16:04:49 <Goneri> #topic VMware HttpApi modules
16:04:57 <akasurde> alongchamps, Hi
16:05:05 <Goneri> Just a quick update regarding HttpApi, https://github.com/ansible/ansible/pull/60914 has been merged last week
16:05:07 <alongchamps> hey akasurde
16:05:28 <akasurde> alongchamps, we are meeting in AnsibleFest 2019 for discussing Cloud and in-general VMware topic discussion
16:05:57 <Goneri> and it already comes with a couple of modules, I'm currently working on a series of unit-tests for these new modules. The goal is to use that, instead of the functional tests.
16:06:02 <alongchamps> I won't be at AnsibleFest unfortunately
16:06:38 <akasurde> Ah ! Anyways you can follow us on IRC or Bluejeans meeting
16:06:56 <alongchamps> ok, I'll look in to that, see what else is on my calendar
16:13:05 <Goneri> akasurde, what do we do for: https://github.com/ansible/ansible/pull/62304 ?
16:13:50 <akasurde> Goneri, we can merge it
16:13:51 <akasurde> :)
16:14:23 <Goneri> thanks
16:21:11 <alongchamps> hey Goneri, I saw the issue you opened on 61332 for vmware_host_firewall_manager's tests
16:21:46 <alongchamps> and I think that first test was in there before my other PR, but nonetheless, it looks like an indentation problem at first glance
16:25:53 <Goneri> ah, nice, can you push a PR to resolve the issue?
16:26:13 <alongchamps> I think I'll be able to do that in the next week
16:26:39 <alongchamps> also, for running the tests, is there a good way to set that up? since I haven't run them before so I want to make sure I fix the issue
16:27:12 <Goneri> I don't think this one can run on vcsim, so you need to have a regular lab
16:27:40 <Goneri> alongchamps, https://docs.ansible.com/ansible/devel/dev_guide/platforms/vmware_guidelines.html#testing-with-your-own-infrastructure
16:27:42 <alongchamps> ok I will talk to my VMware people about that
16:28:07 <alongchamps> oh nice, I'll save that link
16:28:10 <Goneri> I use libvirt to set-up my lab on my laptop
16:28:26 <alongchamps> I have some real hardware I can fire up for this one :)
16:28:27 <Goneri> you need =~ 20GB of RAM
16:28:48 <dericcrago> what licensing do you use for your lab Goneri?
16:28:58 <Goneri> ah, nice. Don't hesitate to update/improve the documentation during the process
16:29:08 <alongchamps> I'll give it a good user test
16:29:09 <Goneri> dericcrago, the demo/testing license
16:29:36 <dericcrago> are you talking about the vmug subscription license or something else?
16:29:41 <Goneri> my scripts; https://github.com/goneri/vmware-on-libvirt
16:30:14 <dericcrago> licensing has been an issue for me in the past as the free esxi doesn't really get you anything in terms of automation
16:30:18 <akasurde> #chair dericcrago
16:30:18 <zodbot> Current chairs: Goneri akasurde alongchamps dericcrago
16:30:47 <Goneri> well, I don't use any license with my ESXi and vCenter.
16:30:50 <akasurde> dericcrago, we use Evaluation copy
16:30:55 <Goneri> And so, I've got like 90days to trial
16:31:38 <dericcrago> ah, I see, you deploy, tear down, repeat on like a 30 day or on demand cycle?
16:32:17 <Goneri> Yup, I take like 30 minutes max to re-setup everything on libvirt.
16:32:31 <Goneri> And for our CI, we've a playbook that do more or less the same
16:33:00 <Goneri> -> https://galaxy.ansible.com/goneri/ansible_role_vcenter_instance
16:33:33 <akasurde> Goneri, ^^ scripts works like charm
16:33:43 <alongchamps> I'm looking forward to testing these out
16:33:50 <Goneri> the libvirt ones?
16:33:56 <dericcrago> ok, as an fyi, you can get 365-day Training Licenses (among other things) for $200/yr from VMware https://www.vmug.com/membership/membership-benefits
16:34:11 <alongchamps> yes, for setting up the test environment
16:36:39 <akasurde> dericcrago, does it give you access to download VMware Vrealize automation ?
16:37:27 <alongchamps> yep, you get download links to the products
16:37:54 <akasurde> Oh good
16:38:02 <dericcrago> I *believe* so based on https://community.vmug.com/vmug2019/membership/evalexperience but I haven't paid yet to find out
16:38:20 <alongchamps> I did it last year since I have a homelab and I can confirm that
16:38:58 <dericcrago> sorry to sidetrack the conversation, I was just curious as to how people were handling that
16:39:32 <dericcrago> I would be interested in your opinion of vmug advantage after the meeting though alongchamps
16:40:43 <alongchamps> sure I'll be around
16:41:17 <alongchamps> protip: there are discount codes, too so the price comes out a bit lower than $200
16:41:49 <alongchamps> but besides that, do we have much else on the agenda today akasurde?
16:42:59 <Goneri> alongchamps, I think he fall asleep :-)
16:43:39 <Goneri> but, yeah, I guess we are done for today. I don't think we had a real agenda today anyway.
16:44:14 <alongchamps> I'm in agreement
16:44:50 <akasurde> I don't have a solid agenda
16:45:06 <akasurde> Just wanted to make awareness around AnsibleFest VMware meet up
16:45:26 <alongchamps> oh yeah, what's the date/time/timezone for that
16:45:30 <alongchamps> I'll get it on my calendar
16:46:32 <akasurde> #info https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/ansible-summit-atlanta-2019-cloud
16:48:50 <dericcrago> specifically are you talking about the 3-5pm timeslot akasurde? 'Crystal CD (Level 1): Available for Working Groups (Possibly continuing with Community & Contributor improvements)'?
16:49:10 <akasurde> Yes I guess
16:50:43 <dericcrago> sounds good, I will try to make it
16:50:45 <alongchamps> 3-5 works for me
17:09:37 <akasurde> We are little over time so I will mark this meeting as end
