Really helpful answer!

You're right, I will need to configure it manually, but that's not so bad. Other than that, are there more issues to think about? Thanks for your answer :)

2016-08-17 03:41:07 -0500 asked a question Ironic - PXE boot

Hi, I have a question that the Ironic documentation doesn't seem to really answer. How exactly the Openstack networks are to be connected to the baremetal nodes. When the baremetal node PXE boots, is it through the tagged flat network (which I understand is a problem), or does it have to have a dedicated port connected to the untagged PXE openstack network?

My goal is to have as few ports as possible that need to be connected to the Ironic Conductor.

Thanks for your help!

At my company, we are planning on using Ironic to deploy an application on Bare Metal nodes. The plan is to provision the nodes, and then let the nodes work standalone - while reusing the openstack server for other needs. Of course, I accept the loss of functionality in scaling and Disaster Recovery.

The question is it even possible to leave orphaned nodes?

2016-05-08 16:19:47 -0500 asked a question Separate parts of stack - heat

Hello. I am looking for the best way of creating a stack, in a number of separate steps.

I would like in the first template, to only get up the compute nodes and the network configuration.

In the second template, I would like to create the storage nodes and attach them to the already existing compute nodes.

What do you think is the best way to do this?
