Platform: baremetal IPI, Dell R640 iDRAC 4.40.0.0
node is secure boot enabled

What happened?

when provisioning the worker,
it seems that ironic is able to attach the vmedia, but node is not booting from it.
manually selecting it from the boot menu, works.

What did you expect to happen?

that node will be automatically provisioned without manual intervention needed


How to reproduce it (as minimally and precisely as possible)?

1. deploy a ocp 4.7.7 cluster, where nodes are secure boot enabled (using idrac-virtualmedia and provisioning network disabled)


attached conductor logs, note that they contain the manual intervention too

Note for triaging: I wonder if it's a firmware problem. I tested secure boot on a different Dell machine, and it worked.

Comment 2 Bob Fournier 2021-05-04 16:21:05 UTC
Looks like the most recent version for the R640 [1] is 4.40.10.00 from 13 April, 2021

Comment 3 Derek Higgins 2021-05-04 16:24:46 UTC
Can you see if their are any firmware upgrades available and if so see if they resolve the problem,
if that doesn't help would it be possible to access the environment so we can debug further

Comment 4 Yuval Kashtan 2021-05-04 18:20:12 UTC
so this node is with 4.40.0.0 is see there is 4.40.10 I'll try to test with that too
@derek what fw did you test with? I can try and get similar node too ..

dmitry would have the answer to that

Comment 6 Dmitry Tantsur 2021-05-05 09:32:33 UTC
I think it was iDRAC 8, so 2.*.*.*. Won't help you, but I agree with trying the latest firmware version.

Comment 7 Yuval Kashtan 2021-05-05 09:36:21 UTC
I'm on it as we speak, results should be in later today
sorry about using the wrong 'D' there ;-)
