1 Introduction

The purpose of this document is to provide the member institutions an update ofactivities their Common SUNY Support Center (a.k.a. CSSC or Support Center) hasaccomplished in the past year. The current staff and hardware configurations areoutlined in other sections of this document.

The Training Center performs a necessary function for the Support Center. Wehave noted that when staff at member institutions are properly trained, thequestions are of a more substantive nature. A few new members have not receivedthis training and many of their questions could have been eliminated by havingthe experience of the Training Center. It is assumed that training is now underway for these sites.

2 Advisory Committee - Executive Board

4 Support Center Functions

The functions of the Support Center are outlined in the CSSC's Bylaws. Any majorchanges to these functions would be addressed to Center's Executive Board foraction by the members as a whole or by the Board.

The following is taken from the By-laws and comments as to the activities thathave been done in these areas:

4.1 Objectives and Purpose

The purposes for which the Common SUNY Support Center was formed are:

a. To provide a medium for sharing of knowledge among its member institutions for academic instruction and research and admin- istrative information systems.

Comment: The SUNY Training Center has assisted with this task very well, and the training they have provided has been excellent. In addition the Electronic Mail (EM) and various listservers have assisted with this task. When the Support Center staff has been at various training sessions and meetings we have been able to share mutual concerns.

The introduction of the CSSC newsletter this past year has received a great response. So far nine editions have been sent covering issues such as the CSLG program, DECUS tapes, CWIS, special CSSC software prices, Disaster Recovery, CDROM Online Documentation, Site Inventory Surveys, Comparative Budgeting information, Digital Upgrade costs, Viruses and count of calls received by SCACAD, SCADM and SCSYS.

CWIS (Campus-Wide Information Service) has been developed on the Support Center's system to allow Support Center members access to BSINFO, provides information about facilities; DOC, user documentation; SOFTWAREA, software available for CSSC clients; MOTD, system message of the day; NOTES, access to conferences, listservers on VAX Notes; and VMS HELP.

BBOARD continues to record various listservers in VAX Notes. Today, there are over fifty "mail" lists being logged so that members do not have to store list messages in their own disk space.

Digital's CD-ROM documentation for VMS and Ultrix is available over SUNYnet. Directions were sent to each campus' software license manager for access capability.

DECUS tapes have been made available through three CDROMs to all Support Center campuses. Each campus is required to access a special username which will permit access to these CDROMs.

Questions received by SCACAD and replies given have been compiled and stored in the SCACAD conference in VAX Notes on the Support Center machine (SBSCVA).

Some of the Support Center staff have participated in the Training Center's Wizard Seminars. In addition some CSSC staff have been instructors and made video tapes for the Training Center members and SICAS Center members.

The Training Center and Support Center are planning on using SUNYsat for updates and other information to be presented to their members.

b. To provide requested computer services and facilities including staff, software, equipment, and communications. Among the services include:

1. Copy (distribute) all agency or group licensed software to the member institutions in a timely manner.

Comment: There currently exists a DCL routine which allows campuses to retrieve software over SUNYnet (using DECnet) without intervention of Support Center personnel. This routine, GETSOFTWARE, is started in a "captive account" (usercode) when each site's Software License Manager logs in to the Support Center's system with a special usercode assigned to them. GETSOFTWARE allows each License Manager to review what software is available for down loading, their site information, what jobs they have submitted for software down loading, etc.

This distribution method has been working very well. The SICAS Center (located at the College at Oneonta) has been using this for distribution of the SCT Banner software. The SUNY Library Support Center (SLSC) is planning on using this routine for distribution of the LAIP software.

SUNYnet has made the distribution and collection of information possible. Without SUNYnet additional support staff would definitely be needed in addition to more funds for long distance phone calls (including extra for phone tag).

2. Serve as software support liaison in accordance with agency or group maintenance agreements.

Comment: There are three main areas where member sites can submit questions - Academic Support (SCACAD@snybscva), Administrative Support (SCADM@snybscva), and Systems/Communications Support (SCSYS@snybscva). The following are the numbers of questions / problems by area received From July 1, 1992 to June 30, 1993:

Academic Support 148
Administrative Support 477
System/Communications Support 1,607

3. Serve as a networking hub for services such as DECnet, BITNET and Internet access and to provide alternate path connections to SUNY Central.

