Hi,

I am hitting an issue when launching Windows 2012R2 images on OpenStack Stein using Terraform. I initially thought though issue was with my image but I have used the "eval" image from Cloudbase and the results are the same. Cloud-init is working fine and all the standard provisioning seems to work but when I try execute multipart userdata that consists of 2 shell scripts fail to execute.

The backtrace for each script is identical:

I am not sure where to start looking for a solution.

Quite by chance I managed to figure out why this is failing. When creating the terraform template_cloudinit_config I had not specified a filename for each of these scripts. According to the terraform documentation this is "optional" and I had assumed that a generic/temporary name would be created.

The eventual working configuration that worked is:

data "template_cloudinit_config" "config" {
  gzip          = true
  base64_encode = true

  part {
    filename     = "disable-ipv6.ps1"
    content_type = "text/x-shellscript"
    content      = file("${path.cwd}/scripts/disable-ipv6.ps1")
  }

  part {
    filename     = "configure-firewalls.ps1"
    content_type = "text/x-shellscript"
    content      = file("${path.cwd}/scripts/configure-firewalls.ps1")
  }
}

Should this be logged as a bug? If filename is considered optional shouldn't cloudbase init handle this when processing multipart mimedata?

Hello,

Thank you for the report. It seems this is an actual bug in cloudbase-init, as the x-shellscript should be executed at boot time and not persisted on the disk.

ok great - should I open a issue on the cloudbase github page with these same details?
