Bug Description

MAAS allows users to modify the preseeds so they can customize the installation. With the snaps, users are no longer able to do so because the preseeds are not installed in the common, user editable directory.

Probably not the best time to do this but moving them into the database would be much better. As at the moment with HA you would need to modify the preseed across all region controllers.

Hello :) Do we know when this is progressing? The documentation does not explicitly mention this limitation, simply stating that "In particular, implementing high availability via snaps is not yet possible". This causes problems as we have now large deployments which we start requiring deployment of supplementary drivers for.
Best regards,
