    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,

    I-D Editor, Monday (11 February 2002)

    Please place this updated document in the Internet-Drafts repository
    named:

        <draft-mcdonald-svrloc-mib-02.txt> (11 February 2002)

    It replaces the previous draft:

        <draft-mcdonald-svrloc-mib-01.txt> (20 November 2001)

    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,
    - Ira McDonald (co-editor of SLP MIB)
