Description of problem:
Currently, aeolus-audrey-agent requires /etc/sysconfig/cloud-info to exist in order to execute. The contents of the file must be one of the following:

For RHEVm:

For EC2

For vSphere

This file is created by imagefactory. If, however, the image is not created by imagefactory (for example, in the case of importing an existing image) then the installed audrey agent fails to execute and produced the following error message.

"failed accessing file /etc/sysconfig/cloud-info, retrying in X seconds ..."

This is a RFE to not require the cloud-info file or create it upon installation of aeolus-audrey-agent package. Without this functionality it will require those working in brown field environments who wish to import images to take extra measures before importing the images instead of just installing the aeolus-audrey-agent package and importing.
Comment 2 Joe Vlcek 2013-01-04 08:03:23 EST
If an image is built using image factory the /etc/sysconfig/cloud-info
file will exist.

If an image is manually modified to include the Audrey Agent then
the /etc/sysconfig/cloud-info file must also be manually added in
the correct format.

Marking will not fix.
