Documentation

cloud-init seed creation tool

cloud-init-seed is a command line tool to create seed images which can be used together with cloud-init. This is eg. useful when using Cloud images (which contain cloud-init) together with libvirt (which does not have a metadata server which is usually used together with cloud-init).

Note

cloud-init in the image must have the nocloud datasource enabled.

Requirements and installation

  • mkisofs or genisoimage (zypper in mkisofs for openSUSE or apt install genisoimage for Debian)
  • when using virtual envs, just install via pip pip3 install cloud-init-seed

Usage

Create a seed image:

cloud-init-seed create

Now the seed.img file can be attached to a libvirt instance as a CDROM drive.
