Unisc's new OpenSolaris server!

Me and the servers

I've got permission from the Informatics Department to install OpenSolaris in yet another server. Menphis, which had SXDE installed is being hardware migrated to this shiny Sun server that was once used to manage SunRay stations, and so on, I offered to also migrate the system to the open and most recent version of Solaris, OpenSolaris 2009.06. I even used the special USB stick I received from Eduardo Lima at FISL to make the installation on the server.

This new server is going to host all web services students and professors from Computer Science and Endineering courses make use of, such as Apache Web Server, Trac, Subversion, CVS, Glassfish, MySQL, PostgreSQL, Mailman and many more, with better hardware. I offered myself to do the migration and make sure no data is lost in the process. So on, I'm installing this new server right now at Block 17's "Aquarium".

Eager for the new Sun Ray stations and server to arrive...

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!
