Subject user-data/meta-data
Date Fri, 11 Mar 2016 13:39:15 GMT
Hi to all,

I am testing cloud-init right now and run into a limitation of CS with the provided user-data/meta-data.

As far as docu goes (
CS is providing the following meta-data:
service-offering, availability-zone, local-ipv4, local-hostname, public-ipv4, public-hostname,

Actually it is providing more:
vm-id (looks like an alias to instance-id), public-keys, cloud-identifier

To get cloud-init to recreate /etc/hosts correctly one more parameter is needed.
cloud-init needs to get the fqdn of the vm via meta-data. The name of the parameter is "hostname",
which is providing the fqdn of the vm.,
Line 441 to 445

Does anybody plan to integrate this into CS?

Mit freundlichen Grüßen / With kind regards,
