Please refer the hardware enrollment section under https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Baremetal.

1.      Ensure your hardware is under same network backbone to communicate

2.      Enroll the hardware properly as mentioned in the guide

3.      Nova baremetal driver will take care of the communication and you could see the logs in nova compute upon successful enrollment

I understand your points and that is taken care of, but how exactly is Openstack going to connect to the hardware if the hardware has no OS and no IP?
How should the hardware be prepared so I can give Openstack the information it needs to enroll the hardware?

Hi Jake,

Your physical hardware should be maximum enough to support your OS configurations and  baremetal flavor you have created.

1.       Your physical hardware should contain minimum configurations to run an operating system
2.       You need to take care of your Baremetal Flavor created WRT to your available hardware.

Hi all,

I have been following this doc https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Baremetal#Image_Requirements
to setup openstack for baremetal provisioning. I have configured oopenstack properly, created an image,
and now I am ready to enroll my physical hardware. However, there seems to be no mention of how to
prepare my physical hardware.

Does anyone know what is required and what is the process to prepare my hardware?

Thank you for your help,
