Is the intent to migrate the existing (ix) hardware, or is this waiting until the Moonshot hardware is in place?
catlee mentioned investigating if this would be possible on existing hardware, will discuss with him today
I talked to catlee about this last week and our thinking was that given the new hardware won't be in place until late fall optimistically, I'm going to try to running it on a loaner of existing hardware and see if it works.  It I can't get it to work in a day or so, I'll try again when we have new hardware.
Neat -- I expect it should mostly "just work".  Let me know if you need a hand, e.g., with setting up scopes for the credentials you get from host-secrets.

Attached patch bug1384579.patchSplinter Review
preliminary patches, they don't work yet
Dragos, since you had this working in bug 1357147 I have a question. I noticed that the new (moonshot hardware) is running Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS and the old linux ix hardware is running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS.  Is the progress to update to Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS the same as listed here or is there a new process?

That process is for iX hardware. We don't have the HP hardware yet, but the idea for the first phase is that you will continue to PXE boot and install from kickseed just like we do for Ubuntu 12.04. There isn't an "update" path for the iX hardware, though, they're different graphics drivers. Everything is a fresh install.

BTW, you can try to get this working on iX, but I'm not sure that will just work.
I was just trying to spend < 1day getting it to work, and if it doesn't wait for the new hardware.  I just wanted to see if there was an upgrade path because every time we need to add a new talos platform for Linux, which is quite frequent these days due the needs of the quantum/stylo teams
