Because the IPs are not static, excpet for the NFS/NIS server, unplugging a workstation for a long time may cause the IP to change and break user login. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if this happens.
SBGrid's comprehensive collections of structural biology applications is located in the /programs directory.
The NFS server home data is backed up to a local external hard drive. A cron job runs every hour and syncs the data. This should be checked monthly to ensure that backups are working.
Support for office computing is provided by local Genzyme IT.
