Discussed

Future Location of Tardis

- Weighed up access opportunities to the forum against possibility of obtaining space another department - A cupboard in Appleton Tower for setup/storage would be useful - Agreed that the housing tardis in the informatics forum is probably the best solution - We will probably be restricted to access within teaching hours but we will have to work around this.

Tutorials/Workshops/Talks

- Workshops dependant on space to play with servers - Talks about something (sjh: DNS/bind?) (Jay: webservers?)

Cluster Project

- Has potential to be turned off if Inf deem us to be using too much power - cluster can be used 'on demand' - Networking for nodes plugged into head node - NetLOM of each node plugged into switch - LOM passwords need changed

Gamesoc

- New agreement see GameSoc - Server will need to talk out to the internet on certain ports (some gameservers require this to function) - Possible wake-on-lan (server will probably only be used once a week) - Steve will pinch acquire an nice server for them to use (Intel based please)

Router

- Possibly use a Sun 210 as the router - Has gigabyte network card with four interfaces - LOM (network plugged straight into Inf network) as a fallback if it breaks

Other Boxes

- Other 210: possibly install solaris to make sjh happy - Move donated stuff (BT donated) to cupboard

Decommision

- 2x Netra (will need returned to Charles) - Adric can be decommissioned

Networking

- Rearrange VLans to make things neater - Network management in separate Vlan - Cluster and network management in own Vlan

Other

- Open up outbound IRC (through bouncer to prevent port-forwarding via ssh)
