### Baremetal provisioning Hardware Enrollment Issues

Hi,

I'm trying to do a baremetal provisioning using openstack following steps given here: https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Baremetal

All the steps run through but I get into issues with Hardware Enrollment. Whenever I try to execute,

nova baremetal-node-create --pm_address=... --pm_user=... --pm_password=... \ $COMPUTE-HOST-NAME$CPU $RAM$DISK $FIRST-MAC I get into an error stating: "The server has either erred or is incapable of performing the requested operation". For reference, I'm trying to provision a HILO baremetal instance. In fact, I get the same error even when I'm just trying to list baremetal nodes. Any pointers on what could be the possible root cause for this? Any pre-requisites missed in the document that I'm following? Pls advise. Thanks, Prakhar  2 retagged smaffulli 6981 ●38 ●68 ●102 http://maffulli.net/ ### Baremetal provisioning Hardware Enrollment Issues Hi, I'm trying to do a baremetal provisioning using openstack following steps given here: https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Baremetal All the steps run through but I get into issues with Hardware Enrollment.
