I would hope yes to all, but there is a lot of hard work there. Some things there require neutron to configure physical switches. Some require a guest agent in the image to get cinder working, or cinder controlled hardware. And all require developers interested enough in making it happen.

No time frame on any of it.

Hi,Fox Kevin M

Thanks for your help.

Also,I want to know whether these features will be implemented in Ironic?

Do we have a plan to implement them?

No to questions 1, 3, and 4. Yes to 2, but very minimally.

Hello, all

I’m trying to install and configure Ironic service, something confused me.
I create two neutron networks, public network and private network.
Private network is used to deploy physical machines
Public network is used to provide floating ip.

(1)     Private network type can be VLAN or VXLAN? (In install guide, the network type is flat)

(2)     The network of deployed physical machines can be managed by neutron?

(3)     Different tenants can have its own network to manage physical machines?

(4)     Does the ironic provide some mechanism for deployed physical machines

to use storage such as shared storage,cinder volume?
