    Re: Half Term

    In all next week.......two major jobs:

    1. Sort KS3 ICT test software.

    2. Wash the dirty coffee cups lying around the cupboard (AKA server room). Can see 15 from here but probably several hidden away. Discovered why the rack door didn`t close properly yesterday.........I`d wondered where that donut had gone!!!

    Re: Half Term

    Washed the coffee cups.........apart from 3 which I`ve passed onto the Biology teacher.........some interesting growths (the origins of life???) Could this be the answer to the question that humans have struggled with? God was a school tekie who was too busy to wash his cups???!!!!

    Also re-imaged 20 machines in IT room and run latest SIMS upgrade, imported reports etc.

    It`s amazing how much you can get done when no teachers about. Even had time for a ciggie on the steps with the librarian!!!

    Now for the KS3 test software.........gulp <

    Re: Half Term

    Im nearly at the end of my first and only day in . I have just found that trying to RIS 30 machines at once is not a good idea as 50% were not joined to the domain properly at the end so I had to do a few things manually :cry: . Oh well 2 more months and we will get our fiber installed and I will stick in all the new Procurve switches hopefully that should prevent such problems.

    Re: Half Term

    I spent the whole of last week doing things for other people and sorting stuff that couldn't wait. Didn't get much done of what I wanted to

    Also discovered that I now hate robocopy after it failed to copy all the user data to a new server over the weekend. Came in to work at 6:55! to discover than rather than just changing the users home directory location in active directory, that the files had stopped copying after about 10%!

    I wonder who decided that the default time to wait for a retry should be 30 seconds, even better is the default number of attempts to copy - ONE MILLION

    Re: Half Term

    Not much to do this half term, apart from stick in my new Dell PowerEdge 2850, AX100 SAN and Auto tape loader. SAN gives me a whopping 3TB of storage back in 1996 thought 9GB was big!

    Half term - so far collected 4 PCs for reimaging, and then spent the rest of the day, preparing a display for the main school library for next week.

    Re: Half Term

    So Half Term is upon us once again.

    Monday, bank holiday so obviously school is shut. Tuesday is a stat day so again the school is shut. In from Wed to Fri though, planning to upgrade at least 43 PCs, probably more. Solid days work there for two people probably.

    Re: Half Term

    Mon: revise for job interview Weds.

    Tues: Empty ICT suite out of old machines as 6th form are taking over the room as a common room. Must remember to organise the collection of old equipment.

    Weds: Job Interview (eeeek)

    Thurs & Fri: Hopefully start building the new Art & Music PCs (if the stuff turns up on time...). Clear out cupboards, organise toner delivery (just sat in IT room at the mo...)

    Not a very exciting half term, and probably not very productive....
