I downloaded a Debian/stretch image from linuxcontainers.
Writing a python script based on pylxd, I could install packages, setup a user account, etc. No problem there - it’s enough to do the job I need done.
BUT … then I noticed Debian supports a package
cloud-init and decided to give it try. Version 0.7.9. I installed it and that installation doesn’t include the various templates and other files described by @stgraber in this lxd documentation on cloud-init. I setup the config data for
init-cloud anyway and tried it. Of course because there are no templates nothing was found for
NoCloud and so it didn’t work.
My question is if there are any working examples of init-cloud setups for Debian/Stretch.
