Description Zane Bitter 2021-10-01 19:03:34 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #2006101 +++

When an ironic driver doesn't support soft power off, we are supposed to fall back to doing a hard power off. This was inadvertently broken in OpenShift 4.9. Now when the driver doesn't support soft power off we end up returning a 'transient' error and retrying in an infinite loop.

The Fujitsu driver is known to not support soft power off when its agent is not available on the host.

Hi Zane,

Fujitsu verified that soft shutdown feature worked correctly with OCP4.9.6 which includes PR184.

Best Regards,
Yasuhiro Futakawa

Many thanks for that.
Based on Fujitsu's success to validate the fix, I am closing it as OtherQA.
