CloudForms/ManageIQ and RHEV both support CloudInit.
In CloudForms the configuration is hidden in Infrastructure, PXE. Navigate to “Customization Templates” on the left hand accordion and create a new template (I used the folder “RHEL-6” for my testing). When creating the temlate select “CloudInit” in the “Type” drop down list.
Now you can add your raw CloudInit configuration into the text area.
Note: Your script has to start with this first line:
Otherwise you’ll get a parsing error during boot of your new VMs or instances.
A complete example could looke like this:
#cloud-config users: - default - name: foobar2 gecos: Foo B. Bar groups: users plain_text_passwd: 'foobar' - name: root chpasswd: list: | root:password expire: False # end of example