Comment: Currently we are the hub for about 25 campuses. When the Joiner software (JNET) is installed on member VAXs, additional systems will be added. The current plan is to have each site VAX "linked" to each other and to have the Support Center linked by the gateway to the non-SUNY BITNET mail traffic. If a campus feels they do not have a system of the size needed to support these links or prefer not to support same, they can have one connection to the CSSC and use this for all other mail connections.

4. House all on-line documentation and Self-Paced Instruction (SPI) courses for access by member institutions.

Comment: Training Center members have access to all of Digital's Computer Based Instructional (CBI) materials on the Support Center's system. In addition "DOC" and "BSINFO" are routines containing information and documentation available for member institutions.

5. Provide a small level of remote VAX computer services for conversion work, training, and access to all software for testing and demonstrations.

Comment: Each campus has assigned a Username manager to assign and monitor usernames on the Support Center system. A routine was developed to allow these managers to assign, change, and delete usernames on the Support Center system. This was one of the original goals to allow members to be independent on the Support Center facilities available to members.

Any member campus may request a usercode on the Support Center system for any person at their site. Since this is on the same cluster as Buffalo State College's system, users have access to any software which is on either system. Some campuses are using software available for this purpose.

The Support Center's system and Buffalo State College's VAX 3400 used for all VMS training at the SUNY Training Center. Currently there is a stat-mux supporting Digital VT 340 terminals for training. It is planned that, during the next year, we will be able to add PCs and VAXstations for training at this facility. This will allow for additional training in such products as Pathworks, Word- Perfect, dBASE, etc.

6. Serve as a disaster backup facility for the member institutions.

Comment: The Executive Board is looking into a plan where campuses will be assisted in the development of a disaster backup facility for their campus. This is headed by Ruedi Lienhard. We have a unique opportunity to work together to make disaster backup easier for all of us if we agree to some common system setups.

During the past year, Buffalo State College and the Support Center made plans for campuses which might not be able to get off their A10 in the time frame they planned. Facilities were tested so that a campus could go through their VAX and then to the Support Center VAX to the A10 at Buffalo State College. This was tested and could have been implemented if needed.

One member used Support Center facilities to work on their conversion prior to their system being available. The campus used these facilities for Banner training of their users and started their conversion. There were a few problems that were worked out; and this is a function that should be performed during a disaster at a member site.

7. Serve as a demonstration/test center for various Local Area Network (LAN) techniques.

Comment: Currently, Buffalo State College has running Pathworks.

8. Maintain all required records consistent with a Support Center and as required by vendor or agency contracts.

Comment: The CSSC is going to be re-working the way in which campuses provide information about which systems have what software running on them. We need more cooperation from most sites. We believe this new method will assist the campuses in providing the required information for vendors.

Most of the information is kept in electronic form and will be used as the basis for the reporting requirements. A complete description of the required information is in the CSLG / ESL plans distributed to member campuses at the Fall 1992 COA.

9. Annually publish, to the membership, a complete list of all distributed and supported products with current version numbers and the name of the support person for each product.

In addition to the above areas, the Support Center has assisted campuses inobtaining information on various topics such as terminal emulators, keyboardmapping, system configurations, SUNY-DIGITAL Agreement (CM00224) problems, campusnetworking questions, etc.

4.2 Improvements to services by CSSC support staff


The CSSC Newsletter that was introduced this past year has been the responsibility of SCACAD. With a schedule of producing the newsletter about every two weeks, the newsletter has been a welcomed addition to the benefits of belonging to the Support Center. Many timely subjects have been discussed such as the CSLG program, DECUS tapes, CWIS, special CSSC software prices, Disaster Recovery, CDROM Online Documentation, Site Inventory Surveys, Comparative Budgeting information, Digital Upgrade costs, Viruses and count of calls received by SCACAD, SCADM and SCSYS.

