Hello Jim,

Thanks for rising this question.

My personal feeling that we don't need to tune tests that won't pass due to
design limitations.
It is Ironic pre-requirement to have network access from control plane to
server during provisioning.
Until Ironic Neutron integration is completed we may skip this test.
