os_ironic_node - Activate/Deactivate Bare Metal Resources from OpenStack

New in version 2.0.

Synopsis

  • Deploy to nodes controlled by Ironic.

Requirements

The below requirements are needed on the host that executes this module.

  • python >= 2.7
  • openstacksdk

Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
api_timeout
How long should the socket layer wait before timing out for API calls. If this is omitted, nothing will be passed to the requests library.
auth
Dictionary containing auth information as needed by the cloud's auth plugin strategy. For the default password plugin, this would contain auth_url, username, password, project_name and any information about domains if the cloud supports them. For other plugins, this param will need to contain whatever parameters that auth plugin requires. This parameter is not needed if a named cloud is provided or OpenStack OS_* environment variables are present.
auth_type
Name of the auth plugin to use. If the cloud uses something other than password authentication, the name of the plugin should be indicated here and the contents of the auth parameter should be updated accordingly.
availability_zone
Ignored. Present for backwards compatibility
cacert
A path to a CA Cert bundle that can be used as part of verifying SSL API requests.
cert
A path to a client certificate to use as part of the SSL transaction.
cloud
Named cloud or cloud config to operate against. If cloud is a string, it references a named cloud config as defined in an OpenStack clouds.yaml file. Provides default values for auth and auth_type. This parameter is not needed if auth is provided or if OpenStack OS_* environment variables are present. If cloud is a dict, it contains a complete cloud configuration like would be in a section of clouds.yaml.
config_drive
A configdrive file or HTTP(S) URL that will be passed along to the node.
deploy
bool
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes ←
Indicates if the resource should be deployed. Allows for deployment logic to be disengaged and control of the node power or maintenance state to be changed.
instance_info
Definition of the instance information which is used to deploy the node. This information is only required when an instance is set to present.
image_disk_format
The type of image that has been requested to be deployed.
image_source
An HTTP(S) URL where the image can be retrieved from.
image_checksum
The checksum of image_source.
interface
(added in 2.3)
    Choices:
  • public ←
  • internal
  • admin
Endpoint URL type to fetch from the service catalog.

aliases: endpoint_type
ironic_url
If noauth mode is utilized, this is required to be set to the endpoint URL for the Ironic API. Use with "auth" and "auth_type" settings set to None.
key
A path to a client key to use as part of the SSL transaction.
maintenance
bool
    Choices:
  • no ←
  • yes
A setting to allow the direct control if a node is in maintenance mode.
maintenance_reason
A string expression regarding the reason a node is in a maintenance mode.
power
    Choices:
  • present ←
  • absent
A setting to allow power state to be asserted allowing nodes that are not yet deployed to be powered on, and nodes that are deployed to be powered off.
region_name
Name of the region.
state
    Choices:
  • present ←
  • absent
Indicates desired state of the resource
timeout
(added in 2.1)
Default:
180
An integer value representing the number of seconds to wait for the node activation or deactivation to complete.
uuid
globally unique identifier (UUID) to be given to the resource.
verify
bool
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes
Whether or not SSL API requests should be verified. Before 2.3 this defaulted to True.

aliases: validate_certs
wait
bool

(added in 2.1)
    Choices:
  • no ←
  • yes
A boolean value instructing the module to wait for node activation or deactivation to complete before returning.

Notes

Note

  • The standard OpenStack environment variables, such as OS_USERNAME may be used instead of providing explicit values.
  • Auth information is driven by os-client-config, which means that values can come from a yaml config file in /etc/ansible/openstack.yaml, /etc/openstack/clouds.yaml or ~/.config/openstack/clouds.yaml, then from standard environment variables, then finally by explicit parameters in plays. More information can be found at http://docs.openstack.org/developer/os-client-config
