Hi

When I launch a new instance form a launch configuration that has user data specified, the user data does not seem to be sent to the instance?

I have confirmed that the user data exists

Thanks

    To follow up this, having checked the user data in the instance information panel it appears that

    r韊首퇷(�u벥

    is passed?

    Thanks

    That looks like an issue with base64 encoding of userdata? I think the data is being passed and maybe the issue is only with the display. If you login to the actual instance and check the metadata do you see the userdata correctly?

    thanks

    Hi

    When I log into the launched instance and run

    curl http://169.254.169.254/latest/user-data

    I get the same data (r�ߊ������(���u�r�) although it is encoded.

    Thanks
