Shuse At Two: Multi-Host Account Administration

Henry Spencer
SP Systems


The Shuse multi-host account administration system is now two years old, and clearly a success. It is managing a user population of 20,000+ at Sheridan College, and a smaller but more demanding population at a local ``wholesaler'' ISP, Cancom. This paper reviews some of the experiences along the way, and attempts to draw some lessons from them.
