Thank you Anne,
I've a question about that doc. It says in the middle:

"Configure Compute Service to use the Bare Metal Service
The Compute Service needs to be configured to use the Bare Metal 
Service’s driver. The configuration file for the Compute Service is 
typically located at /etc/nova/nova.conf. This configuration file must 
be modified on the Compute Service’s controller nodes and compute nodes."

I'm puzzled: if I configure the controller node's nova.conf using


I presume that I cannot instantiate anymore 'regular' virtual machine, 
but only real node. Am I wrong ?

Can be the two methods (virtual and baremetal) be mixed in the same cloud ?
I mean: instantiate virtual machines on some compute node, and baremetal 
using other compute nodes ?

thank you,
