- In case of Linode CLI, while creating a linode you have to enter the root password so you can't achieve full automation. Also I was not able to find an option to add private ip to the linode
- In case of Linode API python binding you can't straight away create a running linode machine.
from linode import Linode
You just need to have a property file,/data/linode/linode.properties:
KERNEL_LABEL=Latest 64 bit
