 +=== Minutes ===
 +
 +# IPv6
 +#* initially we would use IPv6 internally only, because OIT is not ready to route it on campus
 +#* need an easier way to manage DNS server
 +#* DNS/DHCP appliance by InfoBlox
 +#* need a backup as well
 +#* let's us have a flat network, get rid of NATs
 +#* existing switches are not v6 capable
 +#* Cisco charges $4k,5k to switch it over
 +# State of Infrastructure
 +#* infrastructure is nearly a decade old
 +#* 44x1 subscription rate, and this causes problems for NFS
 +#* replacing core switch over 2-3 years, working with Dell
 +#* do labs first, get to 4.8x1
 +#* eventually do research labs with 10 GB
 +#* will need to pull fiber through building
 +#* Klark and Greg are submitting a college proposal to replace core
 +#* check with Parris -- on support for this proposal
 +# Animation Lab
 +#* wired by Klark and Greg with Cat6
 +# Lab images
 +#* Campus license agreement with RedHat -- can now get Enterprise Server and Workstation
 +#* VMWare Workstation,​ run as a VM on top of Linux
 +#* can then use just NFS and get rid of Samba
 +#* can walk up to any machine and use Linux or Windows
 +#* can look at test machine
 +#* will replace 1/2 machines in labs in 2013
 +#* new lab machines 8 GB RAM, SSD
 +# Lab Spaces
 +#* Spaces should be designed for CS students
 +#* You can do whatever you want (even English homework)
 +#* survey the students for what they want -- Jay, win a pizza if you fill it out
 +#* can we collect data over time for console logins
 +#* automated survey of technologies?​
 +#* survey faculty on what they require and licenses needed
 +#* software licensing only for BYU owned computers
 +#* library spaces available? maybe use them for lower end classes like CS 100?
 +# State of Budget
 +#* see Gordon for budget
 +# Wireless
 +#* Xirrus system put in this past year
 +#* working well everyone, including Gigapix
 +#* we have 50 access points that we are not running, and a dozen or so that are completely open
 +#* do we really need the rest of the APs, because they cause collisions?
 +#* can we get faculty to switch?
 +#* system we put in was not cheap, can you justify why you have yours?
 +#* have Greg and Klark make a list of access points and then we can go around and talk to faculty
 +# Disk Storage
 +#* Replacing NFS storage
 +#* two servers, two disk vaults with 30 disks each (out of 60 capacity), 900 GB SAS
 +#* RedHat high availability,​ so if one fails the other takes over
 +#* connected to new switch with 10 GB connection to each NFS server
 +# Security Scan
