Another option is to make customized guest images that are preconfigured as you like them.

In a previous role, I had to maintain all linux distro guest images for use inside a corporate cloud deploy. This included pointing ntpd to corp IT ntp servers for compliance.

I did this by creating a custom element for diskimage-builder, and we would periodically update the images.
