Bug Description

Ubuntu Kickstart no longer works in performing unattended installs of Ubuntu Server 18.04+ (Bionic) because the networking configuration fails due to the original networking parameters being based on SystemV whereas Ubuntu 18.04+ uses Netplan YAML syntax. Kickstart remains an installable package in the repos for Ubuntu Artful, Bionic, and Cosmic, however it cannot perform the desired automated installs for post-Xenial distros.

Please note: Preseeding is not an option for unattended network installations because network configuration only works for CD-ROM and USB. (Source: https://help.ubuntu.com/lts/installation-guide/arm64/apbs04.html#preseed-network)

Kickstart works with the non-GUI 18.04 installer (ubuntu-18.04.3-server-amd64.iso)

Hi Martin, the main functionality of Kickstart may work with Ubuntu 18.04, but the networking portion of Kickstart does not work at all and needs to be updated for SystemV. Please see my above bug description.

Correction: SystemD, not Init-V
