Bug Description

Just bootstrapped a Juju controller on a Vmware vsphere cloud and I got a message from cloud-init that the system identified the datasource as ec2. Hypervisor: VMware ESXi, 6.5.0, 5310538

# A new feature in cloud-init identified possible datasources for #
# this system as: #
# ['Ec2', 'None'] #
# However, the datasource used was: OVF #
# #
# In the future, cloud-init will only attempt to use datasources that #
# are identified or specifically configured. #
# For more information see #
# #
# #
# If you are seeing this message, please file a bug against #
# cloud-init at #
# #
# Make sure to include the cloud provider your instance is #
# running on. #
# #
# After you have filed a bug, you can disable this warning by launching #
# your instance with the cloud-config below, or putting that content #
# into /etc/cloud/cloud.cfg.d/99-warnings.cfg #
# #
# #cloud-config #
# warnings: #
# dsid_missing_source: off #

Hi Merlijn

I added the cloud-init project on here, and we will target cloud-init 17.2 for this fix.

Just so you know, this is currently a *warning* and your system should be usable even with this warning message displaying when you log in. If you find that it's blocking you (other than being annoying), please do comment back.

Thanks for reporting this and helping to make Ubuntu better!
