I’ve spent the last few nights fiddling with this and thought I’d share it in case someone else needs it.
Basically, I want to use nixos in our proxmox cluster. We’re used to provisioning VMs with terraform and cloudinit, but proxmox makes it a little difficult to use the cloudinit runcmd tthat’s the obvious path for nixos-infect.
Besides that, I don’t know when to stop, so I thought “Why even use the debian cloudinit vm, that seems like unnecessary extra steps” - so I built a nixos cloudinit VM.
A lot of the modules don’t make a whole lot of sense, so I removed them. The only thing we’re really doing is adding ssh keys to the predefined user and setting a static IP and gateway, so most other parts are disabled.
You’d push a nixos config that doesn’t have cloudinit on it anyways I guess.
The flake is under a hundred lines
It’s somewhat opinionated though, so read through it before using it, but if you’re in this deep I assume you’d do that anyways.
