Systems is finishing the reimaging of the public machines and classrooms.
Systems has received a new server primarily for image files. A new RLIN client is coming out and will be installed at the end of the semester.
Grace Agnew requested that PCWG conduct a computer needs assessment online survey of RUL staff to determine how to best spend limited PC replacement funds. While the consensus of the Group is that all Win95 machines are the highest priority for immediate replacement, we drafted a short basic survey that Ann B. will take to Sam and Sean for them to send out via RUL_everyone. Turnaround time will be limited to one week to allow PC Coordinators to analyze the data and make recommendations to Grace by mid-March.
The body of the survey will consist of the following draft questions:
The group discussed appropriate size allocations for S: and T: users. These recommended guidelines are incorporated into the attached policy document.
We discussed whether to swap machines or reimage machines when staff members change jobs or workplaces in regard to the Exit Procedures Policy.
The next meeting is scheduled for March 16, 2004 back at TSB.