The purchase of three new DECUS CDROMs have been made available to the Support Center members. Currently running are Collection 9, Spring 1991; 10, Fall 1991; and 11, Spring 1992. If the Support Center members wish to access one of the other three CDROMs (Collection 6, Fall 1989; 7, Spring 1990, and 8, Fall 1990) that can be accommodated.

The DOC facility has been an ongoing process for the Support Center. Documentation for the VAX, third-party software, the DECUS tapes and networking have been maintained and continue to grow monthly. All Support Center campuses have been asked to send documentation that might benefit other campuses.

A SCACAD conference is kept in VAX Notes in which questions received by the SCACAD account and answers given are displayed for Support Center campuses.

Training has continued for the SCACAD support person. Pathworks training has been at the top of the list along with training at Cornell's Supercomputer Theory Center.

List server conferences have been included in VAX Notes through the bboard facility. This allows users to view discussion groups in another source besides their Mail directory. Any campus who wishes to include a Bitnet list discussion group into the Support Center's machine VAX Notes are welcomed to send in their suggestions. Many campuses have asked for the bboard program so they can put Bitnet discussion groups into their own VAX Notes. SCACAD has sent information on getting bboard and has offered help in getting it to run.


Improvements to the GETSOFTWARE system for software distribution. A search function was added to better locate new offerings. Automatic packaging from CD-rom for new, seldom used software packages now allow faster availability of new software when the bi-monthly CD's arrive.

Procedures developed to better distribute ULTRIX software.

Added access to DIGITAL's DSN databases for interactive text search for CSSC participating campuses.

Added access to DECUS CDs for CSSC participating campuses.

Developed new system setups (VAX cluster), for highly specialized Training Center (Syracuse) classes.

Expanded SCSYS type support to cover (supported?) data communications questions (CHIPCOM), including possible centralized software distribution.

Implemented procedures to automate the collection and consolidation of CSSC-member software inventories (SIP reports).

We have become the vehicle for the distribution of the LAIP software for LAIP cluster sites.


As can be seen from our annual report on the number of calls by subject, our primary objective remains responding to immediate technical questions. In terms of subject, these questions are primarily from Data Base Administrators (i.e. DBA's). Questions from DBA's represented 64% of total questions during the past year. It should be noted that a significant number of these DBA questions were from new DBA's installing ORACLE on our newer platforms, VM, MVS, SUN, and NETWARE.

It is appropriate to briefly outline current CSSC goals and objectives, and results during the past year.

1. Provide a high service level of response to technical questions (i.e. target of 1-2 hours from original messages). Historically, we have been able to meet this objective for the VMS platform. For the newer platforms, we have had to rely on ORACLE support to maintain reasonable response time (i.e. 1-2 days). It should be noted that this is ORACLE's typical response window for a priority 3 call, which is the lowest priority level). We have had to use ORACLE more for the newer platforms to compliment our lack of in-depth operating systems knowledge for non-VMS platforms.

2. Disaster Recovery Testing for other SUNY campuses.

As part of its mission, the CSSC has been designated as the "hot site" for its member campuses. In case of a disaster which makes it impossible or unreasonable to operate a VAX at a participating campus, the most critical applications could be operated at Buffalo. The assumptions inherent in this are that the essential components of SUNYNet and the local network at the disaster site would still be operational.

The testing objectives were to:

1. Provide an environment allowing HSC users to run their production work from Syracuse on the Buffalo State VAX Cluster. This would demonstrate required network capability.

2. Determine how long it would take for a disaster instance to become operational in Buffalo from time of disaster in the DS.

3. Determine the nature and extent of initial and ongoing technical support from both the disaster site and CSSC staff in order maintain a state of 'Disaster Readiness'.

A series of tests were done using the Syracuse HSC as a prototype. Their entire production system was duplicated and used by HSC users on our CSSC support machine.

3. Applied research and development. During this year our emphasis is on ORACLE's Computer Assisted Software Engineering (i.e. CASE) products. Specifically, the next generation of the Human Resources Management System (HRMS) was selected as a CASE project.

