MAAS 2.6.2 ignored my /etc/maas/preseeds/enlist_userdata

Hi guys!

I have problem after upgrade to 2.6.2 MAAS.

We have MAAS cluster of 2 VMs, which have one region and one rack on each.
After upgrade to 2.6.2 version we have troubles with running enlist_userdata scripts. Earlier we use it to determine server hostname and discover it on MAAS by right hostname from Jira API.

Now, when enlisting new machine, we watching to logs and can’t find any tracks of running enlist_userdata. No effect.

3 quessions:

  1. why it can happen?
  2. what’s way to debug enlist_userdata running?
  3. how disable poweoff after enlist finish?

Hi @kingil ,

same here did you find any solution.

Thanks in advance,

I also hit this problem. From source code it seems that enlist_userdata functionality has been removed from MaaS 2.5:frowning:
You can check it for yourself by comparing the code:

This function, which used to handle enlist_userdata template, is no longer present in MaaS 2.5:
def get_enlist_userdata(rack_controller=None, default_region_ip=None):

Relevant commit:

Run commissioning during enlistment.

The commissioning userdata template has been updated to enlist machines when
run during enlistment. /etc/maas/preseeds/enlist_userdata has been removed.

Unfortunately MaaS documentation does not track this important change and still describes enlist_userdata:

Solution: from MaaS 2.5 upwards instead of customising “/etc/maas/preseeds/enlist_userdata”, one should customise “/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/metadataserver/user_data/templates/enlistment.template”. At least it worked for me.
Anyone has a better solution?
