Re: cloudstack reset VM password files


I can also highly recommend cloud-init. We use it for our templates as well. There is also a Windows analogue of it ( that I recently used to finally get password functionality to work properly on Windows Server 2016.

Thank you René,

I will take it from here and test it. Some documentation will be on the way as well.

Best regards,

Subject: Re: cloudstack reset VM password files


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

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

- 80_root.cfg
- 99_cloudstack.cfg

80_root.cfg contents is...

   name: root
disable_root: 0
ssh_pwauth: 1

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

 CloudStack: {}
 None: {}
 - CloudStack

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

Hope that helps
