new machine appears, it PXEboots (the same kernel as selected for Commissioning), and is available to accept (maas $PROFILE machines accept-all) and then we Commission. I appreciate in some contexts administrators may select some to commission one way or another … but it seems to me that we often use the same kernel 3 times, Enlistment, Commission and then Deploy. Seems like one ought to be able to elect to have nodes go straight to Commission (and then only 1 boot’s required). I suspect that going straight to Deploy would be less popular (except for context where 80++% of the nodes all get the same payload, but that might be a nice feature as well.
No doubt I simply don’t understand the rationale … so if there’s a documented reason for why we do it this way, I’d appreciate a pointer. If not, either an explanation or an RFE would be great ;>
