After I install the devstack, (
I try to install bare metal service. (

When I create the database tables, it shows error:

root@myhost:~# ironic-dbsync --config-file /path/to/ironic.conf create_schema
usage: ironic-dbsync [-h] [--config-dir DIR] [--config-file PATH] [--debug]

{upgrade,downgrade,stamp,revision,version} ...
ironic-dbsync: error: argument command: invalid choice: 'create_schema' (choose from 'upgrade', 'downgrade', 'stamp', 'revision', 'version')

Here is my ironic-dbsync version:
root@myhost:~# ironic-dbsync --version

I had the same problem, but I could continue the tutorial replacing create_schema for update "ironic-dbsync --config-file /path/to/ironic.conf update". The "update" created the tables into the ironic db.

"update" is not available in the available options. I hope, its "upgrade" .

I hope documentation needs to updated .
