Bug Description

Running MAAS snap 2.7.0-8235-g.fea3a1678. This is a fresh install on an empty database.

I ran "maas init" in mode "region+rack", and specified all 3 admin options on the command line (ie --admin-{username,email,password}) and the admin user didn't get created (well at least I couldn't login with the provided credentials)

I had to run "maas createadmin" to get a usable admin user.

Thanks

So it seems this is actually always been the behavior when any mode other than "all" is selected.
I think the reason is that only "all" mode assumes the maas database is being initialized, therefore asking for additional configurations (first admin, external auth config, ...).

When running as "region" or "region+rack", the command currently doesn't know whether it's a new install or a new region is being added.

I think it should check if the database is empty (which was my case), and if so display the "first admin" questions.

One more thing, the web login page didn't tell me there was no account configured.
