Configure power management

Configure power managementΒΆ

MAAS supports many types of power control, from standard IPMI to non-standard types such as virsh, VMware, Nova, or even completely manual ones that require operator intervention. While most servers may use their own custom vendor management, for example, iLO or DRAC, standard IPMI controls are also supported, and you can use IPMI as shown in the following example.

To configure IPMI node power management type:

  1. In the MAAS web UI, open the Nodes page.
  2. In the list of nodes, select the one you want to configure.
  3. In the machine configuration window, go to the Power section and click the Edit button at the top-right conner.
  4. Select IPMI for Power type from the drop-down menu.
  5. Specify parameters for the IPMI power type: Power driver, IP address, Power user, Power password, and Power MAC.
  6. Click Save changes.

After saving the changes, MAAS will verify that it can manage the node through IPMI.
