ISG/ESG Servers in the EECS Win2K Domain:

Meeting Schedule and Minutes:

Questions and Investigations:

  1. Adding Computers:
    ESG/ISG sys admins will be allowed to add computers and users under the INSTRUCTIONAL OU. IDSG has a "Memorandum of Understanding" (
    IDSG 2K, IDSG forms ?) about the procedures that we will sign.

  2. UPSs:
    Pei has taken over implemetation of a UPS in 165 Cory, to be shared by IDSG, CUSG, ASG, ESG and ISG.

    We want a UPS that can send a serial line signal to each computer on it, to start the shutdown.

    ESG needs to submit a list of computers and related power requirements. These seem to be the ESG computers in 165 Cory: Netshow, Fischer, Data, WEB, California, ESG, ESG1, ESG2, Polgar, Browne and 2 unnamed ones on the rack above Polgar

    ISG's list for 165 Cory:

      	Kasparov (home dirs):	max 1400 VA  (disk, cpu, crt = 3 5-15R plugs)
    	Vortex (home dirs):	max 1400 VA  (disk, cpu, kvm = 3 5-15R plugs)
    	Cory  (WEB server):	max  960 VA  (cpu,crt  = 2 5-15R plug)

    ISG's list for 387 Soda:

    	Mamba (home dirs):	max 1800 VA (2 disk, cpu, tape, crt = 5 5-15R plugs)
    	Viper (email, WEB):	max 1000 VA (cpu, crt = 2 5-15R plugs)

  3. Exchange 2000:
    Alex will review the options and we'll discuss at a future meeting.
