Prepare images for Ironic

Prepare images for Ironic

To provision bare metal servers using Ironic, you need to create special images and upload them to Glance.

The configuration of images much depends on an actual hardware. Therefore, they cannot be provided as pre-built images, and you must prepare them after you deploy Ironic.

These images include:

  • Deploy image that runs the ironic-python-agent required for the deployment and control of bare metal nodes

  • User image based on the hardware used in your non-virtualized environment


This section explains how to create the required images using the diskimage-builder tool.
