** Description changed: + [Impact] + + * resolved does not start early enough in the boot-process preventing + DNS resolution to be operational during early boot, for example as + required by special early stages of cloud-init, resulting in failure to + boot / provision the instance fully. + + [Test Case] + + * Boot container or a VM with a nocloud-net data source, and a URL pointing to the datasource as explained below + * Observe that boot completes and provisioning is successful + * Check that there are no dns-resolution errors in the cloud-init log / boot log + + [Regression Potential] + + * starting resolved earlier may prevent it from connecting to dbus, and + may require a restart later on when re-triggered over dbus. This is on + artful only, as in bionic resolved has gained ability to reconnected to + dbus post-start. Backporting that, however, is too large for an SRU as + it requires sd-bus changes. + + [Other Info] + + * Original bug report. + I use no-cloud to test the kernel in CI (I am maintainer of the bcache subsystem), and have been running it successfully under 16.04 cloud images from qemu, using a qemu command that includes: -smbios "type=1,serial=ds=nocloud- net;s=https://raw.githubusercontent.com/mlyle/mlyle/master/cloud- metadata/linuxtst/" As documented here: http://cloudinit.readthedocs.io/en/latest/topics/datasources/nocloud.html Under the new 17.10 cloud images, this doesn't work: the network comes up, but name resolution doesn't work-- /etc/resolv.conf is a symlink to a nonexistent file at this point of the boot and systemd-resolved is not running. When I manually hack /etc/resolv.conf in the cloud image to point to 188.8.131.52 it works fine. I don't know if nameservice not working is by design, but it seems like it should work. The documentation states: "With ds=nocloud-net, the seedfrom value must start with http://, https:// or ftp://" And https is not going to work for a raw IP address.
