In continuation to improving my work as a QA engineer I continue to automate deploying environments. After very productive work with Openshift we need automated work with real hardware nodes. For this purpose I chose Openstack Ironic which provide mechanism of deploying virtual hdd images. For testing purpose Openstack provide a tool which allow to emulate IPMI - virtualbmc, but for several reasons this tool is not very convenient for me and my testing environment, so I'm going to use the Qemu virtual BMC device together with the OpenIPMI simulator.
