     45The DOME software has been completed. This includes:
    46461) Final testing of the ability to run user-defined experiments in a virtual
    4747environment on the bricks (computers on the buses).
     
    5858re-imaging and re-installing the hard drives on all bricks.
    59597)  DOME completed its integration with ORCA;  the ability to distribute actors
    60 between UMass and RENCI was verified.[[BR]]

    62 We have announced the availability of DOME to external GENI researchers.

     60between UMass and RENCI was verified.
     618)  We implemented DOLPHIN, a lightweight scheduler that allows us to
    6462temporarily take ORCA offline to perform maintenance and install ORCA
    6563updates without disrupting DOME on the buses.
    66 • Documentation and software was posted to the portal.
    67 o Various utilities to reduce the size of partitions, test the launching of
    68 experiments, generate log files, etc. were made available.
    69 o Examples of experiments, methods to access devices, etc. were posted on
    70 the portal.
    71 o Documentation was written and placed to the portal. This included
    72 documentation so that users can have their own development bricks.
    73 • DOME's virtualization capabilities were demonstrated at GEC5. We showed the
     649)  DOME's virtualization capabilities were demonstrated at GEC5. We showed the
    7465ability to schedule and launch experiments on a DOME brick. This was done
    7566using ORCA as the framework.
    76 • An MOU was agreed upon with the UMass Office of Information Technology
    77 (OIT) regarding connecting Internet2 to the DOME and ViSE servers, along with
    78 VLAN access.

    132131Layer 3 Connectivity:  IP access will be through UMass Amherst's campus network, using their public IP addresses.

    134 Layer 2 Connectivity:  There is currently no usable layer2 connection to the UMass Amherst lab available for GENI.  The project is investigating the possibility of installing local fiber that could enable a connection to NLR through an appropriate regional network.  If installed this fiber would support both the [wiki:DOME] and [wiki:ViSE] projects in Spiral 1 and in later stages that include support for mobile nodes.  Layer 2 ethernets will not extend to the !DieselNet nodes, due to limitations in the existing deployed systems, but IP tunnels to the layer 2 VLAN termination points should be feasible for connecting mobile endpoints to the GENI virtual ethernets.
