Corporate Time server upgrade

November 4, 2003

On Aug 20 SCS upgraded the hardware, operating sytem, and server software for Corporate Time.

The hardware replaced will result in fewer failures due to disk space and hardware problems. The new hardware will also have better response time and throughput than the older hardware.

The server software (V5.4) will provide better integration with Andrew's Corp Time environment and still be compatible with existing clients.

On the client side there is a new web interface available at (off-site link, will open in a new window).

There are new clients; however it is not necessary to have a new client to take advantage of the new server. Clients are available from (off-site link, will open in a new window).

Accounts, passwords, users, and resources will be the same before and after the upgrade.
