- I have a Ubuntu 20.04 LTS Installation on Nutanix AOS which serves as a template
- This Ubuntu Tempate installation is a basic Ubuntu installation (clicked through basic installation, cloud-init installed)
- Now i want users to be able to deploy a new VM as a clone from this Ubuntu template and passing via “Custom Script” option the cloud-init script in Prism GUI
Unfortunatly this does not work - the “Custom Script” cloud-init instructions are not applied during creation of the clone.
Do i possibly have to modify something inside the Ubuntu Template installation (ex. cloud-init datasource or similiar, /etc/cloud/cloud.cfg or whatever)?
Doesnt matter where i look the existing documentation (cloud-init, nutanix, ubuntu) etc. seems to be rather incomplete.
I had a working example in the past with Centos 7 deplyoment with Nutanix,cloud-init and deploying via Custom Script option in Prism element - but i cant get it running with Ubuntu
I’m aware of this article https://portal.nutanix.com/page/documents/kbs/details?targetId=kA00e000000CshJCAS - but this is not what i need - i dont want to give users who create vms access to acli - they shall work only via Prism Element GUI in my environment hence i have to do it with the clone process of a Ubuntu template as described above.
