galaxy is an old backup machine that should be deprecated or repurposed, as our backups are now somewhere else. Can't hurt to double-check nothing legacy is left on that box we might still need and that's available nowhere else.

Do we have a concrete use for repurposing? Adding Cloph to Cc

As per last team call:

 * QUESTION: status galaxy
    → no longer used since june 2016 AFAICT (was used for an old backup PC instance)
    -> check it for Pootle suitability, and if not suitable, Florian to cancel it 

#3 Updated by Florian Effenberger 6 months ago

Looking at Dwayne's feedback, the old galaxy, due to lower RAM and no SSD, is not suitable for Pootle in any case
Is that correct?

Is there still any data on the box, or can I check with manitu on the cancellation?
Can you confirm?

#4 Updated by Guilhem Moulin 6 months ago

No one seems to have put anything worthwhile in their homedir, and the machine has been idling for ages. I'd say just go ahead with the cancellation.

#5 Updated by Guilhem Moulin 6 months ago

I mean the only relevant data on that box is the backuppc stuff, but we have more recent backups on berta.

Mailed manitu how to proceed
