Weekly Ironic Project Team Meeting

If you're interested in bare metal deployments with OpenStack, please join us. This meeting is where we'll talk about the Ironic project, an evolution of the Nova Baremetal driver. Anyone is welcome to add items to the agenda below, or bring up their topic during the open discussion at the end of each meeting.

Meetings are held in the #openstack-meeting room on irc.freenode.net at 19:00 UTC on Mondays. The next meeting is scheduled for November 18th, 2013 (http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?iso=20131118T1900).

Following this meeting is the TripleO team meeting, which often also discusses issues related to bare metal deployments.

Agenda for next meeting

  • Greeting, roll-call and announcements.
  • Outstanding, in-progress or Action Item updates:
    • ACTION(10/07/2013): devananda to write framework for nova-ironic driver
    • ACTION(10/07/2013): lucasagomes to add CLI docs to ironic developer doc pages
    • ACTION(9/30/2013): romcheg to propose a non-gating job to -infra
    • ACTION(9/16/2013): devananda to think about a Transifex project for Ironic
    • ACTION(9/16/2013): romcheg looking at Ukrainian and Russian transifex translations
    • ACTION(9/16/2013): romcheg Check how i18n conplient we are
  • Integration and testing
  • Python-IronicClient
  • API discussion:
    • vendor_passthru
      • HTTP response body
      • PUT "{data}" to /v1/nodes/{UUID}/vendor_passthru/{method}
      • initial work done: call conductor to validate. cast to start the work. return 202-in-progress. some functionality still to add.
      • should we allow POST and GET?
      • should data have any requirements / limits? (ie. size < 1k, must be json, etc..)
    • How the API should expose instances
  • Ironic: The Real Java Driver what_is_it?
  • Food For Thought:
    • How will Ironic integrate / interface with nova?
      • new driver to be written: nova/virt/ironic/driver.py
    • How will Ironic handle networking / Ip's / neutron?
      • Don's ( dkehn ) Neutron patches have Landed! How will this impact Ironic?
        • This work is being integrated in the current Nova driver. That will also need to be integrated in the nova-ironic driver.
    • Should Ironic send PXE information directly to Neutron? Or, should this information flow through the Nova driver (this is how other hypervisor drivers work)?
    • Keystone options not reflected in sample.conf Missing Options
    • How should we inform deploy ramdisk of ironic's api url?
      • Kernel param
      • Dhcp option tag
      • Dns name
      • Other?
    • How will Ironic handle > then 1 conductor
