Re: Cloud-init not installing rpms (CentOS 6.5)


U should be able to put it in /etc/cloud/cloud.cfg.d/

http://cloudinit.readthedocs.org/en/latest/topics/merging.html should help u with this I think.

Let us know if all things go fine :)

Yup, I think I see it.

U are wanting git to be installed via the packages module, except the
cloud.cfg u have (or the one that is provided by default) doesn't
include the package installation module.


- package-update-upgrade-install

I don't see this module in your cloud.cfg file (so that would likely
be why its not getting installed).

U can try adding it (by either replacing the cloud_config_modules:
with a new modified section) and see if it happens then.

Thanks Josh, that's Excellent!

This indeed seems to be the root cause of the problem.

To test, added " - package-update-upgrade-install" to the
"cloud_config_modules section of /etc/cloud/cloud.cfg, then

   # service cloud-config start

Voila, yum immediately installed git. :)

Now to experiment a bit... Ideally, there will be a way to
inject this option somewhere in the filesystem so cloud-init
sees it.  Maybe under /etc/cloud/cloud.cfg.d/.  Will find
out. :)

If there not, then I guess asking Rackspace to include this
option in their builds will be needed.  Worth a shot if the
above fails.

Thank you very much for the assist Josh. :)

Regards and best wishes,
