  • The weekly rota for handling RT/support requests will start on the 19th of June. The order will be alphabetical: Bill, Craig, Gordon, Neil. PICK

  • ptn089 - Bill will exclude the problem users data directory that is causing the problem with rsync. The problem is the shear number of files, 50,000 files in a single dir. We still have full tape backups so, we are covered in case of disaster. bug_small.png Bug #2305

  • hippo - diskdata. The problem was that the scripts, etc were running out of Craig's old NFS home dir. However it got zapped during Lindsey's clear outs. Craig will fix - bug_small.png Bug #2306

  • FC5 login machine - The machine kot.inf has been installed as fc5.login.inf.ed.ac.uk, and eveyone (all DICE users) are allowed to login.

  • minutes on www.inf - Gordon will speak to support about a script to help the creation minute directories for the admin staff. bug_small.png Bug #2307

We should keep a track record of service interruptions.
