Victoria Series Release Notes¶
It is now possible to disable sequential ip addressing in the ironic inspector dnsmasq service. The
ironic::inspectorclass has the new parameter
dnsmasq_dhcp_sequential_ip(defaults to: true). Set it to
falseto disable sequential ip addressing.
The following two parameters have been added to configure the service_type parameter in authtoken middlewae.
Adds support for the
[pxe]ipxe_config_templatewhich are utilized by the
ipxeboot interface in Ironic. These settings use the manifest parameters
Adds support for the
[pxe]uefi_ipxe_bootfile_nameto be explicitly set using the
ironic::pxe::uefi_ipxe_bootfile_nameparameter has been added. This parameter is used to determine name of the efi file used to boot nodes with UEFI + iPXE.
The Ironic project has in elevated support for
ipxeto a top level node boot_interface, and removed support for it’s
[pxe]ipxe_enabledoption as this is settable per node. Removal of this option has allowed for the manifest to be cleaned up.
The manifest now no longer applies override defaults for a number of
ironic.confsettings, as they match the default settings the project utilizes. These manifest parameters are
ironic::drivers::pxe::ipxe_enabledparameter has been deprecated and has no effect moving forward. This is a result of the underlying Ironic project deprecating and removing. Use of this option will raise a warning.
Fixed an issue where dnsmasq DHCP configuration for ironic- inspector would point to the wrong UEFI iPXE bootfile. See bug: 1952652.
Fixes a potential issue where use of the
ironic::drivers::pxe::ipxe_enabledparameter would cause settings specific to
ipxeto be set overriding the
pxeboot interface’s defaults in Ironic. This resulted in operators being unable to choose to boot a node from
ipxe. Now the settings are not overriden as the
ironic::drivers::pxe::ipxe_enabledparameter for the manifest has no effect, and raises a warning if used.
Fixes support for ppc64le to allow its operation to co-exist with
pxe_transfer_protocolbeing set to
http. This is because the ppc64le archtecture does not use an intermediate boot loader to perform PXE operations, and only supports use of TFTP based transfers.
Add mysql_enable_ndb parameter to select mysql storage engine.
ironic::drivers::redfishclass supports the following parameters to provide capabilities to set more parameters of Redfish driver.
ironic::drivers::ipmi::debugparameter has been added to enable debug outputs of IPMI commands.
ironic::keystone::authtoken::interfaceparameter has been added, which can be used to set the interface parameter in authtoken middleware.
For baremetal operations on DHCPv6-stateful networks multiple IPv6 addresses can now be allocated for neutron ports created for provisioning, cleaning, rescue or inspection. The new parameter
ironic::neutron::dhcpv6_stateful_address_countcontrols the number of addresses to allocate.
ironic::drivers::inspector::region_namewas added so that operatos can specify the keystone region where identity resources are created.
The following classes were added to configure keystone credentials used in ironic-inspector.
The parameter ironic::pxe::ipxe_name_base has been added, which allows alternative ipxe files to be copied to /tftpboot/ipxe.efi. For example, setting this to ‘ipxe-snponly’ on CentOS8 would result in the source file being /usr/share/ipxe/ipxe-snponly-x86_64.efi.
Added the parameter
port_physnet_cidr_mapwhich takes a hash mapping IP subnet CIDR to physical network. When the physnet_cidr_map processing hook is enabled the physical_network property of baremetal ports is populated based on this mapping.
ironic::conductor::inspect_timeouthas been deprecated and will be removed in a future release. Use
ironic::conductor::api_urlparameter was deprecated because its actual parameter was deprecated in ironic. Use
ironic::conductor:configdrive_use_swiftparameter has been deprecated and will be removed in a future release. Use
ironic_*parameters in the
ironic::inspectorclass are deprecated and will be removed in a future release. Use parameters in the following new classes instead.
ironic::inspector::ironic_urlparameter is deprecated and now has no effect. Use
