How to Prepare: IT Information Needed


Ok, you wonderful IT staff! It's your week to prepare!

As we move from project planning into the system setup phase of the migration project, we will begin to request important information from CCS libraries related to setup and profiling. In last week’s Migration Update, we shared an Acquisitions and Serials survey (due May 31). The information gathered from that survey will play a key role in profiling and workflow consultations.

This week, we are asking IT staff to start compiling information related to network and workstation configuration. This information will be used by Polaris (domain names and workstation names) during the setup process or by CCS to ensure we are configuring the new system correctly.

By June 9, 2017, we are asking each library to submit the following information, in Excel, Visio or Word format:

Network topology Bandwidth speed of staff network Firewall configuration A list of all staff workstation names Network domain names

Workstation and domain names will be used as part of the Polaris authentication process, and will be shared with Polaris. Network, bandwidth, and firewall information will be used by CCS staff to ensure proper configuration of Polaris, but will not be shared with Polaris staff.
