Revision as of 18:12, 9 March 2007

Some sort of attempt at a todo list. Yes, before someone bitches, this is no substitute for a tracker. Could maybe look into trac? Well, yeah, exactly...

It's better that this being kept track of in my head!

Serious Issues

Web transition to Mara

  • Mara is up and running (and runs the wiki).

We were planning on moving web to it, right?

    • Not sure what this is waiting on
  • SSL Certs - The cert on davros is out of date

Mail upgrade

  • mccoy is getting on and is often quite loaded.
    • Should move mail onto a U5
    • Waiting on a spare machine

Backups

Firewall

  • Davison is getting replaced. Slowly.


Quick Fixes

  • Miscellaneous Scripts
  • RAM Fitting. There should be a reasonable amount of 128MB U5 ram kicking about, which will bring machines up to 512MB. Apparently 256 sticks are available also
  • Fix the groups (gliding,gamesoc and compsoc all have the same gid (1037). Also, gliding has their group hardcoded into /etc/group as well as LDAP)

Medium Term

Xen

  • We may have a new machine for this. It is shiney.

Long Term

  • Suggestions...?




Issues (Mostly) Dealt With (For Now)

WONTFIX

(RIP reaper)

  • Reaper? Reaper is dead. It is a wee shame. Steve thinks we broke it. It needs a new wotsit board.
  • RAID for reaper.
  • ssh service on reaper
