[openstack-dev] [ironic] Question about pxe_ssh drivers

We have been integrating OpenStack Ironic into our own OpenStack Distribution.
Thanks to help from the mailing list, we’ve been able to successfully ‘nova boot’ a bare metal instance on an ironic node using the pxe_ipmitool drivers.
Thanks again for all the help.
A QUESTION about some future work we are starting to look at.
We are interested in using Ironic to boot smaller devices that do NOT support IPMI.
I believe that there are other drivers such as pxe_ssh for managing resets and power on/off of such servers.
But i don’t understand how these work at a high-level.
- where do the pxe_ssh drivers SSH to ?

> but for power on/off ... it can’t be the ironic node itself
Can somebody provide or point me to a brief explanation of how Ironic can be used for
serving loads to devices NOT supporting IPMI ?
thanks in advance,
