An update that has three recommended fixes can now be installed.


This update for cloud-init fixes the following issues:

  • Properly handle static routes. The EphemeralDHCP context manager did not parse or handle rfc3442 classless static routes which prevented reading datasource metadata in some clouds (bsc#1141969)
  • Fixes an issue where udevadm settle was executed incorrectly (bsc#1144363)
  • If no routes are set for a subnet but the subnet has a gateway specified, set the gateway as the default route for the interface (bsc#1144881)
