Achievements / Changes in Last Period

This has been impacted by the requirement from ACF to move the Infrastructure containing the existing backup storage 'admin09' from the row it’s in at the ACF.

This has necessitated that we copy the admin09 library from the old kit to the Data Safe Haven based infrastructure before the end of Nov 19.

We have purchased and run the required cables from the existing rack to the Data Safe Haven Racks.

We have Ian Wilkes (the TSM engineer) booked to be on site for the last week of November to carry out the actual copy.

There are some remaining network requirements that we’ll need to clarify and implement with Stephen Giles.

 

Key Tasks For Next Period  

Clarify and implement the outstanding Network Tasks Required.

Have Ian Wilkes copy Admin09 to the Data safe haven Platform.

Once that’s complete, decommission Admin09.

Re plan migrating the TSM Data from the Admin09 database into the new containers as per the original plan.

RAG Commentary
Current delays on this project are generally down to lack of resource in the Systems Team. We didn't get GPFS installed on time to enable the Tivoli Consultant to fully test a migration process. We may look at the possibility of getting the Tivoli Consultant to backfill the tasks that we need the Systems team to carry out.