This HRMS project will prove to be a solid test for the CASE tools for the following reasons:

This is because it is significant system (i.e. about 60 tables, about 30 screens, and over 50 reports).

It also involves a legacy system (i.e. a retrofit of about 32 tables inherited from SUNY Central).

It is being developed with very limited resources (one systems analyst and one applications programmer, both assigned part time).

The use of views developed in the project will also become a prototype of the potential of truly end user reporting systems (i.e. without technical personnel between the actual user requesting the report and the system).

4. Strategic Consulting and Training to complement the SUNY Training Center. From time to time we visit campuses and provide ORACLE consulting services and specific training on selected topics. Several times we have connected remotely to other campus machines to perform DBA tasks or analyze problems that could not be resolved otherwise.

4.3 Attainment of goals by Support Center staff

1. The CSSC will respond to a request for assistance within one hour.

All Support Center staff try diligently to reply within an hour only if it is to inform the sender that the message has been received and further time is needed to look into the question.

2. If multiple electronic dialogues are required for a request/response, each dialogue exchange will be incorporated into the previous message sequence set.

All Support Center staff keep a log of all messages received and sent and send this along with the current message going out.

3. Where appropriate, the CSSC will indicate what reference sources were used in developing the response. Where possible, references sources are mentioned.

4. At the completion of request/response activity sequence, the content thereof will be placed in a VAX Notes file. This file will be made available to the member campuses and can be used as a reference resource.

SCACAD is, currently, the only Support Center account which includes messages and replies into the SCACAD conference. SCSYS and SCADM will implement this procedure this next fiscal year.

5. Severity levels included in assistance requests. Four levels of severity have been established and one of these levels should be applied in conjunction with requesting assistance from the CSSC. The CSSC will respond to requests for assistance on a first-in first-out basis within descending order of severity level: 1) system down 2) sub-system down 3) developmental 4) information.

Severity levels are seldom included in messages sent from member campuses. This issue may have to be discussed at the next Support Center committee meeting.

4.4 Volume of E-Mail (by subject) for SCACAD, SCSYS and SCADM

4.5 GETSOFTWARE requests

The count of products transferred from GETSOFTWARE (by Month) for the period July 1992 through June 1993 :

1992Jul           86Aug          158Sep           95Oct          107Nov          112Dec           961993Jan           55Feb          127Mar          222Apr          138May          150Jun          165          ------Total      1,511

5 Hardware Configuration

The following is the equipment available in the Support Center.

      5.1  VAX/VMS            VAX 6000 model 610 128 MB            HSC 70            SA650            TA90     5.2  VAX/Ultrix            MVII 32mb            450MB disk            TK50

5.3 Training Center

In addition Buffalo State College has a VAX 3400 which has been used for training by the SUNY Training Center when course offerings are such that privileges are needed which may cause the cluster to go down. When in this mode the VAX 3400 does not affect the operation of the cluster. Buffalo State College originally acquired this machine to test their software prior to installation on the cluster. This arrangement appears to be sufficient for the functions described herein.

5.4 VAX 4000

A VAX 4000 was installed in the summer of 1991. The purpose of this system was to replace the VAX 3400 and to provide enhanced functionality. Note: this system will only be used under the VMS operating system.

5.5 LAIP

The Support Center Executive Board and the LAIP Program have an agreement with LAIP to upgrade the 6410 that was the Support Center's machine (5.1) to a 6610 and be used on a shared basis between the LAIP Program and the Support Center.

6 Software


A list of software available from Digital through the CSLG/ESL is referenced in the X-DECTEI-L conference in VAX Notes (see notes 39.9 and 51.18).

6.2 Joiner

The Joiner Agreement with SUNY has been going well. Currently the Support Center is a host site for about 25 BITNET campuses. The member campuses have had few or no problems with installation and on-going maintenance with BITNET "links" which the CSSC sends out whenever changes are needed.

6.3 Oracle

The Support Center currently supports and distributes all DEC VMS Oracle software, IBM, MVS and VM; and SUN. Improvements have materialized during the past year of working with Oracle which enable us to obtain correct releases and updates in a timely manner.

