I am working on deploying images to bare-metal machines using nova bare-metal. In current architecture, disk images are kept at /var/lib/nova/instances after the image is written (by dd) to the hard disk of bare-metal machines. But these disk images file are no longer needed.

Does nova bare-metal support deleting disk images file at /var/lib/nova/instances after the image is written to bare-metal machines?
