Red Hat Training

A Red Hat training course is available for Red Hat OpenStack Platform


This document provides instructions for installing and configuring the Bare Metal service (ironic) in the overcloud, and using the service to provision and manage physical machines for end users.

The Bare Metal service components are also used by the Red Hat OpenStack Platform director, as part of the undercloud, to provision and manage the bare metal nodes that make up the OpenStack environment (the overcloud). For information on how the director uses the Bare Metal service, see Director Installation and Usage.
