Hi all,

Was wondering whether anyone here has tried deploying Openstack using bonded interfaces with UEFI? Having had a look at different possible solutions, I found that there isn't any working solutions yet.

Foreman installer is not yet working with Grub2 (EFI bootloader). I got as far as booting server with foreman discovery image but when it gets to registering node part, there is no network connectivity. I believe this is due to BOOTIF parameter missing. Still have to investigate how to get this working with Grub2.

Syslinux 6.03 has EFI bootloader but appears to have bugs and support is in early stages. The server gets bootloader file, but then does not get IP from DHCP and end up with 'stalling on configure with no mapping' message loop.

Ironic and TripleO are still early days and have not found a good article talking about UEFI support and how that would work.

Any advise would be much appreciated.

Many thanks, Andris
