Hi Sue,

A couple of comments on this draft:

1.       Section 2 says:

"The [I-D.openconfig-netmod-opstate] denotes the actual configuration as derived state."

While draft-openconfig-opstate says: The applied configuration and derived state can be considered as the overall 'operational' state of the NE."
Thus the applied(actual) configuration belongs to the operational state, but does not belong to derived state.

Section 2 also says: ""Recently the [I-D.openconfig-netmod-opstate] has proposed that intended configuration, actual configuration, and the traditional type of operational data be included as operational state."

Maybe there is a typo here, the intended configuration should belong to configuration.

2. Since Ephemeral is about data not persisting over a reboot, maybe a requirement for ephemeral states is that they MUST never be copied to the startup configuration datastore?

Best regards,

HI all:

Here's the I2RS protocol design document.  Would you review this on Tuesday and send me comments?  If it is helpful, we could meet as a design team at 10:00-11:30am.

I would like to get comments and feedback before Wednesday's 10/21/2015 interim meeting.
