Agenda / Minutes
Action items from previous meeting
ACTION (Rein): Confirm that KB notifications are now being received by Rein. Chris sent email log on Dec 15.
Evanthia will remind Rein about this.
ACTION (Anand):Create a SCIREQ ticket to provide users who are unable to login with some means of contacting us. SCIREQ-572
ACTION (Anand): Users have requested the ability to reply to HD tickets by email. Anand will talk with NRAO IT staff about this possibility.
ACTION (Anand): Ask Tony R. whether or not cycle assignments spreadsheet should be updated.
Are users changing ARCs the only concern here? We need to know what bookkeeping is needed to keep track of CS and QA2 changes.
Failover test (Anand)
We performed an exercise on Jan 5 to test the HD software when running in failover mode. A number of procedural problems were identified and corrected. NA IT and web dev staff will be updating scripts to speed up the failover process. Duration of downtime will be constrained by DNS changes which take 30 minutes unless advanced planning is allowed.
Next step: A full, multi-day test of failover mode. This will allow time for each ARC to use the HD and confirm functionality. Preferred dates? No preference was expressed, other than avoiding dates between the CfP and deadline.
