     NETCONF Extensions to Support the Network Management Datastore
                              Architecture
                   draft-ietf-netconf-nmda-netconf-08

Abstract

   This document extends the NETCONF protocol defined in RFC 6241 in
   order to support the Network Management Datastore Architecture
   defined in RFC 8342.

   This document updates both RFC 6241 and RFC 7950.  The update to RFC
   6241 adds new operations <get-data> and <edit-data>, and augments
   existing operations <lock>, <unlock>, and <validate>.  The update to
   RFC 7950 requires the usage of I-D.ietf-netconf-rfc7895bis by NETCONF
   servers implementing the Network Management Datastore Architecture.

   RFC Ed.: Please replace "I-D.ietf-netconf-rfc7895bis" above with its
   final RFC assignment and remove this note.

1.  Introduction

   This document extends the NETCONF protocol defined in [RFC6241] in
   order to support the Network Management Datastore Architecture (NMDA)
   defined in [RFC8342].

   This document updates [RFC6241] in order to enable NETCONF clients to
   interact with all the datastores supported by a server implementing
   the NMDA.  The update both adds new operations <get-data> and
   <edit-data>, and augments existing operations <lock>, <unlock>, and
   <validate>.

   This document also updates [RFC7950] in order to enable NETCONF
   clients to both discover which datastores are supported by the
