The next meeting will be on Wednesday 22nd March at 10:00, in IF-4.31, chaired by Alison.
