Cloud-Config Parameters

Oct 16, 2015

When you are creating a CoreOS VM, the New VM wizard prompts you to specify cloud-config parameters for your VM. You should create a config drive if you are planning to use XenServer to manage containers running inside the VM. The config drive provides user data for the VM instance.

Note: Containers may fail to run if you do not create a config drive for the VM. For more information about containers, see Managing Containers.

By default, XenCenter includes a predefined set of parameters on the Cloud-Config Parameters page. You can modify these parameters based on your requirements. Refer to CoreOS documentation for detailed information about supported configuration parameters.

Note: You can modify the cloud-config parameters when a VM is shut down. For more information, see Cloud-Config Parameters in Change VM Properties.
