2. Development Work
Installing OpenStack on low-end hardware (1 NIC, no IPMI)
I'm guessing IPMI is a requirement of the Ironic driver.
or in VMs with nested virt.
This would work with the overcloud approach.
Personally, I have some NUCs for a personal OpenStack cluster. I also have access to an internal OpenStack cloud and I want to test ODL for Neutron on that.
What it seem like we want is to get the capabilities of the Undercloud installable on a single Fedora box, and then be able to install the Overcloud on top of that. An "undercloud light" based on libvirt?
Ultra simple deployment architecture (no HA, one controller, N compute nodes, or all-in-one on a home server).
Personally, I'm OK manually powering on a host (when prompted) to PXE boot an undercloud host. I don't know if it's even possible, but if we could detect that hosts have only one NIC, using the same NIC for management, data and provisioning, that would be awesome.
