cloud-init made easy PDF Print E-mail
Written by Michael Felt   

Are you ready for EASY!

There WAS a very long list of RPM packages that needed to be downloaded and installed to have an AIX virtual machine that was cloud-init enabled.

To be precise - 34 rpm packages at 255 MByte.

Compare that with with one file (a compressed tar file of installp packages) of < 47MByte (and unpacked less than 100 Mbyte)!

Steps now are:

  1. download
  2. unpack
  3. install

Installation menus

Looks like AIX install

Default language is no longer C/C/C but is now en_US and iso-8859-1 (and keyboard says undefined when I check in smit)

There options to install openssh client and server
