Hi, I am using CentOS with rdo rocky, with no-heat option. I have 1 interface, on which I will do PXE boot and I am able to access DELL iDRAC.

I am able to ssh to idrac from undercloud host. But I am not able to do introspection.

Not sure where it stops...

When I power on Server, from openstack baremetal node list I can see that it has updated power state, but it looks like it cannot set it to boot to PXE and or even boot from PXE. When I force server to do so (boot from pxe). Also it looks like it is not able to send boot/reboot/start/stop commands to idrac...

I have python-dracclient:

python-dracclient.noarch        1.5.0-1.el7              @centos-openstack-rocky
According to should be version 1.3.0+. Nodes file:
    "nodes": [
            "name": "h00811",
            "pm_type": "idrac",
            "ports": [

            "capabilities": "profile:compute,boot_option:local"
I have tried changing **pm_type** to **idrac** and **ipmi**, but with ipmi it even do not receive Power state. I use DELL R630's as compute/controllers. --- tcpdump show activity in **https** with an idrac IP. --- When I boot server manually to PXE, it do not catch PXE boot, but from undercloud I see requests, but no response...
