Description Dan Sneddon 2019-01-22 21:02:41 UTC
Description of problem:
The Ironic Python Agent does not include the new network-scripts RPM by 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Stein/OSP 15

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Build Ironic Python Agent image on RHEL 8 without any additional packages
2. Deploy IPA to a remote node via PXE boot to perform inspection

Actual results:
The networking does not function in the IPA image.

Expected results:
The IPA image should obtain an IP address through DHCP and contact the IPA server API to report introspection results.

Additional info:
The network service has been deprecated for RHEL 8 and is not enabled by default. In order to restore legacy functionality, the network-scripts package must be installed and the network service must be enabled.

We may not need to enable legacy network scripts if we can modify the network configuration inside the IPA image. Adding "NM_CONTROLLED=yes" to the ifcfg files will cause NetworkManager to be used instead of the network service.

Comment 3 Bob Fournier 2019-02-06 17:37:48 UTC
The RHEL 8 fix to use a single partition (#1a in Comment 2) is tracked here - https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1673094.

Comment 6 Bob Fournier 2019-03-10 16:26:06 UTC
Moving this bug to POST as the fix to use network-scripts has been added to IPA.  The additional changes to use diskiamge_builder with RHEL 8 is being handled by ReleaseDelivery.

Comment 7 Bob Fournier 2019-06-06 14:22:01 UTC
Testing can be handled by any regression tests that use ironic-python-agent in OSP-15.

Comment 9 Alexander Chuzhoy 2019-08-30 18:54:20 UTC

Confirmed that ironic-python-agent.initramfs has in etc/redhat-release:
Red Hat Enterprise Linux release 8.0 (Ootpa)
