3.3 Ensure that full, verified tape backups of any existing network Servers are made prior to the commencement of the works. In the event of unforeseen difficulties we may have to use these backups to restore Servers to their previous state. The Customer is therefore responsible for any loss of data due to failure, or incompleteness, of any backup tapes provided.

3.4 Provide us with a network administrator user’s logon identity and password for all existing Servers to be accessed.

4 Hardware

4.1 The minimum specification for Workstations should be determined in relation to the Software Applications required to be installed on the Workstation.

5 Software Application Installation

5.1 We will use reasonable endeavours to ensure that any Third Party Software supplied for inclusion on systems in installed in accordance with the requirements of the Customer. Where this is not possible due to limitations of the Hardware and/or Software the Customer will be informed at the earliest possible opportunity.

5.2 Where existing Software Applications are migrated from existing systems the Applications will be migrated on an “as exists” basis and any issues with the existing Software will not be investigated or rectified.
