Comment 1 Yolanda Robla 2017-01-11 12:03:06 UTC
Just wanted to note that check_for_iscsi code is already present on newton, so this customization is only needed for OSP8.

Comment 2 Yolanda Robla 2017-01-12 12:12:23 UTC
I created bug https://bugs.launchpad.net/tripleo/+bug/1655681 to reflect the need for ramdisk update, either in deployment image and later on the initramfs

Comment 3 Yolanda Robla 2017-01-12 14:59:49 UTC

Comment 4 Yolanda Robla 2017-01-16 10:50:07 UTC
Also need to clarify that this is needed on the ironic-python-image, not in overcloud-full

Comment 5 Yolanda Robla 2017-01-17 16:36:36 UTC
I need feedback on https://review.openstack.org/420765 , that is adding an element to update dracut in the agent and enable drivers

Comment 6 Yolanda Robla 2017-01-18 11:03:55 UTC
Review of the patch was done by Yuval

Comment 7 Yolanda Robla 2017-02-02 10:14:58 UTC
Patch landed

Comment 9 Yolanda Robla 2017-03-27 15:34:24 UTC
