Password with '&' in it fails

If you set a password through Horizon, utlising cloud-init for Windows and config-drive with a password that contains a '&' in it, then password fails.

For example: Pa55w0rd!& fails to be set, in fact, the '&' character is stripped out. I can log in with a password of Pa55w0rd!.

If the '&' is in the middle of the password and the first half doesn't comply with Windows' password policy then the password is not set.

Has anyone else had this issue?

This issue has been just fixed and the Cloudbase-Init installer has been updated. Please let us know if it works for you.

Hello, There is a problem with the string escaping when setting the user password. I have opened a bug on launchpad(here) and I'll come back with a bug fix asap.

Thanks for the notice.
