    10. fuel code freeze is now 3 days late and no new news (bobmonkman, 15:05:48)
    11. fuel 8 is a dependecny of Openstack Liberty (bobmonkman, 15:07:24)

    14. Enea working on HA configuration and having issues with having all 3 controllers working (bobmonkman, 15:11:03)
    15. Corosync seems to be a problem part of the HA configuration (bobmonkman, 15:11:24)
    16. putting the repos together for Fuel 7 and 8 to prepare images once the Fuel update is done (bobmonkman, 15:12:01)
    17. pacemaker may actually be the issue (bobmonkman, 15:13:54)
    18. Cobbler discussion (bobmonkman, 15:14:06)
    19. Fuel requires patches in a number of places and in order to intergated everything together for ARM libraries (bobmonkman, 15:15:02)
    20. Fuel has only a few patches in the official build, but, for ARM, a number of other patches are required. (bobmonkman, 15:16:51)
    21. either we have to have our own Fuel repo or we have to push our changes into the official OPNFV build (bobmonkman, 15:17:27)
    22. the imminent code freeze of Fuel 8 may prevent us from getting our patches officially in the release (bobmonkman, 15:18:49)
    23. capturing a conversation between ciprian and stan (joekidder_, 15:21:56)
    24. ciprian: [about HA config using Arno SR1 in Pharos Lab] the problem might be in the higher level, pacemaker (joekidder_, 15:23:11)
    25. ciprian (bobmonkman, 15:24:11)
    26. ciprian: which uses corosync as a communication infrastructure (joekidder_, 15:24:18)
    27. stan: Ciprian, by any chance you had problems with pcs tool? (joekidder_, 15:24:41)
    28. ciprian: Stan: we haven't meddled with pcs too much, we are trying to figure out what are the overall building blocks and how they are supposed to work (joekidder_, 15:25:46)
    29. ciprian: right now the problem is with haproxy which fails to start on two of the 3 controllers (joekidder_, 15:26:04)
    30. Status on Orange ARM Pod (bobmonkman, 15:26:32)
    31. Orange has the 5 servers installed and booted (bobmonkman, 15:26:49)
    32. ciprian: some virtual interfaces seem to be missing, we are currently comparing against an x86 Arno SR1 installation to see what doesn't work (joekidder_, 15:26:55)
    33. stan: we had problems with haproxy when there was a race condition between openstack services and HAProxy, since by default the services tried to bind to in debian packages. (joekidder_, 15:27:11)
    34. stan: and puppet bailed when haproxy was not able to start (joekidder_, 15:27:23)
    35. but Orange team is heads down on getting b release ot on current pods (bobmonkman, 15:27:37)
    36. ciprian: Stan: in our case puppet stopped after failing to start haproxy (joekidder_, 15:27:45)
    37. ciprian: but in our case the interfaces are correct, it looks (joekidder_, 15:27:57)
    38. ciprian: the log shows that haproxy cannot bind to different IPs and ports, no mention ofthe default IP (joekidder_, 15:28:12)
    39. ...and that's the gist of the ciprian/stan conversation about HA. (joekidder_, 15:29:38)
    40. Orange will not begin on ARM pods until after B release is done and all issues are resolved in Enea lab (bobmonkman, 15:30:04)
    41. status on ATT Lab (bobmonkman, 15:30:50)
    42. still working on wiring and network configuration (bobmonkman, 15:31:04)
    43. no schedule estimate yet (bobmonkman, 15:32:00)
    44. discussion on what happens to Armband after B release (bobmonkman, 15:37:28)
    45. Bob proposal is that we gradually transition to a working group concept where we are purely facilitating ARM stakeholders but all code and build support is folded into standard OPNFV repos and practises (bobmonkman, 15:38:35)
    46. broad agreement seems to be there for this idea (bobmonkman, 15:39:07)
    47. question came up as to what happens if armband has stable Fuel 7 but Fual 8 is not ready and B release goes out? (bobmonkman, 15:50:27)
    48. bob will try to make the case that Armband is ready and ask for the blessing to be considered ready based on Fuel 7 (bobmonkman, 15:51:25)
    49. but since Openstack version is tied to Fuel version, so we just need to keep working on Fuel 8 and make a decision if we run into significant roadblocks (bobmonkman, 15:56:59)

Meeting ended at 16:00:24 UTC (full logs).
