Custom Images in MAAS

I’m trying to find out how it might be possible to run custom images from MAAS but I have been unable to find a method/tutorial that works. Most of them require a command to be ran after you have a ready image such as “maas massuser boot-resources create …” but when I try running these commands I get the maas help page which doesn’t even show ‘boot-resources’ as a command.
Is it possible to add custom images with the latest version of maas?
If so is there a detailed tutorial available somewhere?

Instructions are in the README for the OS

@robert-datacare, there is no tutorial yet, but this bumps it up on my list of things to get done. did you see the README for if you’re having trouble with the README, lmk, i’ll try to help.

I’ve tried folowing the instructions for making an image with packer but when i run ‘make custom-ubuntu-lvm.dd.gz’ it comes up with an error.

Make sure you have the right version of packer.

apt-add-repository “deb [arch=amd64] $(lsb_release -cs) main”
curl -fsSL | sudo apt-key add -
#remove local from /etc/apt/sources.list
apt update

Hey @robert-datacare,

Regarding the issue with getting the full commands from the CLI - the full set of commands are only visible and available when you are logged in with a valid profile (the “massuser” part)

Check out the instructions that kick off this article.
