Hi All,

Still trying to get baremetal provisioning to work, but I don't really understand the below commands. Would appreciate any help.

I have a kinda old NEC rack server that has a BMC module on it. I only have an IP address for the BMC module and that's it. I do not have a user or password
that I can set for that nor do I have the options to create one. 

Perhaps someone can explain exactly what is needed to enroll my hardware or does anyone else know of more detailed documentation?  
This is the only documentation I can find on the feature -> https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Baremetal#Hardware_Enrollment

Thank you!
