Newton Series Release Notes


New Features

  • Add the ability to specify a name string for the provisioning_network in ironic_config using the transform_to argument. Add cleaning_network_name and provisioning_network_name options to ::ironic::conductor class. Theirs names will be automatically converted to UUIDs and appropriate config options will be set.

  • Add port_setup_delay parameter to ::ironic::conductor class. Defines delay value to wait for Neutron agents to setup sufficient DHCP configuration.

  • added class for network interfaces management

Bug Fixes

  • Fixes ownership of /var/log/ironic/ironic-dbsync.log before trying to run ironic-dbsync. This file was owned by root previously.


New Features

  • Passes parameter to keystone authtoken define to manage python-memcache package install.


Bug Fixes

  • Remove “dhcp” command from the introspection iPXE script. It is redundant, and may even break booting when the provisioning NIC is not the first one.


New Features

  • Add hooks for external install & svc management This adds defined anchor points for external modules to hook into the software install, config and service dependency chain. This allows external modules to manage software installation (virtualenv, containers, etc) and service management (pacemaker) without needing rely on resources that may change or be renamed.
