Firstboot script support now available in BigV

We’ve now added firstboot script support to BigV!

This means you can now specify a script to be run once a virtual machine has been imaged and booted.

Firstboot script support is perfect for:

  • configuring your server environment using tools like Puppet & Ansible.
  • adding users and changing passwords.
  • deploying applications using version control.

Firstboot script support is available in the Bytemark Control Panel, the command-line client and through the API

This new feature is available immediately. We’d love to hear your feedback – do add a comment on this blog post once you’ve had a go.
