We have a lot of options for this task.
The main thing we're discussing is removing the complexity of puppet patching / getting MAC into DHCP configuration prior to installation.
Some options for this process:
- IPv6 autoconfiguration
- DHCP proxy to netbox API (option 82)
- iPXE to get a parameterized network setup based on hostname
We need to flesh out these and choose an option, and push it forward. Some of these require tracking MAC and some don't. It'd be easier in general to not need the MAC to be manually entered.
