Foreman Discovery 2.0

A session at Config Management Camp 2015

Tuesday 3rd February, 2015

12:00pm to 12:40pm (WET)

Foreman Discovery is the Foreman projects solution to the metal-as-a-service problem (discovering, registering, and provisioning bare metal systems without recording the MAC address beforehand).

In this talk, we'll do a quick intro to Discovery for those unfamiliar with it, before going on to cover the new features in Discovery 2.0. This will include (but is not limited to):

  • newly redesigned bootable Discovery Image
  • automated provisioning of newly discovered hosts without user intervention (via rules defined in the UI)
  • routing the discovery traffic through the smart proxy for segregated networks
  • Hammer plugin for commandline discovery
