Description Josh Boyer 2017-09-29 15:33:38 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1489656 +++

Description of problem:  DMI isn't a supported way to obtain system information from a POWER8.  Currently dmidecode is used to information about the system  the only one of these that causes a problem is Physical Memory.

IPA reports {phyical_mb: None, total: <some number>} which causes the introspection data to be rejected.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
openstack-ironic-python-agent (all versions)

I'm not certain how to link this correctly to flag this is needed in RHOS 12 if https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1491837 is approved

Tony - I'd recommend cloning this bug and setting the flag to rhos-12.0 if this should be in OSP-12.

Comment 2 Tony Breeds 2017-12-07 01:44:49 UTC
We wont be doing this work in RHSO-12.

I'll open a similar bug against RHOS-13 for tracking that work in master/queens
