Granted. But the example in python
http://www.ovirt.org/Features/Cloud-Init_Integration uses custom script :)
I just want to know how to do the same thing in case when I want to write
more than one file to a VM - and yes - all those multiple files that I
want to write are specified via custom scripts.
>From the link - (The "Python SDK" paragraph: scontent object holds the
scontent = "write_files:\n- content: |\n search
example.com\n nameserver 10.10.10.1\n nameserver
10.10.10.2\n path: /etc/resolv.conf"
For example (and just for example), I want to write to /etc/issue and
/etc/hosts not only /etc/resolv.conf. In essence, when vm goes to run-once
mode I want to write more than one file to a vm via Python (using
CloudInit) in automated fashion (and not touching oVirt GUI at all).
Thanks in advance!
