Support Services Meeting Notes
July 23, 2007

Present: Will Chaney, Bill Covey, Kelley Cunningham, Erich Kesse, Cynthia McLean, Rob Roberts
Systems
  1. Exchange problems are still ongoing. "Trying to connect" is the error message currently displaying. We suspect it is a domain controller issue. Logan is looking into it. We will call Dell, if necessary, for assistance.
  2. Winston wanted it mentioned that he received an email from Public Services asking that he change authentication from barcode to UFID. Bill will follow-up.
  3. Switch for DLC - for the CopiBooks - Lori asked Logan to check into it. Right now they are still using the switch that Laurie bought.
  4. FTP - 30TB of data for DLC. There is only 4.5TB on UFDC. This would be a transfer method to send and receive content. Based on a grant. Are the internet archives on Internet 2? If not, it would take a long time to transfer the data.
  5. Back-ups are running better - we made some registry changes - still some failures with SQL server.
  6. New SAN server - it has been racked. Logan is scheduled to attend VM ware training next week.
Facilities
  1. Room 205 - Grand Reading Room East - Special Collections would like to move map cases in/out in the half walled area. The cases would be loaded. There is a concern about the weight. Need to get an engineer from PPD to look into it. They can't be moved until we get the okay.
  2. Agotti is here - on the 6th floor to do the install. Rob will give Bahar a heads-up.
  3. Cameras - Rob just found out that all cameras on campus are blocked because they don't want anyone to access the nuclear reactor on campus. All camera ports are blocked. Bill will talk to CNS.
  4. Air handler motor on the 3rd floor of West is burned out. They are unable to access it to remove it. They are going to have to cut it out of the air handler. Bill and Rob will check out this situation.
  5. Circ desk mock-up will be in tomorrow.
  6. The southwest doors in MSL that were permanently locked - Lenel freed them up. They have been released and are working. Rob will get a quote to add the to the MSL project.
  7. All of the tables in MSL have been moved.
  8. Education - Rob has a call into Ed to see if it is complete.
