Guys, Why cloudbase init service on Windows exits with a error? Error message:

The Cloud Initialization Service service terminated unexpectedly. It has done this 1 time(s).

XML info:

- <Event xmlns="">
- <System>
  <Provider Name="Service Control Manager" Guid="{555908d1-a6d7-4695-8e1e-26931d2012f4}" EventSourceName="Service Control Manager" /> 
  <EventID Qualifiers="49152">7034</EventID> 
  <TimeCreated SystemTime="2017-10-11T15:25:03.447971800Z" /> 
  <Correlation /> 
  <Execution ProcessID="480" ThreadID="208" /> 
  <Security /> 
- <EventData>
  <Data Name="param1">Cloud Initialization Service</Data> 
  <Data Name="param2">1</Data> 

Cloudbase-init service runs on Windows Server 2016 Standart.

Thous crashed are detected by programs like reimage and shows big red signs about crashes. Thous signs are terrifying.



Error ocures everythine I restart server. In application logs errors shows like this:

The description for Event ID 0 from source cloudbase-init cannot be found. Either the component that raises this event is not installed on your local computer or the installation is corrupted. You can install or repair the component on the local computer.

If the event originated on another computer, the display information had to be saved with the event.

The following information was included with the event:

Can you provide the cloudbase-init logs to check in what environment does it happen? I could not reproduce the event log error you have received.

Thank you,

Hello @ged0. I looked at the pastebin, but it seems it does not contain the full cloudbase-init log with the exit code or message. Can you put the whole log, please? Thank you,
Adrian Vladu
