In a perfect world computer systems would not warrant any attention!, they would come into this life (EHU) boxed and sealed, all ready installed, they would unpack, rack mount, configure, upgrade, procure a replacement before it’s warranty has expired, and with a little bit of luck just be good little servers! If this were true we would be out of a job….but like any child there’s always time for the Naughty Step!!
This weekend myself and Paul Cheeseman from Core Services will be re-configuring the Identity management servers (the backend authentication mechanism of which the ‘GO’ Portal, WebCT and GroupWise WebMail relies on).
This will make the syncronisation of passwords much more reliable both from an end-user propective but also from a IT support point of view. It will allow IT Services to progress with the developement of the new version of the ‘GO Portal’ and EHUs Shibboleth implementation (or ShibbyWibbyWoo depending on how many Red Bulls you’ve drunk!).
Let’s hope they behave!!
