The parameter is incorrect


While running the install script for the first time you may get an error that says:
Exception calling "AddPrivileges" with "2" argument(s): "The parameter is incorrect"
At C:\Program Files\CloudInit\install.ps1:35 char:45
  • [CloudInit.LsaWrapperCaller]::AddPrivileges <<<< ($username, "SeServiceLogonRight")
    • CategoryInfo : NotSpecified: (:) [], MethodInvocationException
    • FullyQualifiedErrorId : DotNetMethodException
      Seems to happen only on the first run as the code that throws this error successfully runs the second time around. Not sure exactly what is happening. Until i get this bug fixed there are two work arounds.
  • Run the code a second time and it will successfully apply the changes
    $username = "$(hostname)\cloudinitservice"
    [System.Reflection.Assembly]::LoadFrom("<path to service>\CloudInit.exe")
    [CloudInit.LsaWrapperCaller]::AddPrivileges($username, "SeServiceLogonRight")
  • Manually give cloudinitservice LogonAsService rights with Local Security Policy Manager

There's actually a third solution here. You can comment out those lines of code in the install script and use a different user for the service, provided the said user has LogonAsService Rights.

Looks like the solution could be here. I will make an update and see if this fixes the problem.

Issue has been fixed with revision 13178. The downloads for version 1.2 have been updated to revision 13178 and now include the fix for this issue.
