Ironic dropped support for Python2 long ago,
and now Python2 is not even available in newer distros,
breaking installation if Ironic binary dependencies.
Cirros partition images are not compatible with local boot since they
don't ship grub (nor a normal root partition). This change adds a script
that builds a partition image with UEFI artifacts present. It still
cannot be booted in legacy mode, but it's a progress.
Set the tempest plugin's partition_netboot option. We need it to inform
the tempest plugin about the ability to do local boot. This option
already exists but is never set.
Also set the new default_boot_option parameter, which will be introduced
and used in Iaba563a2ecbca029889bc6894b2a7f0754d27b88.
Remove netboot from most of the UEFI jobs.
This change replaces the mount/unmount calls with a single mcopy call
to populate the vfat image with the contents of the populated temp
This means create_vfat_image can now run without any elevated
The iSCSI deploy was very easy to start with, but it has since become
apparently that it suffers from scalability and maintenance issues.
It was deprecated in the Victoria cycle and can now be removed.
Hide the guide to upgrade to hardware types since it's very outdated.
I had to remove the iBMC diagram since my SVG-fu is not enough to fix it.
Opendev infra changed py36 defaults to run on centos8 and
of course, there is no python-devel mapping on centos.
Removed the entry and adjusted the test-setup.sh script
so the databases are started locally as they are not auto
started upon installation.
The ovmf pacakge in bionic doesn't really work in our CI.
As a workaround we use the old package from xenial, but we can't keep
using it also in Ubuntu Focal.
This patch aims to convert the uefi jobs to use Ubuntu Focal as
base operating system and use the native ovmf package.
9aab525d45 added the docs
build requirement on sphinxcontrib-svg2pdfconverter which
needs the native rsvg-convert command. This change adds
the native package that provides that command to bindep.txt.
Fixes the grub2 based devstack logic and adds a grub2 CI job
such that the ironic team can safely clean-up some of the PXE
code without fear of breaking the grub2 scenario.
Pip will install libvirt-python later in the process and with pip >= 10
it will fail to remove the system version.
This is used by `bindep`  to assess if needed system packages are
It should allow easier installation of Python packages on a clean
system from source and help packagers too.
For now it is just a copy/merge of `devstack/files/[debs|rpms]/ironic`
files with added platform specifiers.
Packages have been tagged with certain bindep profiles:
- default - needed to run ironic service in production
- test - needed to compile Python dependencies and for other tox targets,
profile of this name is used by various gate jobs
- devstack - needed to setup VMs posing as HW nodes by the devstack
- imagebuild - only needed to build various types of deploy ramdisk
Note that DevStack install procedure currently does not use 'bindep',
and still relies on files in `devstack/files/...` folder.
