Description Daniel Berrange 2013-07-05 09:48:38 EDT
Description of problem:
Fedora (and many other distros) provide pre-built cloud images. These typically have no default password set, requiring the cloud-init service to pull a password and/or ssh public key off the host metadata service, or config-drive disk.

It would be desirable to use the pre-built cloud images in non-cloud world, using virt-manager and/or virt-install --import.

Without a way to populate the login password/ssh keys, this isn't practical

It would be desirable if virt-install have a way to specify arbitrary key,value pairs to populate the metadata source. It could then auto-generate a disk image to act as a config drive thus:

Moving to the upstream tracker
Comment 3 Dusty Mabe 2014-09-24 09:51:22 EDT
Dan,

Would it be a good first step if virt-install/virt-manager had the ability to accept a file or directory to use and build a resulting iso image and attach it to the guest on install/import?

Key/Value pair could come later.
