My Lab’s MAAS broke… so I decided to fresh install 3.1/snap and test the new feature to enlist machines that are already deployed.
It did not work for me… or I don’t know how to use it.
I did use the command as described. The first thing is that it rejects to set the power type with an error message that power type cannot be set without networking configuration (despite been set to manual).
Anyway, I remove the power type, and then the machine is effectively created with the name provided as deployed, obviously without any gathered data.
The problem is that when I reboot the machine, it pops as a new one, and performs the initial data gathering process where some parameters are detected.
I am pretty sure that the mac address was properly setup, that should have been used for matching the machine. But perhaps the error message about not having
what could have gone wrong?
also, can I change to deployed a machine that has been detected? the initial data-gathering process is non-destructive, right? It would be ideal if I could just force-set-deployed or something.
is that possible?
