    31 The GPO currently recommends version 0.8.1 (the latest stable release) for GENI sites. There are many changes from 0.8 to 0.6, and we recommend working with the GPO to help the upgrade process go smoothly. Contact us at gpo-infra@geni.net and we'll be happy to help!
     31The GPO currently recommends version 0.8.2 (the latest stable release) for GENI sites. There are many changes from 0.8 to 0.6, and we recommend working with the GPO to help the upgrade process go smoothly. Contact us at gpo-infra@geni.net and we'll be happy to help!

    3333NOTE that much of this page is FOAM 0.8 specific. http://groups.geni.net/geni/wiki/OpenFlow/FOAM?version=22 has the last 0.6 specific version.

     35== Initial configuration ==
     36
     37When you install FOAM for the first time (i.e. not an upgrade to an existing installation), you should configure FlowVisor and e-mail; those steps are part of the official [https://openflow.stanford.edu/display/FOAM/0.8.x+Install+Guide FOAM 0.8 install guide].
     38
     39For GENI purposes, we recommend also configuring your site tag, admin e-mail (which causes it to show up in sliverstatus), and max lease:
     40
     41 * Your site tag should be something that uniquely identifies this FOAM instance. We use foam.gpolab.bbn.com (a CNAME that points to our FOAM server) at BBN.
     42 * The admin e-mail setting should generally be the same address you used when you set up e-mail. We use foam-admin@gpolab.bbn.com (a list with a couple of admins on it) at BBN.
     43 * The max lease setting controls how the maximum value of the sliver expiration date (e.g. when an experimenter does a renewsliver). We use 9000 hours (about a year) at BBN, and recommend that; making this short just means that experimenters who want a long-lived sliver have to do a renewsliver more frequently.
     44
     45To set those with foamctl (replace the "value" part with the values you want to use):
     46
     47{{{
     48foamctl config:set-value --key="geni.site-tag" --value="foam.gpolab.bbn.com" --passwd-file=/opt/foam/etc/foampasswd
     49foamctl config:set-value --key="site.admin.email" --value="foam-admin@gpolab.bbn.com" --passwd-file=/opt/foam/etc/foampasswd
     50foamctl config:set-value --key="geni.max-lease" --value=9000 --passwd-file=/opt/foam/etc/foampasswd
     51}}}
