I have a little concern here regarding the baremetal deployment where we use ipmi as power
management interface. Are you going to use the existing ipmi util we have or do you have a
separate solution for this.

As noted in the FS, the feature is agnostic of a specific out-of-band technology and will
by default ship with a ipmitool based driver to support hosts with IPMI 2.0 enabled interface.

The baremetal plugin uses Python based afaik, while the out-of-band ipmitool driver will be
a Java wrapper around ‘ipmitool’. The baremetal plugin maintainer in future can
refactor their plugin to use the out-of-band management subsystem to manage machines without
using a specific/hard-coded driver (ipmi util etc).
