Doc Type: Known Issue
Doc Text:
When deploying Red Hat OpenStack Platform director, the bare-metal nodes should be powered off, and the ironic `node-state` and `provisioning-state` must be correct. For example, if ironic lists a node as "Available, powered-on", but the server is actually powered off, the node cannot be used for deployment. As a result, you will need to ensure that the node state in ironic matches the actual node state. Use "ironic node-set-power-state <node> [on|off]" and/or "ironic node-set-provisioning-state <node> available" to make the power state in ironic match the real state of the server, and ensure that the nodes are marked `Available`. As a result, once the state in ironic is correct, ironic will be able to correctly manage the power state and deploy to the nodes.

Description Dan Yocum 2015-11-17 16:35:57 EST
Description of problem:

A node will remain in 'power-on, available' state forever if the node is not actually in power-on state.  

Or vice-versa: power-off, available, when the node is powered-on

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


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. After node introspection, power-on a compute node
2. Attempt to openstack deply -e ....
3. ironic node-list and note that the compute node never deploys, or becomes available.

This bug did not make the OSP 8.0 release.  It is being deferred to OSP 10.
Comment 5 Dan Sneddon 2016-10-14 15:43:13 EDT
For now, I believe this bug can be addressed with the doc text added. If it is desired for automation to handle this scenario, then please open an [RFE] bug requesting that behavior.
Comment 7 Lucy Bopf 2016-11-01 23:48:54 EDT
The documentation has been provided via a release note, and will be included with the OSP 10 release.
