Description

Motivation

The machine "power8" is currently not available for o3 meaning there is currently no ppc testing in o3 at all. Use the existing machine qa-power8 for o3 ppc testing

Acceptance criteria

  • AC0: We know what kind of setup we need (baremetal vs. HMC managed, e.g. ask test maintainers)
  • AC1: We can manage VMs on qa-power8 usable for openQA (either baremetal or HMC based)

Suggestions

  • Wait for #125216
  • Do the other three suggestions

Out of scope

  • Install openQA-worker on the machine
  • Create SUSE-IT EngInfra ticket to move the machine's ethernet interface based on racktables information to the o3 network (VLAN 662)
  • Add according networking information on o3 into /etc/dnsmasq.d/openqa.conf
  • Configure the machine OS for dhcp client mode and ensure the machine gets an address from o3 dnsmasq
  • Ensure the system is able to execute openQA tests from o3
