Current hardware - what happens to it?
Hmm, we've been given a coupl eof excel docs to complete listing all current hardware in school along with expected purchases next year and the year after.
They want serial numbers, specs (inc NICs in PCs), purchase dates etc
There aint much they don't want to know!
Now, is this so they know what they're going to be needing to replace when the day comes or what?
And.. what actually happens to our current hardware.. some of which is still pretty damn groovy stuff??
Once we're managed (if we arre, still to be decided i'm told) are we able to keep some of the equipment, are laptops swapped, NAS, UPS, servers etc?
I've only just bought a couple of servers, and a very nice kvm switch!
I've so many related 'what happens' questions, but reading through here has answered a good few of them. I've only just found about the whole tupe thing, wasn't too chuffed i must admit and still very lost on the whole bsf and its benefits now.
To think, this time last month i was believeing we'd have untold amounts of cash to spend, cash that had to be spent on IT too.. it was so nearly a second Christmas!