The PC versions of Oracle are only distributed with the initial distribution. Campuses are to obtain PC Oracle support from Oracle directly. The Executive Board should investigate this question during the next year. The Oracle contract was re-negotiated and now has a June expiration.

6.4 Third Party Software

(2) for most campuses.  (3) Contact CSSC for license fee

6.5 LAIP, BANNER, LMX software

While we do not support LAIP, BANNER, LMX software, we do distribute it.

7 Budget

The following table represents the financial plan for 93-94. Differences fromthe financial plan presented to the members in the Fall 1989 are:
o    the number of campuses is now set at 23 State Operated and 8 Community     Colleges. o    the distribution of CCUP funds for the Center is changed from $250,000,     $250,000, and $100,000 to $250,000, $150,000, $100,000, and $100,000.

9 Advisory Board Meeting Notes

9.1 June 8, 1993


1.(a) Election of Chair:

Paul Voninski was re-elected chair of the CSSC Executive Committee.

(b) Paul has been in contact with BOA to find a representative for the Executive Committee from the BOA Technology Subcommittee.

(c) Annual Report - is to come

2.(a) The change of the annual charge from $28500-$30000 recommended by the Advisory Committee needs approval by the Executive Committee. $30k is assumed in the budget projections. There is an equipment replacement fund in the budget. Costs are largely fixed, but there are new CSLG costs ($35k); ESL costs remain the same ($30k). DEC only or ORACLE only campuses are allowed in at 55%. There are eleven trial members, so the exact revenue is unknown, given possible new members. Also, ORACLE Corp's change from billing in arrears to billing ahead used up the previous hardware reserve. The CCUP subsidy of $100k disappears. LAIP paid for the upgrade and HSCs and warranty to get a 6610 enabling the CSSC to operate as a backup site and to test/download software and for training. Syracuse actually tested the backup site concept. Details were learned on how to connect. The Support Center will need an ALPHA machine to test new software once campuses begin to transition to the ALPHA.

Is the fee acceptable? A motion was made and seconded approving the budget. The motion was amended to have the CSSC revisit the increase during the year to see if the increase needs to be continued into the future. The motion was passed as amended. The budget increase has been taken to the Business Officers and put on their spreadsheet of recharges.

Minutes are not getting to the Advisory Committee of the CSSC Executive Board meetings. This needs to be corrected.

2.(b)The issue was raised of needing support on Holidays, especially for VMS installs and upgrades. Paul asked for E-mail feedback on this.

3. The CSSC needs to know what the mission critical software services are. Do they include OSF/1? Windows NT? There was less than 100% return on the survey.

The newsletter was very helpful. Readers had to answer to remain on the newsletter ! Those that did not respond were discontinued.

The SICAS Center version of ORACLE is not the same as the version needed by other campuses, such as Plattsburgh, that need to be on the latest version, and other campuses are not running the same version as the SICAS Center. This will be complicated further when the ALPHA machines require a different executable. Can this be improved?

E-mail is a misnomer when it goes over fiber (should be photon-mail).

4. The DEC maintenance agreement is dead. Other options will need to be followed up.

Campuses can join in together to split the cost of the NYSERNET Point of Presence (POP). This allows users to dial-in to any of hundreds of PSI sites around the country from which they can connect without any long distance charges. This can be useful for students on vacation or weekends, for faculty at conferences, or for a variety of other imaginative purposes.

5. Future Issues:

Groups are needed for collective action on specific issues. Volunteers are needed.

The DEC warranty is null and void when there is damage due to water in the computer room if you do not have "recover-all". Is there a better way to manage insurance?

We cannot use 3rd party processing equipment under the CSLG, except by specific DEC waiver, eg. to have it for emergency use.

The CSSC is marketing to acquire new customers to spread the operating costs.

