Re: Disable set-passwords in cfg.d


Thanks Alberto and Dermot for your reply.

Re shadow, that is my main worry as well.
I didn't want to touch cloud.cfg so not to mess future updates and was hoping for an easy way out, maybe a cfg.d file with:
- !set-passwords

This is not for security btw, the module is misbehaving in certain situations (cloudstack + bsd guest) and needs taking over with custom scripting.

One downside of this approach worth to mention is that it shadows the
original cloud_config_modules section in cloud.cfg and if that section
gets modified in a new cloud-init version / cloud image then it is
going to be ignored.
