    Re: Last Day of Term? What work you got planned over summer.

    Were in the third week of our holidays!
    So far I have:
    Set up the New Dell Server
    Renamed the Domain
    Installed Exchange
    Installed WSUS
    Written various scripts in VB for administration tasks including importing new users.
    Currently Spreading 8 APs around the school using PoE and extending a redundant network in the room their going in upto the ceiling so the little darlings cant get hold of them too easy.

    After friday I'm off for 2 weeks. Before then I got to help the IT teacher doing the website with some style sheets and stuff then thats me done.

    I also need to chuck a load of stuff in the skip.

    Re: Last Day of Term? What work you got planned over summer.

    Ok, on third week of hols here. Last week was finding my desk & organising my office now that I'm permanent. This week has been installs & configs for our second network and I've just started on software installs & audits on all the systems in the Whole School network.

    Still to do:

    Network card installs in music,
    IT Handbook to write,
    More software installs,
    Fixing phone faults,
    Pugging clay for the art department (hell, it's a change from the computers!),
    Sorting out the extra thousand users on the network from before I came here & getting them ready to be deleted,
    Installing network cabling in Chemistry.

    And that's just the jobs I can think of right now.

    OK, I got to re-build the client image and re-image 350 + PC's. 12 laptops to configure and 5 to re-configure for new users.

    1x Exchange 2003 server. 'How to' books on order.
    Spring Cleaning of the existing servers
    Looking at WSUS.
    Rolling out the Exchange Server to the Admin area.
    Lots of little things.

    Re: Last Day of Term? What work you got planned over summer.

    This is getting a bit like the 4 yorkshiremen ....

    Right ...

    We have ...

    70 new PCs (2 rooms of 30 and 10 for music)
    30 of these are upgrades so we are moving various rooms around, leading to re-imaging 300+ PCs.
    18 eMacs/1 Mac Mini
    30+ laptops to sort
    New switch hardware, combining Curriculum, Admin and Training School networks at last!
    Dealing with moving the SIMS box onto a different domain.
    New W2K3 domain (finally getting rid of legacy bits) incorporating SMS and MOM.
    8 new APs.
    10 Projectors
    storage for 120 Laptops
    Configure 3 VLEs (First Class, Moodle, Digital Brain)
    Complete documentation for policies and procedures.
    New behaviour tracking system.
    Teachers' desktop (eventually)
    Lesson Monitor (eventually)

    And probably lots more ...

    Oh yeah ... all that exams malarky ...

    Got about 250 workstations to rebuild. Easy peasy! Look upon my works and despair.

    Well I'm glad my summer holidays are quieter than yours :P

    1 new DC, 66 new workstations around the school, plus 62 going into 2 brand new ICT Suites, moving SIMS over to whole-school network, 50 peices of software to MSI up on our backlog list, finding out what my desk looks like without piles on it...
