Re: cloudstack reset VM password files


Hi

Nowadays the cloud-init [1] project supports cloudstack out of the box
and we switched our templates to only use cloud-init.

Unfortunately the docs regarding cloudstack is not that great (it is on
my list to give back my finding). There are some great docs here
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Cloud-init.

Our config under config dir /etc/cloud/cloud.cfg.d/ has two files

- 80_root.cfg
- 99_cloudstack.cfg

80_root.cfg contents is...

system_info:
  default_user:
    name: root
disable_root: 0
ssh_pwauth: 1

...and 99_cloudstack.cfg looks like...

datasource:
  CloudStack: {}
  None: {}
datasource_list:
  - CloudStack

Note that cloud-init has a ton of great features beside the support of
cloudstack.

Hope that helps

René
