I'd like to propose a feature we've been doing some investigation into,
which is to integrate cloud-init support into oVirt.
Cloud-init is used to help provision new Linux systems by setting the
hostname, ip, ssh keys, timezone, injecting files, and more. It's used
by OpenStack (amongst others) now, and has a lot of features that may be
helpful to our users.
Details are still evolving, but for more info please see the wiki page:
All feedback is welcome!
a few questions:
- are you planning to save the info in the db by field, or as a single
"blob"? maybe a better questions is are you going to persist it at
- i'd be careful before passing any passwords (page mentions root
password) - you'd need to not persist it unecrypted, identify it and
clean it from all logs, etc.
- hostname - should just assume the vm name?
- timezone - is that different than the windows one? for a windows
guest as well?
