This is an Ansible playbook (and roles) for spinning up Bifrost.

Bifrost is a system that leverages Ironic to bootstrap baremetal machines using PXE booting and installing an operating system via disk image.

Bifrost itself is also an Ansible playbook, but, it requires some tweaks that are both not trivial. Use of this playbook helps to bootstrap some of the configuration of Bifrost itself and provides an example configuration for your network.


Simply clone this repo and run it with:

$ ansible-playbook -i inventory/bifrost.inventory bifrost.yml

But, you're even more likely going to configure it first...


Inventory: Copy the ./inventory/example/ into a new inventory environment directory (e.g. ./inventory/testing/).

You'll then want to create your own suite of JSON inventory that's specific to the baremetal nodes that you're going to manage with Bifrost.

More on this later, but, you'll find the file you want to customize as ./inventory/<your_environment>/group_vars/bifrost.yml
