Description Fabian Deutsch 2013-06-06 08:58:41 EDT
Description of problem:
Currently Node is creating a bridge by default for it's primary nic.
Sometimes this is not needed, therefor Node should also be able to do a simple net setup by just using a NIC directly.

This will introduce a new configuration item (tbd) to choose the topology to be configured.

An update:
There are now patches in gerrit which introduce the necessary changes.
With those patches a basic installation works.
A few glitches, reminders for myself:
* Look at biosdevname
* bootif and bootproto are lost after reboot after install
* topology=direct isn't handled correctly
* ui doesn't get all necessary infos (ip, ...)

The patches are a major rewrite of the net backend and the auto-installer part.

That was the default case.
I modified the logic to keep BOOTIF. The reason is to keep the information what bootif the user selected during ai

> * topology=direct isn't handled correctly

Just a bug. Fixed.

> * ui doesn't get all necessary infos (ip, ...)

Was related to the missing BOOTIF entry
