# Add groups to the system
# The following example adds the ubuntu group with members foo and bar and
# the group cloud-users.
groups:
  - ubuntu: [foo,bar]
  - cloud-users

# Add users to the system. Users are added after groups are added.
users:
  - default
  - name: foobar
    gecos: Foo B. Bar
    primary-group: foobar
    groups: users
    selinux-user: staff_u
    expiredate: 2012-09-01
    ssh-import-id: foobar
    lock-passwd: false
    passwd: $6$j212wezy$7H/1LT4f9/N3wpgNunhsIqtMj62OKiS3nyNwuizouQc3u7MbYCarYeAHWYPYb2FT.lbioDm2RrkJPb9BZMN1O/
  - name: barfoo
    gecos: Bar B. Foo
    sudo: ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD:ALL
    groups: users, admin
    ssh-import-id: None
    lock-passwd: true
    ssh-authorized-keys:
      - <ssh pub key 1>
      - <ssh pub key 2>
  - name: cloudy
    gecos: Magic Cloud App Daemon User
    inactive: true
    system: true

# Valid Values:
#   name: The user's login name
#   gecos: The user name's real name, i.e. "Bob B. Smith"
#   homedir: Optional. Set to the local path you want to use. Defaults to
#           /home/<username>
#   primary-group: define the primary group. Defaults to a new group created
#           named after the user.
#   groups:  Optional. Additional groups to add the user to. Defaults to none
#   selinux-user:  Optional. The SELinux user for the user's login, such as
#           "staff_u". When this is omitted the system will select the default
#           SELinux user.
#   lock-passwd: Defaults to true. Lock the password to disable password login
#   inactive: Create the user as inactive
#   passwd: The hash -- not the password itself -- of the password you want
#           to use for this user. You can generate a safe hash via:
#               mkpasswd --method=SHA-512 --rounds=4096
#           (the above command would create from stdin an SHA-512 password hash
#           with 4096 salt rounds)
#
#           Please note: while the use of a hashed password is better than
#               plain text, the use of this feature is not ideal. Also,
#               using a high number of salting rounds will help, but it should
#               not be relied upon.
#
#               To highlight this risk, running John the Ripper against the
#               example hash above, with a readily available wordlist, revealed
#               the true password in 12 seconds on a i7-2620QM.
#
#               In other words, this feature is a potential security risk and is
#               provided for your convenience only. If you do not fully trust the
#               medium over which your cloud-config will be transmitted, then you
#               should use SSH authentication only.
#
#               You have thus been warned.
#   no-create-home: When set to true, do not create home directory.
#   no-user-group: When set to true, do not create a group named after the user.
#   no-log-init: When set to true, do not initialize lastlog and faillog database.
#   ssh-import-id: Optional. Import SSH ids
#   ssh-authorized-keys: Optional. [list] Add keys to user's authorized keys file
#   sudo: Defaults to none. Set to the sudo string you want to use, i.e.
#           ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD:ALL. To add multiple rules, use the following
#           format.
#               sudo:
#                   - ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD:/bin/mysql
#                   - ALL=(ALL) ALL
#           Note: Please double check your syntax and make sure it is valid.
#               cloud-init does not parse/check the syntax of the sudo
#               directive.
#   system: Create the user as a system user. This means no home directory.
#

# Default user creation:
#
# Unless you define users, you will get a 'ubuntu' user on ubuntu systems with the
# legacy permission (no password sudo, locked user, etc). If however, you want
# to have the 'ubuntu' user in addition to other users, you need to instruct
# cloud-init that you also want the default user. To do this use the following
# syntax:
#    users:
#      - default
#      - bob
#      - ....
#  foobar: ...
#
# users[0] (the first user in users) overrides the user directive.
#
# The 'default' user above references the distro's config:
# system_info:
#   default_user:
#    name: Ubuntu
#    plain_text_passwd: 'ubuntu'
#    home: /home/ubuntu
#    shell: /bin/bash
#    lock_passwd: True
#    gecos: Ubuntu
#    groups: [adm, audio, cdrom, dialout, floppy, video, plugdev, dip, netdev]

Configure an instances resolv.conf

Note: when using a config drive and a RHEL like system resolv.conf will also be managed ‘automatically’ due to the available information provided for dns servers in the config drive network format. For those that wish to have different settings use this module.

#cloud-config

# boot commands
# default: none
# this is very similar to runcmd, but commands run very early
# in the boot process, only slightly after a 'boothook' would run.
# bootcmd should really only be used for things that could not be
# done later in the boot process.  bootcmd is very much like
# boothook, but possibly with more friendly.
#  * bootcmd will run on every boot
#  * the INSTANCE_ID variable will be set to the current instance id.
#  * you can use 'cloud-init-boot-per' command to help only run once
bootcmd:
 - echo 192.168.1.130 us.archive.ubuntu.com > /etc/hosts
 - [ cloud-init-per, once, mymkfs, mkfs, /dev/vdb ]

#cloud-config

# run commands
# default: none
# runcmd contains a list of either lists or a string
# each item will be executed in order at rc.local like level with
# output to the console
# - if the item is a list, the items will be properly executed as if
#   passed to execve(3) (with the first arg as the command).
# - if the item is a string, it will be simply written to the file and
#   will be interpreted by 'sh'
#
# Note, that the list has to be proper yaml, so you have to escape
# any characters yaml would eat (':' can be problematic)
runcmd:
 - [ ls, -l, / ]

# default:
# mounts:
#  - [ ephemeral0, /mnt ]

#
# in order to remove a previously listed mount (ie, one from defaults)
# list only the fs_spec.  For example, to override the default, of

#
# - if a device does not exist at the time, an entry will still be
#   written to /etc/fstab.
# - '/dev' can be ommitted for device names that begin with: xvd, sd, hd, vd
# - if an entry does not have all 6 fields, they will be filled in

# Note, that you should set 'nobootwait' (see man fstab) for volumes that may
# not be attached at instance boot (or reboot)

## poweroff or reboot system after finished
# default: none
#
# power_state can be used to make the system shutdown, reboot or
# halt after boot is finished.  This same thing can be acheived by
# user-data scripts or by runcmd by simply invoking 'shutdown'.
# 
# Doing it this way ensures that cloud-init is entirely finished with
# modules that would be executed, and avoids any error/log messages
# that may go to the console as a result of system services like
# syslog being taken down while cloud-init is running.
#
# If you delay '+5' (5 minutes) and have a timeout of
# 120 (2 minutes), then the max time until shutdown will be 7 minutes.
# cloud-init will invoke 'shutdown +5' after the process finishes, or
# when 'timeout' seconds have elapsed.
#
# delay: form accepted by shutdown.  default is 'now'. other format
#        accepted is +m (m in minutes)
# mode: required. must be one of 'poweroff', 'halt', 'reboot'
# message: provided as the message argument to 'shutdown'. default is none.
# timeout: the amount of time to give the cloud-init process to finish
#          before executing shutdown.
