Description of problem:
The cluster autoscaler expects there to be a providerID on both Machine and Node objects e.g for AWS:
That convention matches what the kube controller manager aws cloud provider sets on the Node.ProviderID.
For baremetal there’s no cloud provider so the machine controller (or an adhoc controller run by the same manager) will need to set the providerID on the nodes as well
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Deploy a baremetal IPI cluster that includes workers
2. Look at the Machine/Node resources
There is no providerID set on either.
the providerID should be set on both machine and node resources.
Ok so just for reference I created an AWS cluster to confirm what the spec looks like, it's a string ID so I think we can create an arbitrary identifier e.g "baremetal:<ID>" in the CAPBM to address this.
