Description Lucy Bopf 2017-02-02 05:54:31 UTC
RHOSP 9 supports manual cleaning, which allows operators to move a node directly into a cleaning state, from a manageable state.
This was added because operators may run cleaning steps for various reasons, including: Building RAID, erasing devices, among others.
As a result, operators are now able to use the OpenStack Bare Metal (ironic) API to manually start the cleaning process for the ironic nodes, choosing exactly which steps should be run.

The steps for manual cleaning must be investigated and documented.

See http://docs.openstack.org/developer/ironic/deploy/cleaning.html?highlight=manual%20cleaning#manual-cleaning for upstream examples.
