Description Marko Myllynen 2017-06-19 09:32:09 EDT
Description of problem:
https://docs.openshift.com/container-platform/latest/install_config/install/host_preparation.html describes the long list of the needed steps to prepare a host for OCP installation.

This should be fully automated.

There is already a playbook doing this automatically, perhaps it could be used for inspiration here:

Hi Marko,

We're focusing the majority of our host preparation simplification on the containerized installation on OpenShift.  Even Docker will run as a container (a system container).  When using the containerized install there would be no need to manage complicated repository configuration steps which is essentially what the "Host Preparation" documentation is about.

Other improvements for admins who don't even want to bother with host subscription concerns is our effort on shipping "golden images".

I'm adding a link to a trello card for containerizing the installation process.  In short, we understand the need for a simple cluster bootstrapping process.
