1. Getting the DHCP-assigned IP from a cloud-init clone

    I followed the instructions here and it worked as expected but I can't see the IP address assigned to the instance since it was assigned by DHCP. I can't SSH to this machine if I don't know the IP address. Obviously, accessing the console doesn't work. I ticked the "Qemu Agent" checkbox in the...
  2. Adding a route through cloud-init

    Greetings I'm testing cloud-init on a brand new Ubuntu 18.04 VM. My problem is that the IP of the VM and the GW are not on the same subnet (which is quite usual for a floating IP), so I guess the whole process of setting network fails. I can see the parameters in...
  3. Cloud-Init Options

    I'm a bit confused about what cloud-init options are supported by Proxmox. The 5.2 announcement blog post says: However, the cloud-init docs make no mention of configuring mount points or post install scripts. What am I missing?

    Hello, I have tried a few images, i am currently trying CentOS 7 Generic Image and when it loads up, it will update cloud-init and the os and i cant login via the console even if i change the root password via Cloud-Init within proxmox. i have also disabled these in the cloud.conf ssh_pwauth...

  6. [SOLVED] Resize disk of cloud-init clones

    Greetings. I am trying to figure out a way to resize disks of cloud-init created clones. At the moment created VMs have just as much storage as the image. Note: I want to provision Centos 7 only VMs. If anyone can provide a different solution to provision centos VMs with custom disk space you...
  7. VM live migration fails when Cloud-Init image is attached

    Hi guys, I setup a 3-node experimental cluster with LVM on iSCSI (FreeNAS) as storage. Live migration fails when the CloudInit drive is attached but it works fine without the CloudInit drive. Is this normal? Live migration with the CloudInit drive attached gives this error...
  8. [SOLVED] Cloud-Init Default Settings

    Moin, Kann man irgendwo globale Cloud-init Defaults setzen und wird der cloud-init support in Zukunft noch ausgebaut? Was mir im Moment fehlt ist zb der qemu-guest-agent in den ubuntu cloud images. Da wäre es hilfreich eine Option zu haben die den agent via Cloud-init gleich installiert. Ich...
  9. Cloud-init install packages

  10. Cloud-Init Docs

    The docs for cloud-init are a little thin on the ground being such a new feature. What is the expected behaviour for this in proxmox? Should the cloud-init drive remain always connected? if so, after the machine is shut down and then started again, it fails with the error: qemu-img: Could not...

  12. What kind of metadata will cloud-init use?

    Hello, First of all, any ETA on cloud-init? It's very important to us as it simplifies deployment hugely. I understand there might be support in a "testing" branch. How could I play with that, any docs? Second, will Proxmox use configdrive for metadata? Thank you
