We have temporarily moved Tardis to [http://websiterepository.ed.ac.uk/maps/central-area/forrest-hill-building/ Forest Hill].  We are still looking for a pertinent home (maybe [http://websiterepository.ed.ac.uk/maps/central-area/appleton-tower/ AT]?).  More information [[FHMove|here]].

* New SSL certificate for Tardis.

** 2x Gateway Esomthings, 2x Ultra5s, 3x Dell SFF Boxes
** Our old self-signed one has expired. Perhaps it's worth looking into a Edinburgh or JANET/GlobalSign signed one. See [http://www.ucs.ed.ac.uk/fmd/unix/docs/certificates/admin.html] for more details.

* Look at moving piper ([[NFS Service]]) to a new box - hard drives sound dodgy
* Setting up the new Sun machines and adding them to Tardis:

* [[Cluster]] setup
** Also known as "<em>getting shit out of my flat and in to the rack...</em>" --sjh

* Migrate Ace onto the two Netra T1's ideally in an HA setup
* Migrate [[Mara]] onto the Sun Fire 280R