10 Executive Board Meeting Notes

10.1 March 4, 1993


Present: Bob Hemmings, Paul Voninski, Ruedi Lienhard, Eric Wilson, Ron Brown, John Philippo, Sharon Gallagher (recording)

Absent: Bob Wilbert, Carl Kellogg (retired)

The meeting was called to order by Paul Voninski at 9:50 am.


a. Mohawk Valley Community College paid the ORACLE license fee to Central and thought that the license payment included ORACLE support at the Common SUNY Support Center.

Mohawk Valley Community College has no money left to pay $13,750 to Common SUNY Support Center for 1992/93 ORACLE support. MVCC has been asked to work out payment for support to the CSSC. Without payment, CSSC will need to discontinue ORACLE support for MVCC. Without ORACLE support, Mohawk Valley Community College will not have RTN (Right-to-New Versions) as per terms of ORACLE contract CMOO211.

b. Stony Brook will participate as a full member of Support Center in FY 93/94.

c. CSSC membership for SUNY's other Support Centers was discussed. LAIP is a member of the Common SUNY Support Center. The Training Center is not a member of Common SUNY Support Center; however, the two organizations provide quid pro quo services and a balanced contribution exists.

SICAS Center is not a member of either the Training Center or the Common SUNY Support Center and is receiving services from both at no cost. There was a discussion about what CSSC services are used by the SICAS Center and how the two support centers might create a more equitable relationship.

Eric expressed a concern that SICAS Center membership in the Common SUNY Support Center will increase the cost of SICAS membership. This might discourage new members in the SICAS Center.

d. Herkimer is considering a VMS-only membership in the Common SUNY Support Center if such a membership becomes available.

e. It was unclear to the group how Utica/Rome is getting ORACLE support. John Philippo will find out and report to the group.

f. Common SUNY Support Center will not get any CCUP funding in 1993/94. Fees collected from new members will help offset the loss of CCUP funding.

g. Eric Wilson strongly suggested a marketing effort to community colleges and state-operated campuses that are not currently Common SUNY Support Center members.

h. Ron Brown asked if Common SUNY Support Center should develop a program for small VMS campuses like the LAIP database campuses. This type of baseline VMS membership might include support for products such as VMS, GOLDMAIL, TCPWare, PMDF.

The Board is willing to entertain a written proposal from Ron on this.


a. The Support Center faces a $30,000 deficit this FY. This deficit is the result of a deficit carry-over from FY 91/92, nonpayment of FY 92/93 membership fee by Mohawk Valley Community College, and the cost of doing business this year. Half of the deficit can be covered by funds that will be available in FY 93/94.

b. There was a discussion about new CSLG & ESL costs and how they relate to cost of Common SUNY Support Center membership. Paul Voninski expressed concern that this new TEI program creates a perception that the curve between what it costs to join the Common SUNY Support Center with what it costs to get support directly from DEC is closing. Ron indicated that the perception is not reality. The new TEI program raises the cost of the CSLG significantly. Ron indicated that CSSC would send detailed information about this to the membership.

(Chart at end of minutes summarizes costs of DEC's new TEI program)

There was a discussion about the Common SUNY Support Center membership fee for FY 93/94. John Philippo made a motion that the membership fee structure for FY 93/94 be:

Full member $30,000
(Limited member) ORACLE Support $16,500 (55% of full)

In addition to those membership fees, the cost of IFR overhead will be recovered from campuses paying through an IFR as per this scheduled:

          93/94      0%          94/95      5%          95/96     10%          96/97     15%          97/98     16%
Bob Hemmings seconded the motion. It was passed and carried. A letter will need to go out to community colleges communicating the Support Center's plan to recover IFR overhead costs.

c. A discussion followed concerning state contracts with DEC.

