No worries. I might try a Customized or Aliyun Platform choice for the
next instance and see how that goes. Will report back if find anything
On a side note noticed this Ali image is slightly different from the AWS
one in at least one respect. That is it has a "root" user for doing
admin type things, whereas the AWS uses "clear" as a superuser.
Was thinking of adding a "clear" user to keep things consistent, though
didn't know if there any edge cases I might miss doing so.
Guessing the idea behind the "clear" admin user is better security and
foot gun protection for noobs like myself :p
