Description Sirius Rayner-Karlsson 2016-11-17 20:06:58 UTC
1. Description:

Feature request to include the Redfish API Ironic driver in OSP11/Ocata

2. Details
  a. Bugzilla dependencies (if any):


  b. Hardware dependencies (if any):


  c. Upstream information
     i. Date it will be upstream:

It's being upstreamed, https://github.com/hafe/ironic-hds, but require review, pointers and tips from Red Hat

    ii. Version:


  d.     External links:


  e.      Severity (U/H/M/L):


  f.       Business Priority (Must/High Want/Want):


3. Business Justification
  a. Why is this needed:

The HDS-8000 hardware require an Ironic driver for bare-metal bring-up, and that requires leveraging the Redfish API.

  b.  What hardware is required (if any):


  c.  Business impact:

Comment 7 Dmitry Tantsur 2017-04-11 15:09:34 UTC
Do we know if the driver proposed upstream is going work for this case?

Also, are we going to get hardware to test it or should it be OtherQA?

Comment 9 Dmitry Tantsur 2017-04-13 16:41:02 UTC
Moving to Pike-2. The underlying library was released, the ironic patches are in good shape and undergo review right now.

Comment 10 Ramon Acedo 2017-05-22 17:49:15 UTC
Just to be clear this BZ tracks specifically the upstream redfish development with Sushy: https://github.com/openstack/sushy not https://github.com/hafe/ironic-hds as in the description.

Comment 11 Dmitry Tantsur 2017-05-22 17:58:33 UTC
Thanks for clarification. If so, the Ironic part is already available, and the TripleO bits are on review. We're well on track with it even for Pike-2.

Comment 12 Dmitry Tantsur 2017-05-23 14:48:34 UTC
With the TripleO patch merged, I think we can move it to POST.

Comment 15 Ilya Etingof 2017-11-13 14:20:57 UTC
With the great help from dyasny I have been able to pass through all the test cases [A].

I have configured two nodes via the instackenv.json [B] at Dan's test bench [C]. One node is ipmi-managed while the other works over redfish.

The redfish simulator [C] is installed on the Infrared undercloud and ran in parallel with the vbmc. So you can manage both libvirt-based instances (compute & controller) via either of the tools.

The only quirk I run into when importing instackenv is that you can't leave out pm_username  and pm_password JSON fields even if they are not actually used by the redfish driver.

You can play with the setup while it lasts.
