When registering overcloud nodes via the json inventory, the name of the node is not imported

Solution In Progress - Updated -


  • We noticed that when importing the inventory, we can have additional contents on the dictionary but it's not imported, it looks like os-cloud-config only imports the pxe_* values, and when we run "ironic node-list" the name is set to None. Is it possible to pull the object "name" from the inventory and configure this on the node name?

  • Inventory with "name" object:

            "pm_password": "mypassword", 
            "name": "compute01.fqdn.com", 
            "pm_type": "pxe_ipmitool", 
            "pm_addr": "10.X.Y.Z", 
  • Listing the nodes:
 $ ironic node-list
 | UUID                                                                         | Name
 | 97bdee17-4c9e-4e7b-aba3-fee5ead4929b | compute01.fqdn.com
  • Is it possible to take into account a "profile" object in the inventory, so we don't have to tag them via ironic or via AHC?
    Probably by including a line like this into the json dictionary: "profile":"compute"
