Hi all,

I'm working on bug [1] and have code in review[2].  The bug wants neutron's 
port['mac_address'] to be updatable to handle the case where an ironic server's 
nic is replaced.  A comment in the review suggests that we only allow mac 
address update when the port status is not ACTIVE.  While I've made another 
change which may (or may not) address the underlying concern, I want to ask if 
port status is correct for ironic server ports.  When I run devtest (tripleo) 
on my laptop, I get VM ironic servers, which when booted all have neutron ports 
with 'binding:vif_type': 'binding_failed' and 'status': 'DOWN'.  Is this 
expected?  Does this happen with hardware ironic servers?

Thanks in advance!
