Anybody here have experience with hacking the debian/ubuntu installer, or creating custom Ubuntu 18.04 installs?

I should say this is for Ubuntu Server. Particularly the Debian Server installer variant.

I have questions regarding how the hostname domain and/or FQDN are set by the installer.

@SplitShockVirus bro just configure your system once and replicate it through imaging

@benis It's not that simple we have unique configurations per location, not all hardware is the same in every location.

@benis not all hard ware is the same in the same location 😎🔫

I make a Debian preseed preseed per specific drive configuration (Per number of drives, encrypted/unecrypted Sata/NVME).

But that doesn't matter because the hostname is still wrong during install.
