[Ovirt-devel] Re: Default configuration for a new managed node...

+++ Darryl L. Pierce [27/08/08 13:44 -0400]:
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 the
right 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,
