2015-08-27 00:07:56 +0200 asked a question cloudbase-ini fails intermittently configuring DNS on network adapter

We are seeing intermittent failures with a Windows 2012 R2 image deployed on VMware. The error is in cloud-init not being able to configure DNS on the network adapter. We suspect a timing issue where the adapter is not always ready for configuration when attempted. Has anyone else observed this behavior? The cloud-init log looks like this:
