Cloud-init options

Cloud-init VMs must be cloned from a cloud-init ready template. See: https://pve.proxmox.com/wiki/Cloud-Init_Support

  • ciuser - User name to change ssh keys and password for instead of the image’s configured default user.
  • cipassword - Password to assign the user.
  • searchdomain - Sets DNS search domains for a container.
  • nameserver - Sets DNS server IP address for a container.
  • sshkeys - public ssh keys, one per line
  • ipconfig0 - [gw=] [,gw6=] [,ip=<IPv4Format/CIDR>] [,ip6=<IPv6Format/CIDR>]
  • ipconfig1 - optional, same as ipconfig0 format

ISO requirements (non cloud-init)

Kickstart auto install

  • partition /dev/vda
  • network eth1
  • sshd (with preshared key/password)

Network is temprorarily eth1 during the pre-provision phase.
