StackScripts: How / When do they execute ?
I am kind of new here and i have been looking into stackscripts and honestly I am pretty lost now. I looked around this forum but nothing really seems to work.
So I was initially trying to create a stackscript that would install saltstack minion. But it seems a simple script for making a directory is not working. Am i doing something wrong here ?
Here is the simplest of scripts i tried to run on Ubuntu 18 LTS:
All I see is this script pasted with executable permissions in the root directory. I can go in and execute it and it does create a test directory. Is there no way for these scripts to be executed upon the creation of the machine? I thought that was the whole idea behind stackscripts "Run once upon machine creation" ?
StackScripts are executed upon deployment of the machine automatically.
I just tested your example StackScript with a fresh Ubuntu Linode, and the "test" directory was successfully created under the root directory:
root@localhost:~# ls /
bin dev home lib32 libx32 media opt root sbin srv test usr
boot etc lib lib64 lost+found mnt proc run snap sys tmp var
What other sorts of issues are you having trouble with? Our StackScript guides may be more useful than what you're able to find in this Community Site:
