Description RHOS Integration 2014-08-04 04:01:38 UTC
Cloned from launchpad blueprint https://blueprints.launchpad.net/nova/+spec/pxe-boot-instance.

Description:

Currently, compute instances must be booted from images (or snapshots) stored in Glance or volumes stored in Cinder. This blueprint and related ones aim to implement  booting compute instances from a PXE boot server, i.e. bypassing the image/snapshot/volume requirement. 
In this use case the user cannot choose the NIC to use for PXE boot and DHCP request is sent over each network interface attached to instance. 
This blueprint is related to 
https://blueprints.launchpad.net/nova/+spec/libvirt-empty-vm-boot-pxe
and inspired by
https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Nova/Blueprints/pxe-boot-instance
