I'm not sure what has happened here; this looks like a cluster that has been cobbled together manually, although the reproduction instructions appear to indicate that is not the case?

- metal3 is not running (the Deployment does not exist)
- master BareMetalHosts still have paused annotations, as if the installation never finished
- no attempt has been made to provision the worker BareMetalHosts, although they have inspection data (presumably added by the installer?)

I think the Machines are failing to pick up any BareMetalHosts because they have an empty provisioning status (due to metal3 not running to reconcile them). So the warnings are correct. 2 worker Nodes are up and ready, but I'm not sure what provisioned them. It doesn't appear to be the Machines.
