Applied Groups: System Administrators

The Systems Admin Group's key functions include the maintenance of the physical machines used by the Earlham Computer Science Department. They handle both the hardware and software side of Earlham's Computer Science systems. The students in the sysadmin group configure and manage the machines, computational clusters, and networks that are used in classes, for our research, and for use by other science departments at Earlham. This includes working with virtual machines, creating new users, installing new hardware, installing software packages, database administration, network configuration and firewall management. They also are responsible for the CS department’s link to the campus’ Internet2 connection.