The DEC Field Service Contract Amendment has not been approved by Audit & Control and there is a possibility that it will be rejected. Paul Voninski read a letter that John Philippo wrote to Ted Winnie describing the historical reasons for DEC Field Service not being included in CM00224, and the financial ramifications of a rejection of the DEC Contract Amendment (Field Service) to CM00224 that is now on the table. A rejection would create a loss of $500,000 - $1,000,000 in this FY alone. SUNY can still buy hardware maintenance off the CM00129 contract but the prices are higher in that contract than those proposed in the amendment to CM00224. The CM00129 contract expires in two years.


a. Paul Voninski requested that the DEC'S CDs be made available. Ron indicated that the CDs were rarely accessed; however, Ron will be sure the CDs get put up on the system.

b. Paul Voninski stated that his campus was not contacted about the recent VMS Security Alert from DEC. Other members present received e-mail from Common SUNY Support Center on the issue. Since Oswego is on the Common SUNY Support Center distribution list, it is unclear why Oswego did not get the email notice. Paul will investigate with his staff.

c. The Common SUNY Support Center Electronic Newsletter will be published bi-monthly.

d. Annual Report
1991/92 Annual Report was electronically distributed several months ago
1992/93 Annual Report should be ready to present at COA in Fall '93

SUNYNET UPDATE (John Philippo)

a. The T1 circuit for the Morrisville LAIP site is now in.

b. The second T1 backbone is physically in place but is not yet in use except for testing purposes.

c John Philippo distributed a statistic report titled "Data Matrix" describing activity on the SUNY Wellfleet circuits.

John's staff is now doing a study to look at improving design issues for the Wellfleet.

d. Paul Voninski reported that PSI will make the POP connections available as long as six (6) campuses get together and pay $4,000 each. This is a better deal than the Gateway Agreement that SUNY has with PSI.

John Philippo is going to follow-up with PSI to see if this new offer could be available through the PSI Gateway contract.

This topic will be included in an upcoming issue of the Common SUNY Support Center newsletter.

POP connections give the user access to the Internet through a local phone call when you are out of your home/work area.


The Common SUNY Support Center Executive Board needs to replace two retiringmembers: Carl Kellogg and Bob Hemmings.

Two other Executive Board terms expire on June 30, 1993. These seats arecurrently held by Ruedi Lienhard and Paul Voninski.

By-laws state that members who are unable to complete a term can be replaced bythe Board until the next Advisory Committee meeting. Bob Hemmings volunteeredto stay on the Board through June 1993. Because it is late in the year, areplacement for Carl will not be sought.

An election to fill the four open positions on the Executive Board will be heldby e-mail prior to the COA meeting in June 1993. The most votes will determinewho gets the 3-year terms.

John Philippo indicated the importance of having community collegerepresentation on the Board. Bob Hemmings will call Bill Manuel to see if hemight be interested in running for one of the open Executive Board seats.


John reported that the LAIP implementations are back on schedule, and that themachine configuration for the two clusters now in the pipeline (#5 SYR & #6FARM) has changed as a result of DEC's Alpha announcement. A VAX 4000, model400 machine will be purchased "Alpha-ready" to support the Syracuse cluster.

A second real Alpha 4000 machine will be purchased. This will initially beshipped to the Common SUNY Support Center for the installation/test of Alphaand multiLIS. After testing is complete, the machine will be shipped toFarmingdale to support that LAIP cluster.

Carey Hatch has requested a letter of agreement indicating that LAIP owns theshared VAX located at Buffalo State College. Ron Brown will follow-up on thisrequest.


a A site license for the disk defragmenter, "Diskkeeper", can be purchased for less than $1,000 and it does a good job. There was no report on what's happening with RAXCO products as Bob Wilbert was not present.

b. Ron Brown would like to see a group get together to help design a minimal training curriculum for members. The discussion led to the decision that a planning group be formed now to help prepare for transition to ORACLE7, Banner2, and associated issues (Client/Server, Forms 4.0). Sharon Gallagher will spearhead the formation of this Planning Group.

c. Microsoft is not in agreement with all changes made by SUNY to the proposed contract, and the contract is now in Chris Alexander's hands.

d. Vince Kugler is looking for volunteers to work on a WordPerfect contract. Eric Wilson is considering helping with this and will contact Vince.

e. Paul Voninski reported that Apple is now selling OS upgrades of the operating system. Mac TCP is now available to work with the 7.1 operating system. Bob Jewett is working on a site license agreement for Mac TCP.


