Prospective Date: 28th October 2007


Well Volunteered:

Things to achieve:

  • Clean/service Piper's cooling system
    • Not that service doesn't go amiss, but is there anything actually wrong with it? Seth
    • At least two fans have stopped. --Pert 14:45, 30 September 2007 (BST)
  • Remove old patch panel and associated Cat5
  • Reconfigure Vislor as the backup server
    • Tennant? Serial consoles are nice, but maybe it's a speed issue? Seth
    • It's a RAM and speed issue. The rsyncs to Tennant were taking far too long. --Pert 14:45, 30 September 2007 (BST)
  • Skip old/useless hardware from room/cupboard/bacam's office
    • I noticed a bunch of old PC cases there I didn't recognise, has someone mistaken tardis for a skip? Seth
    • Yeah, looks like it. --Pert 14:45, 30 September 2007 (BST)
  • Move all users' home directories into one place and change the current directories into symlinks. This will mean that there is no need to run automount and '/home' can become a symlink to '/tardis/home'.

Prerequisites:

  • Alert users to downtime
    • IRC channel - Done --Pert 21:28, 29 September 2007 (BST)
    • Mailing List: Allusers
    • /etc/motd - Done by Aragorn
  • WD40/3in1 Oil
  • Find/buy BIG disk for Vislor
    • What's wrong with the one in tennant? Seth
    • They are a bit fucked and new ones are very cheap. --Pert 14:53, 30 September 2007 (BST)
    • I think we decided in the pub, that one of the 120GB disks from tennant will do the job in vislor so no need to find/buy a new disk. --Pert 16:23, 6 October 2007 (BST)
  • Ask .inf.ed about disposal of hardware
