I am trying to set up an MAAS cluster, but am having some issues adding nodes. The nodes boot up from the TFTP server on the master server, display a login screen (with the hostname "maas-enlisting-node") and stop.

I cannot log in with ubuntu/ubuntu or with my SSH keys. The MAAS server is running DHCP and DNS on the network, and the TFTP boot appears to be loading everything without issues (I can screencap if you want)

Any ideas what's going wrong?



What you are describing is expected behavior. Once a machine enters into the maas-enlisting-mode, cloud-init will run certain code and will enlist the machine in MAAS. These may take a few minutes provided on how fast it can retrieve the packages from the Internet and install them. Once this finishes, the machines will power off by themselves and they will be available in the MAAS WebUI.
