3.9. Enabled Services

When you configure the custom image, the services enabled are the defaults services for the RHEL8 release you are running osbuild-composer from, additionally the services enabled for specific image types.

For example, the .ami image type enables the services sshd, chronyd and cloud-init and without these services, the custom image does not boot.
