     20 * archive_using_mda.py script fails due to Utah firewall preventing samba mounts from outside the Utah Network. CNRI uses samba mounts as a user workspace to which INSTOOLS dumps its data.
     21 * various rspec are used in the docs/README which are not part of the rspec delivered as part of the package.
     22 * creating a UKY and Utah tunnel experiment with the file rspecs/tunnel-rspec causes an exception in the Flack client.

     283=== Archive Measuraments ===
     284All measurament data can be archived to the [http://groups.geni.net/geni/wiki/DigitalObjectRegistry CNRI Digital Object Repository project] (DOR) with the archive_using_mda.py script which uploads the INSTOOLS data (tarball containing INSTOOLS data in RRD,HTML and PNG format ) with a METADATA.txt file with details about the tar file contents. To uniquely identify
     285each archive, a time stamp is also included in the metadata.txt file.

     287To save this data into the Digital archive space a user account for the [http://mda.doregistry.org/ MDA] must be requested pior to using the script by sending an email request to Giridhar Manepalli (gmanepalli@cnri.reston.va.us).  Once you have an account, you can store your measuraments as follows:
     288{{{
     289./archive_using_mda.py -m https://www.emulab.net/protogeni/xmlrpc/cm -n slicename}}}
