Thanks. Yes it is like that. First create a baseline that contains a given configuration for Raid/Bios, firmware and OS. Then after a new server event, set the proper firmware level according to the baseline, configure the raid and configure the Bios settings. And finally kicking off the OS deploy.

Regards,

Erik

Are you talking about things like Ready-State configuration?
See URL's below.
http://docs.openstack.org/developer/ironic/deploy/raid.html
http://docs.openstack.org/developer/tripleo-docs/advanced_deployment/ready_state.html

Most OSP deployments expect the H/W to be readily configured prior to deployment. Not sure if the above would be ready for prime-time..
