Presentation Transcript

  1. Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil David N. Blank-Edelman <dnb@ccs.neu.edu> Director of Technology College of Computer Science Northeastern University

  2. Credit • significant parts excerpted from CCS MicroNet: Past, Present, Future presentation in progress by Jeff Carpenter, Microcomputer Network Administrator, CCS. • title from book by John Berendt

  3. Why NT? • NT was touted as being more robust/secure than 95 (and MS urged us to go this way) • had sufficient resources & MS support for this effort • Pressure to teach using latest GUI (textbooks already ordered)

  4. Things Working Against Us • had to deploy fast, sans reasonable documentation or testing time • had to deploy in a hostile user environment • had to deploy NT 4.0 before MS had shaken bugs out or ramped up their support • little direct experience with NT prior to deploy (with small staff) • initially did not use “master image” model, forcing modifications to be done by hand • facilities in use almost all the time, had inadequate maintenance/repair access time

  5. CCS MicroNet I

  6. MN1: Problems We Encountered (1) • ab(users) and barricades • user accounts • did not attempt UNIX integration or using painful GUI to enter 1200 accounts • attempt 1: sequence #’s • file permissions & user training

  7. MN1: Problems We Encountered (2) • user accounts (cont.) • attempt 2: single login • server performance/inconsistent machine state • all “users” must be off to make changes • the Registry is not your friend • poison pill • lack of tools • performance problems w/Mac services

  8. What Worked Interactive Machine Building Local NT Printing Services Remote User Authentication What Didn’t Work Non-Lab Printers Remote Profile Access (slow) Automated Machine Building/Re-Building Automated Software Updating CCS MicroNet I

  9. CCS MicroNet II

  10. What Worked LPR Printer Service Automated Client Re-Building Default + Client Registries DHCP FAT Partitions What Didn’t Work Non-Group Accounts Domain Wide Administration Component-ized Registry Segments Remote Administration CCS MicroNet II

  11. CCS MicroNet III

  12. What will work Local Group Accounts Network User Accounts/Profiles Automated Building/Re-Building LPR Printing Centralized Administration CCS MicroNet III • What Will Work • Remote Administration • Multiple Architectures • Multiple Hardware Models • Scaleable • Adaptable

  13. Future Directions • UNIX/NT account & storage integration • Sun NFS • Samba • Messaging • Perl
