cloud-agent for OpenBSD

This is a simple OpenBSD-specific agent that aims to handle provisioning and cloud initialization on public clouds such as Microsoft Azure and Amazon AWS. For OpenBSD on Azure, it is a minimal alternative to the WALinuxAgent.


  • OpenBSD 6.1 or higher, nothing else.


  • /usr/local/libexec/cloud-agent
  • /usr/local/bin/cms

The CMS binary is a port of OpenSSL's CMS tool to LibreSSL. LibreSSL has removed CMS which is required by Azure.


See the cloud-agent(8) documentation for more information about the usage.

Basic installation is easy, cloud-agent detects the cloud type automatically.

  • On Microsoft Azure, create a file /etc/hostname.hvn0

  • On Amazon AWS, create a file /etc/hostname.xnf0

  • On CloudStack, such as Exoscale, create a file /etc/hostname.vio0

  • On OpenBSD VMM (with meta-data), create a file /etc/hostname.vio0

  • On OpenStack/VMware, create a file /etc/hostname.vmx0

  • The content of the file is identical for all of the above:

      !/usr/local/libexec/cloud-agent "\$if"
  • On OpenNebula, such as Data Center Light, create a file /etc/hostname.if where if is the name of your primary interface. The dhcp line should be ommitted in the file:

      !/usr/local/libexec/cloud-agent "\$if"
