Xena Series Release Notes¶
ironic::conductorclass now supports the following two new parameters.
ironic::disk_utilsclass has been added.
ironic::pxe::tftp_use_xinetdparameter has been added. When this parameter is set to
false, the ironic-dnsmasq-tftp-server service, which actually manages a dnsmasq process, is used instead of xinetd, to implement TFTP server. Note that the dnsmasq service is currently available only in RDO.
The pxe parameter uefi_pxe_bootfile_name is now managed by puppet, keeping the ironic default of bootx64.efi.
The shim EFI binary is copied to the TFTP root directory, to a file named the value of uefi_pxe_bootfile_name. The grub EFI binary is copied to the TFTP root directory to a file named grubx64.efi.
With these changes, using the pxe boot driver with UEFI boot will result in a grub network boot which is Secure Boot capable.
ironic::pxeclass properly installs the pxelinux.0 file using the separate
pxelinuxpackage in Debian and Ubuntu. The new
pxelinux_file_pathparameter can be used to determine the source path to locate the file. When this parameter is set to false then the class does not manage the file.
The wrong source directory to copy syslinux files in Debiand or Ubuntu has been fixed.
Fixed an issue where dnsmasq DHCP configuration for ironic- inspector would point to the wrong UEFI iPXE bootfile. See bug: 1952652.
tftpd-happackage is installed insted of the
tftpdpackage in Debian and Ubuntu.
ironic::logging::watch_log_fileparameter has been added. The new
ironic::inspector::logging::watch_log_fileparameter has been added.
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.
ironic::inspector::healthcheckclass has been added.
Adds new purge_config parameter. When set to true, the policy file is cleared during configuration process. This allows to remove any existing rules before applying them or clean the file when all policies got removed.
ironic::drivers::pxe::pxe_append_paramsparameter has been deprecated in favor of the new
ironic::inspector::policyclass has been added to support policy settings for ironic-inspector.
ironic::json_rpcto set parameters for configuring json-rpc has been added. Please set credentials for json-rpc using this class.
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.
An explict ironic
enabled_hardware_typessetting has been removed from
puppet-ironicas it matches the Ironic default and the default override prohibits inclusion of additional default enabled hardware types the OpenStack Ironic project may choose to ship in the future.
ironic_api_paste_iniresource type has been deprecated and will be removed in a future release.
ironic::config::ironic_api_paste_iniparameter has been deprecated and has no effect now. This parameter will be removed in a future release.
Deprecates integration for Ironic’s Bifrost sub-project.
Bifrost serves a similar purpose as puppet-ironic, in so much as the embedded configuration lags behind and ultimately is no longer appropriate for a bifrost deployment. If you wish to deploy bifrost, please make use of the bifrost-cli tool or Ansible playbooks noted in Bifrost’s documentation.
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.
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::drivers::pxe::uefi_ipxe_bootfile_namemanifest parameter, however this value is defaulted to
snponly.efiwhich is anticipated to become the default in Ironic sometime in the Xena development cycle.
Fedora is no longer supported.
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.
ironic::drivers::pxe::ip_versionparameter has been deprecated for removal. Please anticipate this option to be removed in a future release. This option has been redundant since the Ussuri release of Ironic. Use of this option raises a warning.
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.
Support for the audit middleware options has been added.
There is now a new policy_dirs parameter in the ironic::policy class, so one can set a custom path.
Removing max_time_interval because it’s been deprecated for a year now and it’s not used in any projects since 2013.
