@juliettkilotango
Just clarifying
Scott Haines
@shainesus
If no objections then, and no additional topics, we can close out the meeting.
Jay Turner
@juliettkilotango
Thanks!

Thanks for all who participated! Meeting archive will be linked off of https://cloudrouter.atlassian.net/wiki/x/fAAZ

thx everyone

thx
Arun Babu Neelicattu
@abn
Sounds good. @jagee think we need to validate the case
Jeremy Agee
@jagee
well we test the vmdk images in virtual box. i can see about looking for a eval on vmware
Jeremy Agee
@jagee
looks like we may could get a trial cp of VMware Workstation Pro 12.5 and try it out on windows with virtualbox for vmdk image testing. i dont really see the value in testing vmdk images with ether of those two on the linux front
Craig Oda
@codetricity
@jagee have you used the vmdk image for CR 3.0? I usually use the ISO and the nice information about the cloud-init iso, but I just booted the vmdk image with VirtualBox and can't figure out how to add credentials. What's the best way for me to login to the vmdk image and configure CR?
Jeremy Agee
@jagee
@codetricity yes i tested the vmdk image build before the 3.0 release using windows 10 and virtualbox. Take a look at our guide here https://cloudrouter.atlassian.net/wiki/display/CPD/Getting+Started#GettingStarted-Virtualbox You can use the section on that page to creating your own cloud-init iso or use the provided one as well. If you run into any trouble please let us know and we will see if we can work through it. On first boot of ether the raw or vmdk image the cloud-init service will read the info off of the cloud-init.iso attached to the vm. Login creds are created based off of this provided data. after that the system should keep its existing settings for any further boot. You may need to try from a freshly unpacked vmdk image if the step of attaching the cloud-init iso before first boot was missed.
Craig Oda
@codetricity
@jagee thank you! This explains it great . :-)

@adaminsh
Hello
Anyone here?
Jay Turner
@juliettkilotango
@adaminsh Yes indeed.
adaminsh
@adaminsh
I just have a simple question
Jay Turner
@juliettkilotango
Certainly.
adaminsh
@adaminsh
I recently purchased the Cloud VPN router and installed a hard disk in it. I just want to know how to access my data on the drive from Windows Explorer
I'd be very grateful if you could provide any advice
Jay Turner
@juliettkilotango
@adaminsh I think this might not be the right channel.
adaminsh
@adaminsh
Oh, I see
Jay Turner
@juliettkilotango
Are you talking about the Western Digital Cloud VPN device?
adaminsh
@adaminsh
It is the sl-wr805w router
Jay Turner
@juliettkilotango
@adaminsh I wish this channel could help you, but the CloudRouter discussed here is an open source software-based network operating system (cloudrouter.org)
adaminsh
@adaminsh
I see. Thanks anyway.

hi
i tried running vbox image
but i get grub error
neeraj kharbanda
@astro_sutradhar_twitter
hi anyone there ?
Jay Turner
@juliettkilotango
@astro_sutradhar_twitter Can you please provide the text of the error? Thanks
Jeremy Agee
@jagee
@astro_sutradhar_twitter we also have a guide for virtualbox here if you have not seen it https://cloudrouter.atlassian.net/wiki/display/CPD/Getting+Started#GettingStarted-Virtualbox

@itomkins
hi i am a newbie user, just fired up cr4 in vbox using the minimal image (congrats on the new release btw) and wondering where to go next. Is there a list of packages/tools provided? How do I go about finding out best practices for building functional stuff with it etc?
Jesse Casman
@jcasman
hi @itomkins , hello from fellow newbie land. Couple recent blog posts that might be useful: Installation on Windows 10 (https://app.console.to/article/57dc9c32f90f290f6444bbd4) and installing Cockpit - network/system mgmt interface (https://app.console.to/article/57dc9c32f90f290f6444bbd4) - Not exactly a perfect list of the best packages and tools, but maybe some things to start chewing on!
John Siegrist
@SiegristJ
Hi itomkin,
To get started, the Cloud Router images have the CRv4 RPM installed by default. Depending on whether you're using the Fedora base or the Centos base, you can install packages via dnf or yum, respectively. For the SDN controllers, you might want to have a look at packages OpenDayLight or ONOS, or you might be interested in bird, quagga or exabgp.
Ian Tomkins
@itomkins
thanks for the suggestions. I guess I am wondering what cloudrouter has over and above a standard linux distribution plus some pre-packaged networking apps?
John Siegrist
@SiegristJ
@itomkins: The challenge we have right now with CloudRouter is to figure out what direction makes the most sense for software-defined network technologies. At present the base platform is fairly generic, and the CloudRouter repos in their present form would serve just fine as an alternate RPM repo that contains networking-related packages. However, until we hit upon the right direction for the base platform - be it containers or unikernels or VMs, we are opting for greater flexibility. One thing I didn't realize until we were putting together this last v4.0 release was how many good networking software packages are out there that don't integrate nicely into the major Linux distros. While this is a much more limited goal for the project, meeting this need by packaging these components actually provides a useful service to the open source community. If you have any suggestions for packages we should include or ideas about what sort of platform specializations we should be looking at, by all means please raise a JIRA ticket or bring it up as a discussion point here.
Jay Turner
@juliettkilotango
@SiegristJ Thanks for taking up the mantle there!
Ian Tomkins
@itomkins
@SiegristJ Thanks for that detailed answer, it was really difficult to get a feel for what this thing really is from the info on the cloudrouter.org site which presents is as much more of an OTS router distro (comparable with something like vyos for example) that what it really is which is a platform to go build your own stuff on top of with a bunch of useful tools baked in.
Ian Tomkins
@itomkins
i am still working out how i want to tool up for NFV / SDN etc. I guess I am coming at this from a more traditional networking perspective whilst trying to figure out how to adapt stuff to incrementally solve the problems caused by traditional networking systems
btw i still haven't been able to find a list of all the packages provided in CR4 over the top of stock fedora/centos
Jay Turner
@juliettkilotango
@itomkins As John pointed out, one of the key advantages of CloudRouter is that we do pull together lots of disparate SDN-related technologies and make them easily consumable. This significantly lowers the barrier to entry for individuals wishing to play around with the latest and greatest. We wanted to do this on a solid foundation, hence the decision to ship on both Fedora and CentOS.
@itomkins We will get a list posted to the site, but if you check out the package repo, you can see the list . . . https://repo.cloudrouter.org/4/centos/7/x86_64/
@itomkins Likewise for Fedora, https://repo.cloudrouter.org/4/fedora/24/x86_64/
Ian Tomkins
@itomkins
@juliettkilotango ah yes as simple as that thanks
Jay Turner
@juliettkilotango
@itomkins I spent the majority of my career at Red Hat . . . looking at repos has become ingrained in my very being :-)
Ian Tomkins
@itomkins
i bet
btw don't take my comments as overly critical, i think this is really useful stuff, just coming to it as a network engineer rather than as a developer meant that the information provided was a little impenetrable
Jay Turner
@juliettkilotango
@itomkins Not at all! The beauty of an open source project is the ability of the community to assist and direct.
@itomkins I am fully aware that CloudRouter currently falls into the category of "not really knowing what it wants to be when it grows up"
