Today’s Activities:

  • Backups:

      • It didn’t like its name, so it used a different one.
    • Repaired retention times of eight (8) save sets across five (5) tapes.
    • rhino failed – is it gone or just broken?
  • LDAP/Accounts:
    • Final restart to put 2.4.45 out and support eduPersonPrincipalNamePrior.
    • eduPersonPrincipalNamePrior in use. Updated 218 LDAP entries and removed 222.

    • RPO alerts of new person – found, expect no issues.

    • Something borked on May 19 when 120815L4 was relabeled.

      Lost the number of relabels though (but it was only 4).
