We been trying to modify the cloud-init configuration for Portal EE 4.0 to assign a static IP on first boot. Each attempt that has been successful in updating the IP address has resulted in blocking the remaining cloud-init scripts and, as a result, does not create any users. Is there a way to configure a static IP that doesn't break the cloud-init config? Below is a sample config of what is placed in the meta-data. Looks like version Cloud-init 0.7.5 is in use here. The internet has similar stories regarding Ubuntu and upstart, but don't seem to apply 1 to 1 to this Centos 7.2 image. Any thoughts or assistance would be appreciated.
