Chapter 11. Bare Metal (ironic) Parameters

ParameterDescription

IronicCleaningDiskErase

Type of disk cleaning before and between deployments. full for full cleaning. metadata to clean only disk metadata (partition table). The default value is: full

IronicCleaningNetwork

Name or UUID of the overcloud network used for cleaning bare metal nodes. The default value of provisioning can be left during the initial deployment (when no networks are created yet) and should be changed to an actual UUID in a post-deployment stack update.

IronicDefaultBootOption

How to boot the bare metal instances. Set to local to use local bootloader (requires grub2 for partition images). Set to netboot to make the instances boot from controllers using PXE/iPXE. The default value is: local

IronicDefaultNetworkInterface

Network interface implementation to use by default. Set to flat to use one flat provider network. Set to neutron to make OpenStack Bare Metal (ironic) interact with the OpenStack Networking (neutron) ML2 driver to enable other network types and certain advanced networking features. Requires IronicProvisioningNetwork to be correctly set. The default value is: flat

IronicEnabledDrivers

Enabled OpenStack Bare Metal (ironic) drivers. The default value is: ['pxe_ipmitool', 'pxe_drac', 'pxe_ilo']

IronicEnabledHardwareTypes

Enabled OpenStack Bare Metal (ironic) hardware types. The default value is: ['ipmi', 'redfish']

IronicEnabledManagementInterfaces

Enabled management interface implementations. Each hardware type must have at least one valid implementation enabled. The default value is: ['ipmitool', 'redfish']

IronicEnabledPowerInterfaces

Enabled power interface implementations. Each hardware type must have at least one valid implementation enabled. The default value is: ['ipmitool', 'redfish']

IronicIPXEEnabled

Whether to use iPXE instead of PXE for deployment. The default value is: True

IronicIPXEPort

Port to use for serving images when iPXE is used. The default value is: 8088

IronicInspectorIPXEEnabled

Whether to use iPXE for inspection. The default value is: True

IronicInspectorInterface

Network interface on which inspection dnsmasq will listen. The default value is: br-ex

IronicInspectorIpRange

Temporary IP range that will be given to nodes during the inspection process. This should not overlap with any range that OpenStack Networking (neutron) DHCP allocates, but it has to be routeable back to ironic-inspector. This option has no meaningful defaults, and thus is required.

IronicInspectorUseSwift

Whether to use Swift for storing introspection data. The default value is: True

IronicPassword

The password for the Bare Metal service and database account.

IronicProvisioningNetwork

Name or UUID of the overcloud network used for provisioning of bare metal nodes if IronicDefaultNetworkInterface is set to neutron. The default value of provisioning can be left during the initial deployment (when no networks are created yet) and should be changed to an actual UUID in a post-deployment stack update. The default value is: provisioning
