Creating user and group with cloud-config script
Hello. I am trying to create an ubuntu instance with a cloud-config script, that creates both of user and group at once. That is, I would like to create a user X whose primary group is X, and whose secondary groups is sudo, Y.
The following is what I gave as a cloud-config script:
#cloud-config groups: - Y users: - name: X groups: [ sudo, Y ] shell: /bin/bash sudo: ['ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD:ALL'] ssh-authorized-keys: - ssh-rsa xxx...xxx runcmd: - echo "generated!!" > /home/X/test.txt
However, the group Y is not generated. Weirdly, the echo command is executed successfully. Are there any mistakes in my script?
Any guidance and pointers are welcome. Thanks in advance.
