The next WBMM/WIMS conference call will be on Wednesday 12 May from  12PM to 1PM EST. 

Time: 12:00 PM EST (9:00 AM PST)  
Call-in US Toll-free: 1-877-874-5524
Call-in International/Toll: 1-712-455-8420
Participant Identification number: 497478#

Proposed Agenda follows: 
	
	A. Review Discussion of Operation Returns and  Ira's  suggestion to include 	"unsupportedElements : UnsupportedElements - An UnsupportedElements object
that contains the elements that are not supported by the service. Conforms
to definition in the Semantic Model [SM] PwgCommon.xsd. If an element was
ignored, the element is returned with an empty value. If the element was substituted
to another value, the element with the substituted value is returned."

	B. Discussion of  response to  Actions.   We stated last week  that all actions  in a schedule should  produce a  response to the manager whether successful  or not. Ira  indicated further that any failure of any  action should cause  an alert operation to be initiated by the  agent. The addition of "unsupported elements" return to the  operations  was  partially  in response to the objection to issuing an alert each  time a  periodic GET_ELEMENTS  found an element not supported  by a given  managed  entity...presumably the agent  would check  elements in a  schedule for a  particular managed entity and return  an elements not supported so that the  manager would  learn what is not supported and modify the schedule   accordingly. This is a bit cumbersome  and I  think  needs  more  discussion.
Actions are  listed below: 

(Note: We are  still working on information in
ftp://ftp.pwg.org/pub/pwg/wbmm/wd/latestdraft.pdf.  
 I will prepare new drafts for next week  on the basis   of  recent  discussions.)

 The  actions are:
Vendor

Pause
Resume
PurgeJobs
Restart
Shutdown

GetElements
SetElements
