Description of problem:
Section 6.2.2  Inspecting the Hardware of Nodes should probably contain a subsection of how to inspect one node at a time instead of just a bulk start. The second part of that instruction should instruct the admin to mark the node as available manually, since that is only done automatically if the introspection was done in bulk.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Assigning to Dan for review.
Comment 5 Dan Macpherson 2015-09-24 22:53:33 EDT

I've added the following to the Introspection procedure:

Alternatively, perform a single introspection on each node individually. Set the node to maintenance mode, perform the introspection, then revert the node out of maintenance mode:

$ ironic node-set-maintenance [NODE UUID] true
$ openstack baremetal introspection start [NODE UUID]
$ ironic node-set-maintenance [NODE UUID] false

Does this suit the requirements in this BZ? Did you have any further changes needed?
