Automating server and installation

Hi people,

I’m trying to develop automated Ubuntu installation to speedup machine deployment (both desktops and servers).

I’ve found two different manuals on how to create automated installs - this and this. They use different methods to accomplish the task - d-i preseeding and cloud-init autoinstall. Which one is the preferred/recommended way? Are they complimentary systems?

Don’t want to waste time developing something that should be replaced soon.


autoinstall is the new one. It works in 20.04 and up.

Thank you, Michael. Will look into it, then.
