whenever i attach a script to a server using the --user-data parameter in combination with --config-drive True the script file on the server is without any line breaks:

$ErrorActionPreference = "Stop"

"$(Get-Date) - Test" | Out-File 'C:\test.log' -Append

will be

#ps1_sysnative$ErrorActionPreference = "Stop""$(Get-Date) - Test" | Out-File 'C:\test.log' -Append

on the server D:\openstack\latest\user-data. Obviously the script will not be executed, how can i fix this issue? is there any encoding I have to be aware?

There shouldn't be any issues with the encoding, can you put the exact user data file online so that we can reproduce the problem?

Thank you, Adrian Vladu
