    Re: Age of your oldest (production) server?

    We just got Science College Status and the school got a massive injection of cash because of it. Management basically said to us "Here is some money, spend it as you will" so I spent about £8000 in new servers and equipment

    We have had loads of cash spent on us and general ICT equipment in the last year. We've had a new fibre ring (£12000), new servers and UPS (£8000), new office (£lots), new aircon (£7000), new projectors and whiteboards (£I dread to think) and I'm looking to spend even more in April

    Re: Age of your oldest (production) server?

    Well just had a new office partitioned from our main IT computer room nice and big it is too! The electrics were done to my spec and I cabled the network sockets so we have plenty of expansion available. This year hopefully new servers, new classroom of Desktops, a mobile classroom and expansion of an existing mobile classroom, Air Con in IT1,IT2, My Office/Comms Room and Resources (All very hot in the spring/summer!), new software for email and remote access, VPN system to be implemented by our LEA by summer, new storage server/NAS/SAN new UPS old ones to be fitted in switch cabinets, new fibre links in a star network/bus network topology, upgrade finally to Office 2003 (if at all possible/viable seeing as thenew version is soon released!) Ghost and Deep freeze, proper RIS system, finally removing RM, new switches and hopefully a much more stable system. Has anyone heard that the new SIMS .NET release in the summer may need a minimum of Office 2003 to work? Heard this from an LEA support guy but not sure?

    Re: Age of your oldest (production) server?

    I bought Deepfreeze 5 weeks ago, not got round to installing it yet, looks good though. My plans for this year are:

    32 pc room rekit, new base units and tft's.
    Set up wireless network to take 64 mobile laptops so we have 2 floater units of 32.

    Thats all the mjor things I will be able to fit in this year, alongside VLE's emails for kids and all the other junk Jake and I have to do.
