[Openstack-operators] Nova not powering on baremetal instances, ironic

So i was able to solve the problem of nova not creating ports, however when
it creates ports it creates normal ovs ports and they always stays down
because they are unable to be bound to the hypervisor host( the provisioned

After durther investigation, i creates a port with vnic_type of baremetal,
and binding type of unbound, yet it always stays down and i can not reach
or ping the instance

Any thoughts ?

Thank you
