  • SOWN[at]HOME Nodes
    • Drummond node kernel paniced and for some reason didn't reboot. SjH is looking into the problem. This is a different problem to that seen previously.
    • Highfield Crescent is either off or has also crashed.
    • daveruss to look into who needs to return nodes before they leave the Uni.
    • Time default script has been rolled out to most nodes, there is also a script to test if the upgrade has been run.
    • It was also discussed that we should have a new nagios script to check that nodes have been upgraded with the latest install scripts on Auth.

  • Admin Tasks
    • A new radius login php/c script is now running on Auth which also provides greater security.
    • Startup Issues - Nat is now fixed to allow port 4444.
    • Database Permissions Audit (crwilliams)
      • Colin has been looking into this and is constructing a list of things ready to be moved or deleted.
    • LDAP Query Permissions Audit needed?
      • Is a good point and should be looked into at some point.
    • Nagios 'Reminders' to 'support' email address (crwilliams)
      • Are these necessary? - Yes but they need to be snapshot not a digest.
      • If so, at what frequency? - 8am, 12pm , 4pm
      • How about via sown-bot? - Leave as is.

  • SOWN Core Network Update (Davetaz)
    • 6core and Dev are working on a life support machine which will be switched off soon, they need to be replaced ASAP.
    • Nat will be replaced with a new box and nat will become dev. The new NAT will then duplicate as NAT and 6core with 3 interfaces.
    • Final outcome being one less box on the network.
    • We need to leave the bottom 3U of our rack free for a UPS.

  • WiMAX
    • We are still working on get building plans. Otherwise no progress

  • 802.11r (Jos)
    • One of the nodes works, the second needs to be slaved against it. The setup node scripts need to be tweaked to support multiple node types.
    • Work is in progress.

  • AOB
    • None
