The tl;dr is that UEFI NVRAM is in encoded in UTF-16, and when we run the efibootmgr command, we can get unicode characters back. Except we previously were forcing everything to be treated as UTF-8 due to the way oslo.concurrency's processutils module works. This could be observed with UTF character 0x00FF which raises up a nice exception when we try to decode it. Anyhow! while fixing handling of this, we discovered we could get basically the cruft out of the NVRAM, by getting what was most likey a truncated string out of our own test VMs. As such, we need to also permit decoding to be tollerant of failures. This could be binary data or as simple as flipped bits which get interpretted invalid characters. As such, we have introduced such data into one of our tests involving UEFI record de-duplication.

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.
