  • I had the same problem. It just happened when I rebooted the server. The login prompt is dead and the ssh connection timed out. I can only ping the server IP address. All suggestions of how to disable or uninstall Cloud-Init do not help as I cannot get in the box. Any special key combination to prevent the Cloud-Init from blocking the login?

The solution that worked with me, as shown here, just create an empty file, type :

sudo touch /etc/cloud/cloud-init.disabled

I had a similar problem with Ubuntu Server 20.04.2 on a Hyper-V machine. Jeff's answer almost worked for me. This post suggests creating the directory

/etc/systemd/system/[email protected]/

instead of

/etc/systemd/system/[email protected]/

The rest is identical. Create a .conf file inside this directory, add the contents

[Unit]

After=cloud-init.target

to it and reboot. That should do the trick.

You can configure [email protected] to wait until cloud-init.target has finished. Same concept as this answer, but waiting for network.target didn't work for me with the cloud-init messages.

mkdir /etc/systemd/system/[email protected]/
nano /etc/systemd/system/[email protected]/cloud-init_wait.conf #anything ending in .conf

[Unit]

After=cloud-init.target

  • This doesn't seem to work for me, is there anything else you need to do after creating the file? Apr 25, 2020 at 22:49
