During the 17.04 development cycle, the Ubuntu Foundations team has been
a new experimental installer for servers. We are now ready to get
feedback from a wider audience.
A 17.04 technical preview image for Ubuntu Server using the new
is available here:
We'd love to get your feedback on it!
It can be used as an ISO image when booting a virtual machine, or
burnt to CD/written to a USB key to test on actual hardware, just as you
would the official server ISO image;
for more information.
While the installer experience is all new and covers only a subset of
the use cases
supported by the standard server image, once installed you should find
Ubuntu Server environment that you know and love. If you notice any
please send us bug reports at
Finally, there are some known issues we're working on already:
- The proposed updates are enabled on the installed system, which is
for a production system. This can be fixed by removing the file
- There are no login prompts on virtual terminals other than VT1
(which means you can't
hit Ctrl-alt-F2 to switch to a shell).
I'll take this moment to thank Michael Hudson-Doyle, who has done a huge
work on getting this ready, as well as Ryan Harper and Adam Stokes who
drove early development
