Legacy MBARI software testing on new operating systems and
Project Manager: Todd Ruston
The HP-Unix systems that run the ROV control and data collection software
will no longer be supported by HP. Parts for these machines are becoming
harder to find, and support for the
operating systems will be phased out. Available
replacement hardware requires new operating system software, HP-UX 11i.
Compatibility of MBARI developed software with the new system software is
not guaranteed, and testing and updating should be done before a system
failure requires an emergency replacement with a new operating system.
This project is intended to allocate
time for coordination between software developers and IS on testing and
planning for the future support of existing MBARI-developed software
running on affected platforms.
