About DMFUGThe DMF Users Group was started in 2009 to provide a forum for sites using the SGI Data Migration Facility HSM software to provide assistance and encouragement to each other, and to provide feedback to SGI.
While we are grateful for the encouragement and support provided by SGI and associated vendors, DMFUG is independent of those companies and operates using facilities provided by its members.
These facilities include a mailing list, this web-site and face-to-face meetings, which are held on a member's premises approximately once a year. So far, these meetings have all taken place in various locations in Australia.
Members have also prepared "wish-lists" of their most desired DMF enhancements, and these have been submitted to SGI Engineering to help with their prioritisation of feature implementation. These have been quite successful, with at least 7 requested features appearing by DMF 6.0.
A New Wish-ListA new wish-list has been voted on. You can see the results here.
Mailing ListTo join the list, SGI customers using DMF and SGI staff should email dmfug-request©lists·hpsc·csiro·au with the word "subscribe" as either the subject or the text of the mail.
Alternatively, you can fill out the membership request form at http://lists.hpsc.csiro.au/listinfo/dmfug/
Archives of previous postings can be found at http://lists.hpsc.csiro.au/pipermail/dmfug/
MeetingsThe next meeting is likely to take place in Sydney, New South Wales in February 2015.
Further details will be added to the end of this web page and circulated via the mailing list closer to the date. Queries should be sent to dmfug-meeting©lists·hpsc·csiro·au
