Ubuntu 16.04 keyboard configuration


I'm trying to install Ubuntu 16.04 over PXE but the keyboard configuration
is configured to us after the installation is finished.
Which parameter do I need to set in the host configuration to have german

Regards - Willi

Any ideas?

I believe you need to set this in a template associated with the host's
OS/hostgroup/environment. I ran across this foreman template for Ubuntu
12.04, which appears to be setting the keymap and lang to German:

Note that it is 4 years old, so the parameters may be slightly different.

Hopefully this is helpful.

Can you provide some more details how exactly you try to install Ubuntu 16.04?
Are you using a preseed file to automate the installation?

Within a preseed file you can use the following parameters to answer keyboard
related settings [1][2]:

d-i console-setup/ask_detect boolean false
d-i keyboard-configuration/layoutcode string ch

In addition you can define many different settings as kernel parameters [3].
