...that's "port" availability... This spreadhseet provided by Chris Small on 7/30 as followup on the installation plan.

Outstanding issues:

Chris asks: "Is there any need for the second IP on the servers to be on a seperate vlan? I added additional IP allocations in the if this is not needed."

John DeHart asks if GRNOC could modify rc.local file on node that already shipped to make a fix for the CP backdoor. Chris agreed GRNOC could do this.

Chris, please update ticket when each issue is resolved.

SPP installation at WASH taking place now. John DeHart was able to connect to the controller via the back door.

Physical installation is done but SPP node is not yet usable. May need on-site attention.

From John Dehart (SPP at WUSTL) on node-ops Aug. 20th:

Now that the physical install of the WASH node is done, how do we proceed? The SPP portion of the WASH node is still unusable because of a problem that is probably going to need on-site attention. What is the procedure for knowing when someone is going to be on-site at the WASH node and how do we communicate our needs to them?

Dave Zar, John DeHart, and Chris Small are putting together list of parts and procedures for troubleshooting and fixing the connection between the HUB SFP 1/8 (slot 1) and the NPE NPU-B (slot 5) and any other noted installation issues that require hands-on work. Chris Tracy will be there on 8/27, and John will ship parts directly to him. Looks likely to just be a mis-connected cable, based on the rack photos, but will send spare parts as well, just in case.

John DeHart also reports that packets are flowing from the WASH SPP back to his network interface at WUSTL.

John DeHart has been able to connect SPP to the ProtoGENI switch. Hopes to be fully functional on Thursday when Chris Tracy visits the site.

Chris Tracy swapped cables and ports and the HUB-NPE connection is now up. The netgear switch console now works as well. Initial testing (slice creation on the NPE which loops packets through the ProtoGENI switch and UDP tunnels to the SPP I2 interfaces) has been performed and SPP node 1 seems to be operable.
