Nova currently allows a graphical console to be used for virtual instances. The Ironic driver does not implement the VNC console. Nodes often have a graphical console available via IPMI, and Ironic could expose a VNC server to Nova. That would ultimately provide a graphical console in Horizon to end users.

That way, nova get-vnc-console would return a valid response, and would allow a user to have a graphical console on the physical server.

$ nova get-vnc-console 99694c1e-6327-4d58-9466-87f7265958af novnc
