Test Plan Steps

Step 1. Determine which nodes can be used as bare metal, aka exclusive node

Blocked, Bare Metal Support Introduced week 06/18/2012, should be available fort test starting 06/25/2012.

Step 2. Obtain a list of OS images which can be loaded on bare metal nodes from the ExoGENI team.

The list should be based on successful bare metal loads by ExoGENI team or others in GENI community and should be available on a public web page. At the time of feature delivery, need to request list of images that are available for Linux Bare Metal nodes as well verifying the external advertisement of the images.

Step 3. Obtain 2 licensed recent Microsoft OS images for bare metal nodes from the site (BBN)

There is no plan to support MS Windows, this test will replace MS Windows with a Custom BBN supplied image.

Step 4. Reserve and boot 2 bare metal node using the Microsoft image.

Replace Windows with Linux, no Windows support

Step 5. Obtain a recent Linux OS image for bare metal nodes from the ExoGENI team's successful test list

Step 6. Reserve and boot a bare metal node using this Linux OS image.

Step 7. Release bare metal resource.

Step 8. Modify Aggregate resource allocation for the rack to add 1 additional bare metal node (2 total) for use in experimenter test cases.
