HBA Discovery driver

Registered by Chilumukuru Amarnath on 2014-04-04

Currently, there is no mechanism in ironic to discover HBA information. HBA Discovery driver for baremetal compute nodes in Ironic aims to discover the HBA information like HBA Model, HBA vendor name, firmware version, driver version and WWN details. This information is required to utilize the required HBA for FC SAN boot operations. This can be also used to assign appropriate HBA for performance intensive workloads.
After a baremetal node is enrolled with the ironic, HBA discovery driver is executed to fetch the HBA information. This data is registered in the ironic database for later use.
This blueprint complements the system information discovery blueprint (Utility Ramdisk) for ironic that is located at https://blueprints.launchpad.net/ironic/+spec/utility-ramdisk.

Whiteboard

Are you planning on adding this HBA discovery driver as part of the teeth-agent being discussed in the utility-ramdisk BP? Looks like a good place for it.
