Ironic Python Agent

Team and repository tags



An agent for controlling and deploying Ironic controlled baremetal nodes.

The ironic-python-agent works with the agent driver in Ironic to provision the node. Starting with ironic-python-agent running on a ramdisk on the unprovisioned node, Ironic makes API calls to ironic-python-agent to provision the machine. This allows for greater control and flexibility of the entire deployment process.

The ironic-python-agent may also be used with the original Ironic pxe drivers as of the Kilo OpenStack release.

Building the IPA deployment ramdisk

For more information see the Image Builder section of the Ironic Python Agent developer guide.

Using IPA with devstack

This is covered in the Deploying Ironic with DevStack section of the Ironic dev-quickstart guide.
