15:08:24 <AlexAvadanii> #info once merged, schema/jinjs2 should pass for all pods

15:12:14 <fdegir> #info There is a proposal from Guillermo regarding PDF
15:12:24 <fdegir> #link https://gerrit.opnfv.org/gerrit/#/c/49213/
15:13:02 <fdegir> #info In order for us to have something official, it is important to have all PDFs/IDFs created based on current/official PDF/IDF templates, pharos repo tagged, and then the new proposal can be discussed within the community
15:14:05 <fdegir> #info The pharos repo can be tagged once all the PDF/IDF are ready and verified by CI
15:15:08 <fdegir> #info Small changes are needed to support PDFs for vPODs as well

15:16:35 <AlexAvadanii> #info vPDF support proposal
15:16:40 <fdegir> #info vPOD support can be introduced once the PDF for BM is officially released
15:16:47 <Julien-zte> agree

15:18:15 <fdegir> #info First 5 ARM servers have been shipped last week - they should be delivered during this week
15:18:44 <fdegir> #info Everything else arrived already - cables, etc.
15:18:56 <fdegir> #info One full rack of servers have been turned on
15:19:44 <rpaik> #info the 5 ARM servers are schedule to arrive on January 31 (Wed)

15:22:13 <fdegir> #info Parker/Sawyer demonstrating LaaS MVP
15:22:15 <fdegir> #link https://jira.opnfv.org/browse/PHAROS-318
15:27:32 <fdegir> #info vPODs can be booked via dashboard with the distro selected by user; ubuntu, centos, opensuse
15:28:22 <fdegir> #info frankbrockners asks that it would be useful/needed to give users access to console
15:28:51 <fdegir> #info This needs further investigation as the work currently focuses on bringing MVP up
15:29:45 <fdegir> #info Once the OS is flashed on the machine, the email notification can be sent to requesting user
15:30:04 <fdegir> #info Dashboard needs to be updated to send the notification
15:30:47 <fdegir> #info IPMI is used for power control and FOG is used for flashing OS on the machines
15:37:16 <fdegir> #info Infra WG needs to come up with policy regarding the limitations; how many resources a user can book for how long and possible extensions, etc.
15:37:53 <Julien-zte> this can be added in the pharos dashboard
15:38:11 <fdegir> #info There will probably be other things that need to be set like changing the networking and so on
15:38:54 <AlexAvadanii> #link this might be useful for consoles if you write a proxy for SOL over IPMI - https://github.com/openstack/pyghmi
15:40:33 <Julien-zte> do we consider to use MAAS as the OS provision tool? It's quick than normal PXE does.
15:41:21 <Sawyer> Something we could consider for the console is simply setting a bios password and making *just* the remote console available through IPMI. This would basically give just keyboard and mouse to the user as well as monitor output
15:42:43 <fdegir> #info It might be useful to open the LaaS MVP "prototype" to limited no of users to start collecting feedback
15:42:57 <fdegir> #info But before this happens, dashboard needs few updates
15:43:46 <fdegir> #info First 20 servers are powered up and they can be made available on the dashboard during coming days
15:45:58 <AlexAvadanii> does FOG support UEFI? a quick look at it shows bios support, but no uefi
15:46:58 <AlexAvadanii> I also +1 MaaS (or even better ironic) as baremetal provisioner support
15:47:13 <fdegir> https://wiki.opnfv.org/display/pharos/Intel+OPNFV+Community+Lab+AUP
15:47:24 <fdegir> https://etherpad.opnfv.org/p/laas-mvp-protototype-feedback
15:48:54 <Sawyer> @AlexAvadanii It does support UEFI through simply pxe booting an efi image. After ipxe.efi (or another chainloader) is pxe booted, it's pretty much same between bios and uefi with the only difference being how partitions are handled. The partition scheme is left untouched by fog, so all the servers use gpt on the raid array and fog just sends them the images to write
15:48:54 <collabot`> Sawyer: Error: "AlexAvadanii" is not a valid command.
15:49:53 <fdegir> #info The AUP written by jmorgan1 for Intel lab can be used as an example
15:49:59 <fdegir> #link https://wiki.opnfv.org/display/pharos/Intel+OPNFV+Community+Lab+AUP
15:50:10 <AlexAvadanii> Sawyer: got it. btw, ipxe is (or was) broken on aarch64, that was my concern. ironic relies on ipxe too, maas does not
15:50:27 <fdegir> #info The etherpad to use for initial LaaS MVP prototype users is
15:50:34 <fdegir> #link https://etherpad.opnfv.org/p/laas-mvp-protototype-feedback
15:50:37 <Sawyer> In what way is it broken?
15:51:24 <AlexAvadanii> Sawyer: I'm not sure. Dan Radez said he found it to be very tricky to use and we should look at it at some point. since we (Fuel/Armband) don't use it yet, I don't know more
15:52:10 <fdegir> #info Once the LaaS MVP is opened up for the use of the community, working on static baremetal POD can proceed as the next step
15:52:51 <Sawyer> We found some bugs, but so far nothing that's completely blocked using it. We're definitely looking into alternatives  to minimize boot time, however
15:52:53 <radez> AlexAvadanii: Sawyer: we've ironed out a lot of the trouble now, been getting very consistent installs via pxe on aarch64 latley
15:52:53 <AlexAvadanii> however, ipxe might be fixed in the latest CentOS release
15:53:26 <AlexAvadanii> radez: that's awesome! we want to add ironic support to Fuel, and that was a big question mark
15:53:41 <radez> oh you said ipxe, yes have had trouble with it. I don't think we have a uefi ipxe image
15:53:45 <radez> sry misread that
15:54:12 <radez> it can be built but I haven't gotten it to build and work yet
15:54:20 <Julien-zte> Is anyone working on pxe on arm boad?
15:54:40 <radez> tripleo defaults to ipxe, we reconfigure it to use pxe
15:54:52 <Sawyer> We don't have any of the new machines yet so we haven't gotten a chance to really do so, we will have a chance once they arrive
15:55:12 <AlexAvadanii> Julien-zte: pxe has been working using grub-efi on AArch64 for a few years, so maas already works fine out of the box. only ipxe has some issues
15:55:22 <Julien-zte> we happened too many issues on arm board.
15:55:40 <Julien-zte> AlexAvadanii, I don't try MAAS for now on ARM
15:56:48 <AlexAvadanii> Julien-zte: not a big fan on MaaS. but it does work fine on ARM (tested using Fuel & Joid)
15:56:55 <fdegir> #info LaaS will be first standing topic for upcoming Infra WG meetings
