Cloud-init allows for easy initialization of virtualization and cloud instances. Address Manager and DNS/DHCP Server ESX virtual machines support provisioning of IP address information using cloud-init configuration data in valid YAML syntax. In addition to the IP address information, you can provision DNS/DHCP Servers with server services, such as Anycast or SNMP, using cloud-init configuration data.
- Cloud-init provisioning is only supported on standalone ESX virtual machines; BAM in replication or BDDS xHA not supported.
