How to install a new NIC driver in the overcloud images of Red Hat OpenStack Platform 10

This guide makes the following assumptions:

  • the hosts use new NICs which are not supported by the current RHEL kernel
  • no other NICs can be used for introspection and deployment
  • both introspection and deployment fail due to the absence of a working driver
  • for testing purposes only, a Red Hat unsupported driver from the vendor is installed into the overcloud images
