currently the workflow for windows-openstack-imaging-tools does an automated cloudbase-init deployment in Logon.ps1 by issuing the following command:

$p = Start-Process -Wait -PassThru -FilePath msiexec -ArgumentList "/i $CloudbaseInitMsiPath /qn /l*v $CloudbaseInitMsiLog LOGGINGSERIALPORTNAME=$serialPortName"

I've been able to modify the command slightly to use the built-in Administrator account by adding USERNAME property to the command which is great, however, I'm struggling to find an option to add activate_windows=true to the cloudbase-init config files in an automated fashion.

What would be your suggestion for doing this?

This can be achieved by manually or automatically adding the entry to the cloudbase-init.conf file. Here is the workflow we are using to install cloudbase-init in the image:

You can also use the ini.psm1 powershell module to add the desired configuration values to the configuration file:

Thank you,
