Document Control Al 01/29/08 Write up text for Aperi document control. Tom will work with Al to transfer ownership to Al.
Post the new tutorials out on Eclipse Live. Tom 03/11/08 Tom talked to Allen M. about posting on Eclipse Live. Tom will work with Al to transfer ownership of this item.
SNIA Scalefest San Simulator Snapshot. Tom 02/29/08 Tom talked to Mike Walker who talked to SNIA folks, no problem with taking a snapshot, however, the snapshot cannot be publish on Aperi. Ok for use by IBM and any other paying plug-fest member companies. Ramani will do snapshot and working on determining if he has the proper access. There was a suggestion to post the snapshot to SMI LAB web space which is only available by paying member companies.
  • Other:
    • Aperi support
      • Thanks for helping Vikas with SRM / SAN Simulator install and bringup. Vikas is from IBM India and using env. to learn about storage and SANs. Ramani reported that he is up and running now.
      • Thanks for helping Nissamudeen with DB2 9.5 integration.
      • ISSUE: Vikas had no idea where to go for help, Tom received 2 different notes last week about where to go for help. There is an assumption that folks send a note to aperi-dev or open a bugzilla problem but perhaps it is not obvious enough on the Aperi web pages. Tom recommends website updates to show support process. If you have questions, update web to point to aperi-dev, also watch forums for users who don’t want to register. Al to create a new action item to update the web site to make this clearer. FAQ is more Aperi and not so much technical in terms of the most frequent problems that are reported. FAQ for most frequent problems might be helpful as a future enhancement but the main goal is to highlight the support mechanisms.
