ironic: Get dynamic IP address for volume connector

Registered by Hironori Shiina on 2017-09-07

Ironic virt driver supports booting an instance from a volume since Pike[1]. This blueprint proposes passing an IP address to cinder for attaching a volume when the storage network is manged by neutron. An IP address is required from a few cinder backend drivers for access controlling so on. Currently, an IP address of a volume connector can be got when a static IP address is registered in ironic as a volume connector resource. In case where an IP address is set dynamically, we have to retrieve the IP address by tracing a few resources such as ironic ports and VIFs. This blueprint will implement this retrieving.

    Ironic: Get IP address for volume connector

Approved as a specless blueprint for Queens. This is a follow up to a specless blueprint which was approved and completed in Pike. From my understanding, it's just adding support to boot from volume with Ironic for network storage backends. -- mriedem 20171005

    [WIP] Ironic: Get IP address for volume connector from ports/portgroups

There is another patch remaining for this but since I think the main one merged I'm going to mark this complete for Queens. We can follow up with the port group change in Rocky. -- mriedem 20180127
