Cloudbase-Init (like cloud-init) is an agent (an executable in its primary form) that configures an OS instance (Windows/Linux or Unix) at first boot using metadata (information) provided by the platform that created that instance (example: OpenStack, Azure, AWS).

In your case, Proxmox (after all I know) is just a VM lifecycle manager and does not provide the metadata in any form (config-drive or http). The easiest method to provide metadata is to attach at boot time an ISO with the relevant metadata structure and format. Example of metadata folder structure and content here (in order to create a metadata ISO): .

Can you elaborate on what you are trying to achieve in your case? Most likely, there are multiple ways to resolve your initial issue.

Thank you,
