12Hello Nick,
13
14My name is Luisa Nevers and I work at BBN. I am currently looking at FlowVisor 0.8.1.2
15for the GENI Integration Release.    I have some questions and feedback about the
16https://openflow.stanford.edu/display/flowvisor/fv_deploy   page.    I followed the
17instructions for a FlowVisor Ubuntu package install and configuration on a new system
18and have run into these issues/questions:
19
201. Page points to  file /usr/local/etc/flowvisor/flowvisor-config.xml,
21  but file tha is delivered has different name and path /usr/etc/flowvisor/config.xml.
22
232. Several mismatched paths are found:
24    /usr/local/sbin/  should be /usr/sbin/
25  /usr/local/etc/flowvisor/ should be /usr/etc/flowvisor/
26
273a. If a user follow the" install ubuntu package and configure" path,  the instructions jump into
28    using  a password, but no instructions are given to set/generate a FlowVisor password.
29
303b.  Also missing when following the " install ubuntu package and configure" path, are steps to set the
31       user/group for the flowvisor.
32   
33In the "source"  sections there are instructions to generate a configuration which allows the user to
34set the password.  Should the user generate the configuration when they install from Ubuntu
35package and  overwrite the example provided to define a password and user/group?
36
374. If a user follow the" install ubuntu package and configure" path and runs the example invocation for
38   flowvisor,  they will set the  SSL_KEYPASSWD=CHANGEME_PASSWD in the  /usr/etc/flowvisor/envs.sh file.
39   Should there be instructions  to modify this variable?    Although this is in the clear and not secure.
40
415. Is this still appropriate? Flowvisor 0.8.1.2 reports  "FlowVisor version: flowvisor-0.8.1".
42
43One more question, do you want bug reports for any of the above?
44
45Thank You,
46
