Eager for the new Sun Ray stations and server to arrive...
By Diogo Luiz Bohm on Mar 25, 2009
Here at UNISC we're waiting these next two weeks for the new SunRay 21" stations and the new server to manage and serve those stations. Installing and configuring it would be a great experience, not only to understand the concepts of those stations applications, but I'll have the opportunity to start with a whole new Solaris install. As the informatics department server admin, that would give me the software versioning control since the beggining, without the need to fix lots of dependencies everytime I need to install new software on the server, as it is right now.
We're now as the first priority looking over the network support, as the number of stations will rise significantly after the server goes up and running. After such, next week I hope, we'll focus on planning the resources needed in order to make them work properly. What are the dependencies? Which applications do I need to serve correcly the students' needs?
A long way to run, little time to get there. But that's life!
