Abstract : The key objective for this contract was to improve three areas of the Corbus system: installation, persistent data storage, and the graphical tools which view and modify Corbus configuration information. Improving the installation process was accomplished at two levels. First, the Corbus hierarchy was reorganized in a manner which made it more difficult to install Corbus incorrectly. Second, the steps necessary to install Corbus have been reduced to a simple one step process. The persistent data storage improvements made it possible for the data managed by the Corbus servers to be moved from one machine to another, even if those two machines were running different operating systems. Finally, we improved the Corbus graphical tools so that they now use a toolkit which is supported on all the platforms that support Corbus.
