SPECIAL EQUIPMENT:

  1. The SAN storage (Terra Byte Storage) is connected to the Server through fibre channel
  2. The home directory of students or teachers are physically kept in the (SAN box) and NFS-mounted to other servers so that they are accessible in a transparent manner
  3. The Blades are being used to provide different services to the users (NIS/DNS/MAIL/MS Windows)
  4. NIS is transferred to Blade having 12 blades. Two blades have already been configured, used as Master NIS and Slave NIS
  5. 4 Blade has AIX as operating system, 4 for Windows and 4 for Redhat enterprise linux version 4
  6. The High-End workstations are primarily used by the PG students, Research Scholars and Faculty members.  Occasionally UG students in their project work use these facilities.
  7. The network printers are functioning as print-stations and are being shared by the faculty members and students
