Armband issued an exception request for MS3 due to the same issue, extensive changes to the MIrantas install system under the Fuel project. MS3 , with virtual deployment that met the minimum requirements was completed roughly 2 weeks ago. But Armband requires bare metal (real set of 6 servers) deployment for full operation and MCP does not yet support bare metal. Therefore, Armband will be breaking new ground, working with the Mirantis engineer who is available to assist, to create bare metal deployment support. Note: Armband will seek to do so in an architecture neutral way such that it should work on x86-based systems as well. It was hoped to have been completed by 28July but is taking longer than expected.
We have a much clearer update as to what is required now and we estimate about 10 working days (we are 2 days in already) to intersect again_ see plan below, we also buffer in 3 days and therefore target 25Aug2017 . This will not affect MS6 as the documentation effort is highly leveraged and in any case, with the exception of some release notes unique to the MCP status, is not affected by the development work still underway.
