I think you can do it with rudimentary anti-affinity and affinity rules
in Nova now. However I believe this would be supported by the instance
grouping spec:


There is also a Tuskar specific blueprint about this that I think would
build on top of the instance grouping.


I think that this may have to end up in the Ironic scheduler, as nova
compute nodes will potentially have many baremetal nodes. So a request
will land in Ironic that specifies a desire for a node "not in group
rack_1" or "in group rack_5".
