[edit] 2012-02-02

  • reviewed notes from last meeting
    • wifi password - keeping it the same as last month
    • action items:
      • FreeNAS: Incomplete - JustBill
      • OSSIM: Incomplete. Plan to virtualize and implement. -Carl
      • Doorduino: Incomplete. LDAP, python script, hardware implemented and tested. Testing is unreliable possibly due to hardware issue.
    • NYSYS: Seems reliable. There was a problem with the WAN hub that was replace by JustBill. To stop this from happening in the future, we need to setup proper grounding.
  • we need to change the password for members
    • plan to wait until member meeting
    • will give out JustBill's phone number for support
  • Meraki: Still getting $10/mo. Not planning on expanding coverage
  • pfSense Failure
    • someone was plugging in their phone to charge it into the firewall!
    • CDROM caused crash - remediated and stable.
  • Network room lock
    • have lock but no keys
    • plan to implement with a door strike and iButton
  • Hacker network - needs a new AP. JustBill will supply. AntiTree will implement
  • VPN Access - needs to be updated

Action Items:

  • Ground the server room: JustBill
  • Implement warzone: AntiTree
  • Reimplement VPN: Carl

[edit] 2011-04-07

  • Begin planning of possible isolation of project network from production environment.
    • Agreed to split project network into two networks: the project network as it exists now will become the "development" network, and a new "project" network will be created by Chris that more closely resembled the warzone (without the open warfare)
  • LDAP update - you know who you are.
    • Progress has been made, no ETA yet
  • ESX updates - will be going over more technical description of what available.
    • Bill gave us a brief intro to what he has been working on with our VMWare environment. Will be having a class for people who wish to admin the setup within the next few months
