      2. Mike sent Cedric, Rajesh, and Georg, RC slides and asked for peer review, especially slide 5 (Content progress) 
  2. Status from Lead & Authors (e.g. POD15)
    1. POD15
      1. 1/6 - PXE boot problem fixed - the port  on the switch the pxe NIC  was plugged into was not on the correct VLAN  - untagged was 150 when it should have been 151; fixed and restated the server and now it is pxe from the airship maas server
      2. 1/7 - software deployed successfully, pod-15 manifest merged in opnfv-airship repo
      3. 1/7 - Compliance (test) Validations failed, due to L3 network config issue fixed - basically, public-network creation (which was added as part of the deployment) was done only for pod-17. Now, it's been added it for all the pods (10, 15 and 17).
      4. 1/8 - Compliance validations retriggered - awaiting results. 
  3. Status on MVP Deliverable

          1. Prepare automation harness - connectivity, validation (POD10)? – Cedric?
            1. e.g. functest-smoke-cntt was just created. neutron-tempest-plugin-api is already conformed with the current API section.
          2. Create Test Plan

          • Strategy

            1. Use POD10 for Network Intensive. 

            2. Measure stats related to the NFVi datapath capacity.

            3. Goal will be to demonstrate full automation of the environment (continuous deployment) with test cases with some useful test results (continuous testing).
            4. Status? Then look at adding compute and storage intensive VNFs and identify test cases that map back to CNTT specified capabilities.(Luc, Sridhar, Al, Trevor - creating more detailed plan?).
        2. Testing
          1. Create Test Plan
          2. Finalize Test Harness/Framework
          3. Results Collection & Normalization
