Managed Linux Workstations
The managed Linux service provides a standardized Linux software image, which the Computer Officers can install onto suitable desktop hardware owned by research groups. A set of commonly used applications is provided and others can be added on request. The Computer Officers handle maintenance such as account management, installing security patches and upgrading the machines to newer versions of Linux.
We encourage all Linux users in the department to use this service as the Computer Officers are able to give a much higher level of support to managed machines.
If you want to put a workstation onto the service please contact the helpdesk on firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have a list of frequently asked questions.