The LAIP project has decided on 857/867 tapes for back-up. This decision helpsset a standard, and a standard will make back-up at other sites easier in adisaster recovery situation.

Ron Brown feels confident that the Common SUNY Support Center resources couldhave a disaster site up and running within three days.

John Philippo reported that a SUNYSAT study is now underway that explores thepossibility of changing one of SUNYSAT's four channels to a fully Digitalchannel. This would be used for statewide terrestrial back-up.

Eric Wilson stressed the importance of having a disaster recovery planconsidering how dependent the operation is on computing in today's world, aswell as the risks. A warm back-up site at Oneonta is proposed; however, thisis not funded for FY 93/94.

Sharon Gallagher inquired about establishing the Training Center as a warmback-up site. This would help justify and fund extra space needed at theTraining Center while providing a warm back-up site. Syracuse is a centrallocation and is connected directly to the backbone. Sharon will send an e-mailto Dwight Sawin about this possibility.

The SUNY Health Science Center at Syracuse and the Common SUNY Support Centerare now testing disaster recovery readiness.

Paul Voninski also suggested that a second disaster recovery test site beestablished that is a SICAS campus.


Ron Brown suggested having a combined Common SUNY Support Center/TrainingCenter booth at COA. Sharon Gallagher will follow-up with Tom Gazak to get abooth.

Ron Brown reported no success in trying to negotiate with SyBase for SQRsupport. He has contacted them several times but they do not follow-up. Hehas informed the SICAS Center that SQR support is not available through theCommon SUNY Support Center.

The Common SUNY Support Center Executive Board will meet at 7:00pm on June 6,1993 at the Sheraton.

The meeting was adjourned at 2:10pm.

10.2 June 6th, 1993


In attendance: Ron Brown, Sharon Gallagher, Bob Hemmings, John Philippo, Paul Voninski, Bob Wilbert, Eric Wilson

The meeting started at 7:05 p.m.

1. Paul reviewed the proposed agenda for the CSSC Advisory Committee meetingto be held at the SUNY Technology Conference on June 8, 1993.

2. We reviewed the method for electing the CSSC Board Chair; refer to the By-Laws section 5-4.

3. Paul suggested that the next Board meeting should be held in Buffalo at theCSSC and suggested a mid-September time frame. (The date for the meeting waslater set to be Wednesday September 15th in Buffalo; time and room to beannounced).

4. Paul reminded the Board that the CSSC Annual Report is due to be issued inAugust.

5. Ron passed out membership status reports, expense reports and draft budgetreports for the current and up-coming fiscal year. Due to the large number ofcurrent trial members it was difficult to predict at this stage how next year'sbudget would look. A discussion was held about each trial member and thespecifics of their individual situations. Ron reported that his campus was ableto get the IFR fees for Community Colleges reduced from 16% to about 9.6% (Ronwasn't sure of the exact figure). There was general consensus that unexpended92-93 IFR funds, if any, should be rolled over into the hardware replacementfund, since we have not been able to place funds into this status here-to-foredue to imbalances between expenses and revenues.

6. Bob Hemmings raised concerns about the adequacy of CSSC staffing levelsshould all, or a large number, of the trial members become actual members. TheBoard agreed on the need to watch this situation and to discuss it at theSeptember meeting, at which time we would have better information.

7. Ron raised the point that our DEC contact (under DEC's reading of theconsultant provision) would allow us to retain one DEC consultant per $4M worthof business (we, SUNY, did about $8M last year) and that this should be lookedat in combination with item 6. Run further stated that the heaviest part of theCSSC workload is on system/programmer VMS support (due to LAIP in large part).

8. The Board discussed the idea of surveying the member campuses on the coresoftware (from amongst the CSLG portfolio) the CSSC should concentrate on.

9. Ron reported that their has been no response from the SICAS group on theproposal concerning Oracle versions support.

10. An idea was raised to look at a one day meeting of the entire CSSC AdvisoryCommittee jointly with the Board to review some of the larger more complex issueswe are exploring. Such a meeting might be held on the day prior to the fallWizard session.

The meeting was adjourned at approximately 9:00 p.m.
