This datasource finds metadata and user-data from the CloudSigma cloud platform. Data transfer occurs through a virtual serial port of the CloudSigma‘s VM and the presence of network adapter is NOT a requirement, See server context in the public documentation for more information.
Setting a hostname¶
By default the name of the server will be applied as a hostname on the first boot.
You can provide user-data to the VM using the dedicated meta field in the
cloudinit-user-data. By default cloud-config format is
expected there and the
#cloud-config header could be omitted. However
since this is a raw-text field you could provide any of the valid config
You have the option to encode your user-data using Base64. In order to do that
you have to add the
cloudinit-user-data field to the
The latter is a comma-separated field with all the meta fields whit base64
If your user-data does not need an internet connection you can create a meta
field in the server context
cloudinit-dsmode and set “local” as
value. If this field does not exist the default value is “net”.
