Sinds eind 2019 heeft C&amp;CZ [https://wiki.cncz.science.ru.nl/index.php?title=Diskruimte&setlang=nl#Ceph_Storage Ceph] als keus voor de opslag van data, naast de traditionele RAID-opslag op individuele fileservers. Omdat er steeds meer gebruik gemaakt wordt van Ceph, is de Ceph-opslag uitgebreid van bruto 1.8 PiB naar 2.8 PiB. Hierbij zijn ook servers geplaatst in een centraal RU-datacentrum, waardoor de Ceph-opslag nu verdeeld is over drie datacentra. Wie wil proberen of Ceph voordelen heeft, kan [[Contact|contact opnemen met C&CZ]].

Omdat [https://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/BitTorrent BitTorrent] als een beveiligingsrisico (malware/reputatieschade) wordt beschouwd en het vrijwel uitsluitend gebruikt wordt voor illegale downloads, heeft het RU Security Operations Center (SOC) voorgesteld om dit type netwerkverkeer te blokkeren binnen de RU. Mocht dit problemen opleveren voor onderzoek of onderwijs, dan horen we dit graag, dan kunnen we dit melden bij het SOC en evt. een uitzondering aanvragen.

C&CZ maakt voor het merendeel van de services gebruik van [https://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vrije_software vrije software] en [https://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Opensourcesoftware opensourcesoftware]. Daarom is al enige tijd geleden het idee ontstaan dat de C&CZ-medewerkers elk jaar zouden stemmen welke projecten een donatie van C&CZ zouden krijgen. Dit jaar is de keus gevallen op [https://foundation.mozilla.org/nl/ de Mozilla Foundation]. Veel mensen zullen de webbrowser [https://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mozilla_Firefox Mozilla Firefox] en de mailclient [https://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mozilla_Thunderbird Mozilla Thunderbird] kennen en er misschien elke dag urenlang gebruik van maken.

Per 11 oktober 2021 draagt C&CZ het beheer van de vaste data-aansluitpunten (network outlets, switchpoorten) in de FNWI-gebouwen (Huygens, Mercator, HFML/FELIX, Goudsmit, Proeftuin) over aan [https://www.ru.nl/ict/ ISC netwerken]. Dit betreft zowel het activeren/deactiveren van een outlet (patching) als het aanpassen van instellingen of het oplossen van storingen. Het verzorgen van de IP-adressen (DNS/DHCP) en de afscherming/beveiliging d.m.v. Access Control Lists blijven wel bij [[Contact|C&CZ]]. Alle verzoeken en storingen met betrekking tot data-aansluitpunten kunnen dus per 11 oktober gericht worden aan de Helpdesk van het ISC, via mail naar icthelpdesk@ru.nl of telefonisch naar (024-36) 22222.

This concerns both activating/deactivating an outlet (patching) and adjusting settings or solving malfunctions. Taking care of the IP addresses (DNS/DHCP) and the shielding/security by means of Access Control Lists will remain with [[Contact|C&CZ]]. All requests and malfunctions relating to data connection points can therefore be addressed to the Helpdesk of the ISC as of October 11, by mail to icthelpdesk@ru.nl or by telephone to (024-36) 22222.

PCs in Study Area and Library of Science

Since the summer of 2021, the computers in the Faculty of Science Study Area (HG00.201) and the Library of Science (HG00.011) are no longer being managed by C&CZ, but by the ISC (RU ICT Service Centre). That makes all Windows computers in all RU Study Areas and Library locations uniform. Technical contact now is is the ICT Helpdesk: 024-3622222, . General information about the Library of Science (such as opening hours and reservation of a study place), can be found at the Library of Science website.
In addition to these Windows-only computers, eight Linux-only computers, that are managed by C&CZ, are available in the front of the Study Area (HG00.201).

Expansion of Science datacenter to Forum building

Because FNWI research groups are increasingly purchasing powerful computers/computing clusters with many CPUs and GPUs, C&CZ has expanded the data center to the existing server room of Radboud Services, in the Forum on the other side of Heijendaalseweg. As a result, there will be sufficient physical space, power and cooling for the servers purchased by departments in the coming years.

Mailman lists sender address change: from sender to list address

DMARC is increasingly being used as a spamfilter, checking whether the sender ought to send mail via this route. To comply with this for mail sent through Mailman, we will change the From: sender address to the list address. The current:

> From: Some User <>
> Sender: "listname" <>

will be changed to:

> From: Some User via listname <>
> Reply-To: Some User <>
> Sender: "listname" <>

If you filter or forward mail automatically, you might need to change the filter.

The default login server (lilo.science.ru.nl) points to lilo7 with Ubuntu 20.04 LTS, but lilo6 with Ubuntu 18.04 LTS will remain available until support for this version ends in 2023. The signatures of the C&CZ loginservers can be checked. Please also check these tips for improving your SSH settings tips for improving your SSH settings.

Matlab R2021a available

The latest version of Matlab, R2021a, is available for departments that have licenses. The software and license codes can be obtained through a mail to postmaster for those entitled to it. The software can also be found on the install-disc. All C&CZ-managed Linux machines will soon have this version installed, an older version (/opt/matlab-R2020a/bin/matlab) is still available temporarily. The C&CZ-managed Windows machines will not receive a new version during the semester to prevent problems with version dependencies in current lectures.

Signed SSH keys for loginservers and compute clusternodes

From now on, C&CZ signs the SSH keys of e.g. loginservers and compute clusternodes. That makes it possible for users, as explained on that page, to add the public signing key in the private .ssh/known_hosts, which makes one trust all C&CZ signed SSH servers. Whenever C&CZ deploys a new 'lilo', the question whether this might be spoofing will not occur then.

New improved installation methods for Matlab

The old installation method, used with Matlab R2020b, highlighted several problems for some users. The solution was found in a different installation method. Some users will prefer the new method, others the old one. Each has its pros and cons. The new installation method makes Matlab easy to install, also for older versions and can be done with a small download if you only want a few toolboxes. But it requires signing in at The MathWorks and thus has a more complex workflow. The old installation method does not require registration and has an easy workflow, but it always requires a large download and non-expert macOS users will find it troublesome because the newest macOS version will quarantine the download.
