On Windows 10, the VM reboots after the host name gets set. On the subsequent boot I want to run a powershell script (to join domain). My question is how do I specify that the script is to only run after the VM reboots?

Cloudbase-Init has actions performed at various stages (called plugins). The one that sets the hostname (and needs a reboot because that's what Windows requires unfortunately) comes before the userdata or the localscripts ones.

If you are using OpenStack, I would recommend to pass a userdata PowerShell script that joins the domain, e.g. using djoin.exe:

& djoin.exe /requestODJ /loadfile <blob_txt_file> /windowspath $ENV:SystemRoot /localos
