What Is the cloudbase-init Account in Windows ECSs?

In Windows ECSs, cloudbase-init is the default account of the Cloudbase-Init agent program. It is used to obtain the metadata and execute configurations when the ECS starts.

Do not modify or delete this account or uninstall the Cloudbase-Init agent program. Otherwise, injecting the customized data for initializing the ECS generated using the Windows private image created based on this ECS will fail.

NOTE:

This account is unavailable on Linux ECSs.
