Martin Fabric White Paper
Martin gave a very small overview. The paper is about DMTF RF Fabric model andhow it can be used along side computer and storage.We'll vote on this next week.
HPE was proposing that the community get together and develop a plugin for Dellservers. The purpose of that would be to be able to show ODIM's strength in amulti-vendor environment. We could start with the existing Generic RedfishPlugin and build in translations specific to Dell as needed. The goal is for itto comply with the ODIM profiles as much as possible.Nobody seemed to oppose this concept. Jonas will write up a proposal.
Update on Intel's contributions
Unmanaged rack plugin. Seems to be ready for testing but they need feedbackBMC Simulater, you can mimick different servers by using different templatesRafal wanted to know how close to DMTF releases should the simulator be. Thiswill require more discussions though. We also want ODIM to be very close to thelatest release of the spec. Intel also mentioned that the plugin will be readyend of November.
Moving under an umbrella organization
As noted very early in the project's creation phase it is likely better for ODIMlong term to fold under an umbrella organization such as LFN for instance. Onequestion that was raised during the meeting is what happens with participatingcompanies that are not LFN members if ODIM folds in under LFN. Can they continueto participate in ODIM just as they do now? Louise said he would investigate andtalk to some colleagues about this.

Martin Halstead has not received any feedback on the white paper so far. It wasdecided to allow for one more week for feedback to come in. On November 4th anofficial decision will be made to send the paper over to LF for them to provideLF templates to the paper.
