[atomic-devel] catch-22: diagnostic tools on Atomic Host


In my bare metal testing, I've found a few issues.

One of them is that AH doesn't ship with a lot of diagnostic tools.  The
general prescription is to install them via containers.

However, if the problem you're having prevents docker from starting,
then you're kind of stuck.  In my case, one of my nodes was missing a
bunch of key files.  I suspect a bad SSD, but since there's no disk
diagnostic tools in the base image on AH, I can't actually check that.
And since some of the missing files are ones which docker needs, I can't
install a container.

I'm not sure what the answer to this is; I'm reluctant to recommend
installing a whole suite of diagnostic tools just for the case of a
bare-metal user who has a problem.  But on the other hand, the current
situation isn't really vialble for bare-metal users either.
