Report from Computing Executive Group
Reports from Units
George also reported that the AT level 6 UPS appeared to have failed.
Some of the KVM servers are filling up. All Units were requested to review their list of VMs and delete any that were not needed. Chris reminded the meeting that this should include updating the wiki page for individual servers.
The MPU requested that all computing staff should move their desktop machines to Ubuntu as soon as practical. Stephen should be available if direct access to machines is required.
Ian asked if the plan was for all desktop machines to move to Ubuntu. Stephen replied that this was the case and that a timeframe for this work was forthcoming. Ian then asked if there would be backup SL machines available if it should turn out that some aspects of our work could not currently be done under Ubuntu. Stephen replied that buildsl7 was available and machines moved to Ubuntu could in any case be moved back to SL if required.
