This test requires access to a cloud provider (EC2, OpenStack, etc)

How to test

For EC2

  1. Boot the latest AMI
  2. Select defaults (key-pair, etc)
  3. From the EC2 Dashboard, select your instance
  4. Click "Actions" and then select "Get System Log"

Expected Results

  1. Log data should appear in the console output
  2. Networking information should be displayed
  3. ssh hostkey fingerprints should be visible
  4. One of the final lines should say that Cloud-init finished.


This output can also be checked in /var/log/cloud-init.log on the instance itself.
