I am installing cloudbase-init using automation on a windows2016 image. While the whole process seems working all right, I just noticed the VM created out of the base image got the cloudba-se-init service in automatic and stopped. I also noticed the VM reboots once before it gets ready for use. (Note: as the final step for the image creation is to start the cloubase-init service)

This is what I have found in the event viewer:

</eventdata> </event>

Any idea? I am failing to find a workaround on this and I would need some suggestions.

Many thanks

I am currently running different sorts of installations. I have manually started the cloudbase-init service but after awhile it just dies and I see the event above. A bit on the lost right now .

Here is an automation tool that you can use to generate Windows images:

The tool encapsulates cloudbase-init installation step.

Thank you, Adrian Vladu
