As I tried following the guide below, I realized that RHEL’s dnf does not have a reconfigure parameter. How exactly do I setup the DigitalOcean Data source on a RHEL based distribution?

I believe the data source problem is related to Ubuntu distro. Data source list is located in file /etc/cloud/cloud.cfg.d/90_dpkg.cfg. Check if you have this file in RHEL. If it exists, you can modify it by hand to get its datasource_list like:

datasource_list: [ DigitalOcean, ConfigDrive, OpenNebula, Azure, AltCloud, OVF, MAAS, GCE, OpenStack, CloudSigma, SmartOS, Bigstep, Scaleway, AliYun, Ec2, CloudStack, Hetzner, IBMCloud, Oracle, Exoscale, RbxCloud, None ]

In my case, it was crucial to put DigitalOcean as the first item on datasource_list but it was Ubuntu 20.04.

Can you create a tutorial for RedHat?
