 +====Budget 2009 and 2010====
 +Total in for 2009 is 150k.  College does have needs with 35k (on reserve) we can draw upon.  Enough funds to just barely cover faculty needs. ​ No increase to faculty; faculty use what they have left.  2010 will not a buy year.  Save for 2011.  Implies a 5 year usage on the machines. ​ Dell's will be gone.  Screens are lasting longer but we will need to save screens as best we can.  ​
 +
 +'''​Loren''':​ explore SAS versus SAN versus working within what we have.

 +Save what we can.  Access funds may or may not come back.  Need to make a good case for computer rotation in our open lab facilities.

 +====Server Migration and Proposal====
 +AC is ready. ​ Just turn it on.  Plan on downtime Saturday morning. ​ Post message to faculty this Wednesday, Feb 25, on the outage and explanation of plans including disclaimer regarding chaos and other bad things that ensue. ​ Time line:
 +* Verify we have mounting brackets for the servers (moving 16 servers downstairs)
 +* Verify plugs and outlets for UPS
 +* Get location and rack allocation from Loren with VLAN switch
 +* '''​Klark'''​ --> Wednesday, Feb 25: faculty message
 +* Thursday, Feb 26: verify switches are programmed for the VLAN
 +* Friday, Feb 27: pre-stage batteries downstairs for UPS or use Loren'​s rack mountable APC units
 +* Saturday, Feb 28: move servers downstairs (6:00 AM)
 +* Happily turn everything on at 9:00 AM.  :)
 +* Mid-April target for new servers on the second floor
 +
 +'''​Gordon:'''​ Check with Loren that we are not purchasing UPSs for the racks in the server room.  The understanding is that we are not putting UPSs in the racks.
 +
 +'''​Loren:'''​ Communicate with faculty a time line for migrating downstairs (try to avoid surprises where possible). ​ Maximize advanced notice where possible.
 +
 +
 +HP was on campus last week.  Discussed needs and is working on a quote (next several days).
 +
 +|
 +
 +* OIT to provide wireless services? On hold for long term.  Remove from agenda and we will add at a later date.
 +* Division of labor page on wiki to define Klark and Loren'​s roles for committee and faculty: forward email to Eric M. to add to our wiki page.
 +* Monitoring and reporting for open-lab statistics: working on a rewrite on ''​labmon''​
 +* Bring up labs 1066, 1057, 1106, and 1062: cleaning computers in 1066 (workers had moved back in delaying the process). ​ 1057 is on hold for the final walk through (most of the tables are in).
 +* Assess battery status and replace batteries as needed for 3 hour coverage
 +* Migrate servers downstairs in advance of second floor construction
 +* Prepare proposal for new bladed systems
 +* LDAP migration to new servers
 +* Bring backups on home directories back on line

 +I have heard several complaints about dans guardian. ​ I tried to get to CNN.com or deseretnews.com and all of the pictures are broken. ​ I think that it really slows down access to everything too.  Do we need this in the department when the university does filtering?
