[Merge] lp:~bbaude/cloud-init/azure_dhcp into lp:cloud-init
The proposal to merge lp:~bbaude/cloud-init/azure_dhcp into lp:cloud-init has been updated.
Commit Message changed to:
Get Azure endpoint server from DHCP client
It is more efficient and cross-distribution safe to use the hooks function from dhclient to obtain the Azure endpoint server (DHCP option 245). This is done by having a small bash script that is called when dhclient is nearly done. The script logs all the known dhcp options it received. For native networking, the script goes in /etc/dhcp/dhclient-exit-hooks.d and for NetworkManager it goes in /etc/NetworkManager/dispatcher.d. These small scripts call a singular bash script that actually writes the output to /run/cloud-init/dhcpoptions.
This output file from the script is in JSON format.
The azure helper then pulls the value from /run/cloud-init/dhcpoptions. If that file does not exist or the value is not present, it will then fall back to the original method of scraping the dhcp client lease file.
