Bug Description

After updating my undercloud the ipxe config is broken:

# cat inspector.ipxe

dhcp || goto retry_dhcp

kernel{hiera('ironic::drivers::deploy::http_port')/agent.kernel ipa-inspection-callback-url= ipa-inspection-collectors=default,extra-hardware,logs systemd.journald.forward_to_console=yes BOOTIF=${mac} ipa-debug=1 ipa-inspection-dhcp-all-interfaces=1 initrd=agent.ramdisk || goto retry_boot
initrd{hiera('ironic::drivers::deploy::http_port')/agent.ramdisk || goto retry_boot

This makes the introspection hang forever

Wes - Is it possible the CI job is using a cached IPA image/kernel?

This commit added configuration of a new timeout argument, and in my local environment introspection fails (spins forever failing to boot the IPA kernel with an unrecognised option --timeout error) - rebuilding the IPA image/kernel fixed it.

Steven Hardy (shardy) wrote :

Ok, correction - rebuilding the image didn't fix it - I also changed the ipxe config, adding the --timeout options back it still fails (doh!)

dtantsur explained this depends on the ipxe rom version (of the virt host, not the undercloud), this is the failing version (c4bce43 is not working, I think 6366fa7a is the version we require):

ipxe-roms-qemu-20160127-1.git6366fa7a.el7.noarch is the package required on the virt host

This issue was fixed in the openstack/instack-undercloud development milestone.
