According to https://gitlab.suse.de/openqa/salt-pillars-openqa/-/blob/master/openqa/workerconf.sls#L738 we have a machine "redcurrent" in our config and also on https://openqa.suse.de/admin/workers/1326 I see that the machine is running tests just fine. However, you wrote "ppc9" and I assume you meant "power9". But https://openqa.suse.de/admin/workers/1326 says "POWER8". Any ideas why the mismatch?

Still, based on that I assume this is not necessarily needed for us to plan right now.

I've opened RT-ADM #180857. However I failed to reach aeisner@suse.de as well as aeisner@suse.com so just sending it to infra@suse.de for now… Sorry for the spam

  • Status changed from Workable to Rejected

As discussed with nsinger we are not aware of further problems after we fixed the boot problems software side in #68053 so we can also close this ticket as rejected as we did not conduct the firmware upgrades.
