As a first, please install Cloudbase-Init using the installer and then tweak the configuration files to match your requirements.

On the configuration you have, it is mandatory to set the following for the cloudbase-init.conf:

It is mandatory that you have in the cloudbase-init-unattend.conf:

Thank you,

@avladu, this didn't worked. After further studying logs I have noticed that there is no request to get hostname. For example: http://X.X.X.X/latest/meta-data/local-hostname Why not? How I can debug it?

from the logs it says that: Plugin 'SetHostNamePlugin' execution already done. The hostname plugin has been executed at the first boot and cloudbase-init keeps record of the plugins that it needs to execute only once (like the hostname change). You can remove that state from the registry.

The registry path where cloudbase-init keeps the state is HKLM:\SOFTWARE\\Cloudbase Solutions\\Cloudbase-Init\\

@avladu Thank you for Registry info. My host name sets only when I delete all keys under HKLM:\SOFTWARE\\Cloudbase Solutions\\Cloudbase-Init\ branch. After restart new UUID branch don't create and if there is some old branch host name set plugin marks as executed...
