This VM server is one of the open root servers for SIG SysAdmin, where members of the SIG can play around, learn, and work on projects without worrying about messing up a working mission critical server. All files on the server should be backed up elsewhere; this is important as this server could get wiped at any time or made inoperable without an OS re-installation. Those who want access should join the SIG and request access. An ACM account is needed. The initial setup is minimal so further setup might be needed to make some basic functions work. Additional information about the ACM network or further access to some systems may be needed for some projects, ask an Admin if you need it, integration of one system into or with another is an important skill to learn.
