Status Report on Production REDDnet Deployment

Locally at ACCRE we have been working to implement a production REDDnet deployment. This deployment has hit a snag: we have run into a problem with the linux driver for the on-board network device on the motherboards of the new depots. A report will be made on the status of this issue. There had been some hope of finding a more up-to-date driver, but this appears not to fix the problem, so we are likely to go on to plan B: put new "stand alone" network cards in the depots. We know this works on the older capricorn depots, and are in the process of evaluating network cards, including the one that is known to work in the capricorn depots (but which is expensive).

We hope to be able to deploy new network cards in the depots the first week of February.

In the meantime, we plan to deploy a network of depots based on the many capricorn depots that we have, according the following timeline:

Jan 11 (Today)

  • Stable TVNA
    • Provide additional temporary TVNA box
    • Setup and deploy L-Server, Chord, and StorCore(Larry+Bobby)
    • deploy 10 or more CapTech depots with a 3 month max allocation duration (Alan + Bobby).
  • Stable REDDnet (almost)
    • Setup and deploy L-Server, Chord, and StorCore(Larry+Bobby)
    • Bring up 2 or more campus CapTech depots (2 in physics, 2 at phoebe's, and 2 at accre. 4 Umich depots are a possibility as well) with a 3 month max duration(alan+Bobby)
  • Report on SC depot problem (Mat) and discuss options on REDDnet call. Based on the outcome we will then start the REDDNet depot deployment
