    Re: login and password vmdk

    There is a checkbox during install to include an ssh-server. Check that. That's the end of the "configuration" effort to get it working. That doesn't mean you shouldn't harden ssh a little more and prevent 99% of the world from connecting, but that can come later.

    The Server or Desktop install takes 10 minutes.

    Sorry that nobody who knows something about the way you want to use a vmdk version it has responded. This is the first thread I've ever seen about this type of release.

    I think another difference between the cloud vmdk and the version installed via iso is that the vmdk includes the cloud-init package on the assumption the hosting provider would hook into it to set up the SSH keys and other configuration.

    But in real life, that isn't a big difference unless you need to deploy a few instances with the same config. If it's a one-off, you can just do it manually.

    I've been purging the cloud-init packages from my server installs a few years.
    Code:
    $ dpkg -l 'cloud*'
    Desired=Unknown/Install/Remove/Purge/Hold
    | Status=Not/Inst/Conf-files/Unpacked/halF-conf/Half-inst/trig-aWait/Trig-pend
    |/ Err?=(none)/Reinst-required (Status,Err: uppercase=bad)
    ||/ Name           Version      Architecture Description
    +++-==============-============-============-=================================
    ii  cloud-guest-ut 0.30-0ubuntu all          cloud guest utilities
    ii  cloud-init     21.1-19-gbad all          Init scripts for cloud instances
    ii  cloud-initramf 0.40ubuntu1. all          copy initramfs modules into root 
    ii  cloud-initramf 0.40ubuntu1. all          write a network interface file in
    un  cloud-utils    <none>       <none>       (no description available)
    These were purged previously, but Canonical started forcing them through dependencies. My 2 other servers don't have them, so I don't know which dependencies force them. Regardless, they ARE in the normal Ubuntu Server ISO.

    Good catch! I checked my 18.04 box that's hosting some production stuff and I didn't see any cloud-init stuff. I haven't used any of the newer versions though.
