[Xen-devel] [OSSTEST PATCH 0/5] Support for PDU *and* IPMI

From: Ian Jackson <Ian.Jackson@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>

We have been having trouble with our PDU ports: relays are getting
stuck.  This is affecting a distressing variety of machines and both
our PDUs.

We have a theory the relays will work a lot better if we do not open
and close them under the load of the main system.

Deployment of this change for any one test box is as follows:
 * plug the test box's management port into the test network
 * give it an ip address and check that ipmi seems to work
 * set the test box not to come on after AC power loss
 * configure the ansible playbook to specify the appropriate
   config rune (see the final patch).

Currently, I have done this for two of our boxes (rimava[01]) which
are out of service because of relay trouble.  I am about to run
a full commissioning test with these changes.

Ian Jackson (5):
  PDU::ipmi: Do not return until the power state has changed
  PDU::ipmi: Better username/password configuration
  PowerMethod: New "nest" psuedo-method
  PowerMethod: New pause functionality
  PDU::pause: Better pause time configuration
