Hi folks,                                      Monday (11 February 2002)

I've just sent a revised draft of 'Definitions of Managed Objects for
Service Location Protocol (SLP MIB)' to the Internet-Drafts editor and
posted a copy on the Printer Working Group (PWG) Anonymous FTP server in
the directory 'ftp://ftp.pwg.org/pub/pwg/ipp/new_SLP/' in the files:

    <draft-mcdonald-svrloc-mib-02.txt> (11 February 2002) - full I-D
    <draft-mcdonald-svrloc-mib-02.mib> (11 February 2002) - SMIv2 MIB

This draft is a major rewrite to reduce size and complexity, per request
of Bert Wijnen (Lucent, IETF Ops Area Director).  The previous draft
defined 142 objects.  The new draft defines 10 mandatory and 9 optional
objects.

ISSUE:  The new 'Property' group supports optional configuration of
SLPv2 properties, as defined in SLPv2 API (RFC 2614).  But this creates
a Normative dependency on RFC 2614.  Either the SLPv2 API must be
advanced from Informational to 'standards track' or the SLP MIB must not
allow any remote configuration of SLP properties (which would prevent
the intended IETF IPS WG usage model for iSCSI).

Comments?

Cheers,

Abstract 

   This memo defines a portion of the Management Information Base (MIB) 
   for use with network management protocols in the Internet community.
   In particular, it defines as set of managed objects that support
   monitoring and configuration of Service Location Protocol Version 2
   (SLPv2) [RFC2608] [RFC3111] directory agents (DAs), service agents
   (SAs), and user agents (UAs).  


Thanks very much,
