Current Projects

Posted by graycat on 29 April 2009

Wow, it’s certainly been a while since I posted! I’m sorry but I’m going to have to roll out the usual “I’ve been really busy” excuse and follow it up with some more imaginative ones at a later date!

Anyway, I thought I’d take a few minutes and just post up my current fun projects and see how we get on with them from there.

OpenSource FTP server – with the money being tight of late, I’ve decided to replace an aging server with one we’re currently using as our FTP server. For those people that can count, you will have realised this leaves me a server short. Well done and have a cookie. As we’re not using a hell of a lot of space on the FTP site (I think it max’d at 20Gb once) I’ve decided to use an old desktop, slap Linux on it and run with that.

Server Monitoring – We’ve installed a CentOS box with Nagios on to cover primarily our servers but also whatever else we can get working!

DR Testing – an interesting question arose regarding restoring public folders on / from an Exchange 2000 Enterprise installation that needs to be tested.

VMWare Expansion – the more and more we use it, the more and more drive space we need. Time to expand the array, Captain!

OWA Customisation – just tarting up the logon page to our Exchange servers somewhat and adding some corporate branding. Basically make it look pretty.

Various new software packages need updating and creating so watch out for the latest trials and tribulations with those!
