LF Migration

There is a meeting about PNDA Wiki and Jira migration tomorrow – Tuesday 5 Feb at 10am PST – which people are welcome to attend:

Frank mentioned that his main concern was getting wiki and jira logins migrated to LFID to make it easier for people to sign up to the PNDA project. Donald agreed that this is his main priority, other than getting the hosting migrated on to LF supported hosting.

February Meetings

Donald is on holiday for the next two weeks, returning on Monday 25 February. The regular scheduled meeting will continue and Casey will endeavour to give LF migration and Community Development updates. If anyone has agenda items for the upcoming meetings then please update the PNDA Community Meeting page.

Community Activity

There has been an uptick in activity on the PNDA google groups, primarily around installation on VMware using the beta functionality in PNDA 5.0. Donald has tried out the Packer and Terraform install process and has hit issues which he is investigating – using vSphere & ESXi 6.5 and running Packer on a Mac:

  • Packer vm build using local/centos_base.json failed when uploading the VM to vSphere using ovftool. ovftool does not give useful debug information or report what error is preventing it working.
  • Packer vm build using esxi completes but generated vm in vSphere needs manually migrated to ESXi 6.5+ before it will run.
  • pnda-cli installer starts and terraform launches VMs in vSphere but pnda-cli fails to connect to VMs – password prompts appear in terminal. Seems to be a problem with the generated VM not containing the ssh public key.

Cloud Native PNDA

We continued the discussion from last week about cloud native PNDA. Carlos has updated the Kube / Docker Image Choices page with more information about the docker images he has produced. 

As mentioned last week, we need to home in on a definition of the minimum value proposition for a Kubernetes hosted cloud-native PNDA. Is the feature functionality of Red PNDA, with multi-user capability, a sufficient baseline.
