1. Minutes of last meeting


2. Matters Arising

Update on actions from last meeting.

  • Alastair will discuss automated ACL management for shared folders on staffmail with Chris Adie. Craig will discuss with Neil and construct email to send to Scott and/or Chris. Discussed and solution found without IS needing to do anything, but will check with Scott. Craig will make this a minor services project. Done.
  • CUPS needs a service catalogue entry. Project completion also requires a switch to using the IS cups component, upgrade to the newest version of cups and some configuration moved out of live headers. [Action Gordon]
  • Staffmail Migration - We need a way to automate the @inf alias creation for new staff, possibly via Prometheus conduit and the database. Craig will investigate what is required and likely effort. Craig will make this a minor services project. Done.
  • Staffmail Migration - Still not clear if out requirements for the central mailing list service will be effectively met, Craig will investigate what is happening. Graeme has been on holiday, report delayed until next meeting. Supposed to be going live at end of July, with Sympa, "may" meet DB upload reqirements.
  • Create a project to look at checking the strength of existing passwords on the KDC and/or checking password strength when changed on the KDC (at the moment strength checks are only made on DICE clients). Done.
