Subject Re: [QUESTION] baremetal router
Date Tue, 05 Apr 2016 09:10:38 GMT
Hi Daan,

Yes, this should run only in Virtual Router. Instead of moving it to existing “if” block,
better to have a seperate check only for normal router, since we don’t support baremetal
deployment in VPC.

Regarding the later question, with the current implementation I don’t think we can distinguish
whether PXE service enabled on the router or not, or we can also initiate this agent on VR
from management server using sshCmdHelper just before deploying the baremetal instance.
