I have written a powershell script that runs with the LocalScripts plugin. It's using the #ps1sysnativ lin and most of the code runs as expected. However anything that calls wmi like (gwmi win32operatingsystem).OperatingSystemSKU fails with a generic error. Has anybody ran into this?

powershell transcript of the code failing.

Thanks, Blake

From further investigation is seems the point in the sysprep process that cloudbase-init runs user scripts is to early. WMI is not available. I have attempted to use the exit codes to have the script re-run later but didn't help. Now I'm looking at using setupcomplete.cmd instead.

make sure you add the localscripts plugin execution to the non-unattend cloudbase-init configuration file, as the first cloudbase-init run is started by setupcomplete.cmd .

I have moved the localScripts plugin execution to the non sysprep executed cloudbase-init run with some success. Looking like some plugins need to run in each pass.

Could you please provide the cloudbase-init log regarding this problem?
