Re: manual launch of cloud-init

Wouldn't a better solution be to contribute to cloud-init for OpenNebula support?

what is the way to manually launch cloud-init with a config file.

For debian-buid-cloud, we can install cloud-init. However, for OpenNebula it won't be able to gather user_data from a remote site (context is mounted via a virtual cdrom).Or for a VirtualBox image, there is no EC2 data.

So I 'd like to create a cloudinit plugin for debian-build-image that takes a cloudinit config file as input, copy it on the image and execute cloudinit on this config file at first boot.
It would help to use all cloudinit scripts to create user/groups, setup some mounts etc.... instead of recoding them all...  :-)
