I have a custom build CENTOS image, and I am trying to pass the user data while booting up the instance. The issue is that userdata is picked up sometimes and sometimes it's not.

The image is of size 300MB.

I tested with CIRROS version. Every time the user data is being picked for the image.

Is the metadata agent running? Does it have suspicious log entries? When you fail to access user data, ssh into the instance, find the cloud-init log and check what it says. Access and trace packets if this fails.
