[Openstack-operators] PXE chaining

If you disable discovery/unknown hosts on both of the pxe servers, you should be able to define the machine in only one of the pxe servers and boot it reliably. I've mixed Ironic and Cobbler managed hosts on the same network this way.

Hey all, curious if anyone has explored ways to get a machine to boot from different optional PXE servers listening on the same or different NIC's? We manage clouds using PXE (at least) and we want to deploy ironic which also uses PXE. We just want to deploy Ironic clouds aside adjacent to other clouds that do not use Ironic.
