Info + objective:
I’m using MAAS to deploy workstations with Ubuntu.
MAAS just deploys the machine with stock Ubuntu, and I then run a bash script I wrote to set up everything needed.
So far, I’ve ran that bash script manually on the newly deployed machines. Now, I’m trying to have MAAS run that script automatically.
What I did + error:
In the MAAS machine, I create the following file curtin file called
/var/snap/maas/current/preseeds/curtin_userdata_ubuntu which contains the following:
write_files: bash_script: path: /root/script.sh content: | #!/bin/bash echo blabla ... very long bash script permissions: '0755' late_commands: run_script: ["/bin/bash /root/script.sh"]
However, in the log, I see the following:
known-caiman cloud-init: Command: ['/bin/bash /root/script.sh'] known-caiman cloud-init: Exit code: - known-caiman cloud-init: Reason: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/bin/bash /root/script.sh': '/bin/bash /root/script.sh'
I’m not sure putting such a large bash script in the curtin file is a good idea. Is there a way to store the bash script on the MAAS machine, and have curtin upload it to the server, and then execute it? If not, Is it possible to fix the error I’m having?
