Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Request for comments: Out-of-band Management for CloudStack (new feature)
Date Thu, 03 Mar 2016 11:37:18 GMT
Hi Wido,

The feature does not assumption IPv4 or IPv6, it’s upto the driver and the address you provide.
Presently, the driver simply forks out a ipmitool process with a bunch of validated arguments.
So, if the driver can reach to the specified address/port  (address can be a fqdn, ipv4 or
ipv6 address) it will work with your ipv6 servers. (if you can do a ipmitool <args>
<cmd> from the mgmt server host, the feature will work in your env)

>> Hi all,
>> I want to propose this new feature for CloudStack, to support out-of-band management
for CloudStack.
>> In practice, most hosts have a out-of-band management such as iLO or iDRAC (that
can support IPMI 2.0 for example). The idea is to allow admins to access this out-of-band
management interface. Initially power-state related operations will be supported such as power
on/off/reset etc. and a background service to synchronize the power states of the out-of-band
management enabled hosts.
