Other Issues

  • SOWN-related interns introduction
  • WiMax proposal from Bluenowhere
    • Action required on furthering this based on Davetaz's approval. (technical details etc so we can approach buildings & estates)
  • Sown-6core rebooted.
    • Reason for failure: Kernel panic. Can we figure out why?
    • SjH looked at this the other day, but there wasn't anything obvious that caused it
    • Morse to add a reboot timeout of approx 30mins-1hour so that it will reboot but only after nagios has spotted it in future events.
  • News on Soekris board
    • Shaun Ford will make sure it is returned to daveruss when it comes back

  • Community Account Requests

    • Modification to allow eduroamers
    • Change in how different accounts are authenticated.
      • Ensure that LDAP is still used for statistics on soton users
      • SjH to enquire as to gaining access to ISS radius at some point.
  • Does useradmin_users.php need to be implemented. If so what is it for?
    • Yes: it is a list of all home users/banned users/node admins for node admins to administer (its now on todo list)
  • Progress on Todo list
    • SjH has implemented a register MAC address page on admin site. (https://sown-auth.ecs.soton.ac.uk/admin/useradmin_macregister.php).
      • Currently all user levels have the ability to register up to 2 manual mac addresses (They are destinguished from dhcp added macs by a new field cunningly called 'manual') There is an array at the top of the php file that allows you to specify the number of macs per user level. (it is commented).
