Is there any way to disable the automatic enlistment/commission->shutdown process for machines which have not been added to MaaS, but do attempt to PXE boot to the MaaS Rack Controller? We’re using an external DHCP service, and pointing one of it’s subnets to the MaaS Rack Controller using boot options 66/67. This is working well for machines which we allow MaaS to control from end to end.
However, there are cases where our hardware installation team would like to manually image a machine on the subnet for purposes of hardware debugging or initial setup. It causes a great deal of confusion, especially if they’re a new member, when a machine continues to automatically shut itself off after every boot attempt.
Ideally in our scenario, once a machine has been commissioned, MaaS would allow it to just continue on to it’s OS on the next boot, and if a machine has not yet been added to MaaS, it would not automatically enlist.
Thank you very much for any pointers, your help is greatly appreciated!
