Description Thom Carlin 2017-06-27 15:55:46 EDT
Description of enhancement:

Section 7.8 provides some of the steps to use cloud-init.  This RFE requests  step by step documentation on how to make the Red Hat provided KVM Guest Images (which are preconfigured as Cloud-init aware) accessible for use by RHV.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):



7.8. USING CLOUD-INIT TO AUTOMATE THE CONFIGURATION OF VIRTUAL MACHINES, https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_virtualization/4.1/html-single/virtual_machine_management_guide/#sect-Using_Cloud-Init_to_Automate_the_Configuration_of_Virtual_Machines

Additional info:

* RHEL 7.3 KVM Guest Image can currently be found on the Customer Portal at https://access.redhat.com/downloads/content/69/ver=/rhel---7/7.3/x86_64/product-software
* Currently, you must upgrade cloud-init to 0.7.9 for some functionality.  This may be done by temporarily enabling rhel-7-server-rh-common-rpms or rhel-7-server-beta-rpms repository while updating cloud-init

Can you share your thoughts on what needs to be done here?
Comment 2 Michal Skrivanek 2017-07-04 05:22:18 EDT
I believe nothing code-wise.
Just describe where to get it, how to import it into environment (upload disk, create a VM) and run with the desired cloud-init configuration

Assigning to Billy for review.

Billy, the strategy is to first get this content into 4.1, and then review whether the same steps apply to 4.2.
