Hm, Alan is the expert here, but I thought we already did that. There was something like "defaultdb" or something that was set up for this, and it already pulled the default configuration down. Maybe I'm misunderstanding what you mean, though.What we have now is a hardcoded configuration file that gets sent down to all managed nodes on startup. The new controller, though, is replacing having an actual file on disk that gets pulled: instead, it generates the configuration at request time. So I _could_ have the generator return that configuration if it's given a mac address that's not in the database. But I think we should be sure that's theright thing to do.
Here's a question that Alan can answer: If a node has a NIC that's not in the database, then the configuration that's returned will return nothing for deleting the files for that NIC in /etc/sysconfig/networking-scripts. So, when networking is restarted, those new NICs will come up with whatever local network configuration is present, yes? -- Darryl L.
