Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Request for comments: Out-of-band Management for CloudStack (new feature)

Hi Ahmad,

Thanks. Good to see you again on the ML, after a long break.

The IPMI simulation is not tied with the ACS simulator (plugin) but it’s a separate Python
based tool (also an importable library). Since it’s Python based, it would be difficult
to tied it with the simulator plugin. Instead of using ipmisim or the default ipmitool driver
that ships with this feature, the simulator plugin can have a separate dummy driver implementation.

The Marvin test will be Python based, so it will be easiest to tie ipmisim with it (no external
setup needed for example); while to test this feature manually one can easily install ipmisim
and run it separately.

qq: is the ipmi simulation tied, or planned
to be tied to 'the simulator'? It would be interesting to see those tied
together. regardless... awesome work.
