class archive_storage_type(osv.Model):



        'name': fields.integer('Storage Type'),


class news_footage(osv.Model):


        'server_id': fields.one2many('footage.server.id','server_id', 'Server ID'),


When I put integer value it works fine but I want server_id to be char field. How to do that?

The server_id is always going to be the link to another record (in this case many records), so you should keep the field like that. 

However, I think what you need is a related field. This can be the name of the archieve storage type, based on the field as it is filled in. So for example:

'related_server_name('server_id', 'name', type='char')

"server_id" in this case is the field that you already made. "name" is the field on the object you are referring to and "type" indicates that it should be shown as a character field in this case. 

You should never have to worry about the input for relational fields yourself. The ORM does that for you.
