    Acceptable Use(age) Policy basically a document that the users agree too which outlines what they can and can't do on the system and the Internet.

    Re: Ranger Bypass

    If this junior member of the ICT Services team is VI Former, just take away his admin access for a while and tell him that he's relegated to putting paper in printers and changing toner etc.

    If you really wanted to you could interpret his use of said batch file as an abuse of power. Clearly he's not using the access rights for what they were given to him for if he's got time to sit and play about with blocking ranger when he's meant to be working for ICT services!

    Sod the AUP...how's about an "if you're not doing what you're meant to be doing go home/sit in the common room" policy?

    Slap him and remove all access rights - send him on printer and keyboard cleaning duties and any other long dirty task not involving the use of a PC.

    Re: Ranger Bypass

    What makes a really horrid job is cleaning brick dust out of servers and switches etc. He'd have fun doing that.

    But of course...if there isnt any already in there then it's not recommended to add it to the mix


    I remember when we had some comms guys come to move the internet line to our server room...they didnt put a dust sheet over the servers and drilled through the wall right behind the main data cab.

    I was the smallest person in ICT Services at the time (but at 6' 2" I was possibly tallest!) so i was sent behind the server cab to vaccum dust...fun fun fun, I THINK NOT!

    I should probably just re-emphasise that although i was the VI Form techie, it was just because i could fit behind the cab and not because i'd been abusing my power LOL.

    You see being tall and slim has its advantages we can fit in amazingly small spaces and can generally be more flexible than more "enhanced" people.

    Sadly if your 6'3" and 200lbs that's not going to happen lol however you can just move the server cabinet out of the way like I have in the past! Sadly the new cabinet weighs so much now that even I struggle to move it on casters lol!

    Re: Ranger Bypass

    Well, unfortunately, our server cab was bolted to the floor and the cable plant didnt have enough slack for it to be moved away from the wall. Not only did this rack have two of the domain controllers in it, it also had the main chassis switch and 6 other HP procurves and all the patch panels for the e-learning centre.

    The rest of the servers were on shelves around it. So i had to crawl through this shelving system and then someone had to pass me the vacuum hose through the servers LOL.
