Description Ruth Netser 2021-08-31 12:54:39 UTC
Description of problem:
Setting a password during VM creation in the customization flow will result in a malformed cloudinit section; password will not be set.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
OCP 4.9.0-fc.0, CNV 4.9.0

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a VM from template
2. Select the customize flow
3. Set a password in the cloudinit screen

Actual results:
- `#cloud-config` line is removed.
- When the VM is started, the following error appears:
2021-08-31 08:32:02,407 - __init__.py[WARNING]: Unhandled non-multipart (text/x-not-multipart) userdata: 'user: cloud-user\npasswor...'
- It is impossible to login with the selected password.

Expected results:
cloudinit should be well formatted.

Additional info:
==== Wrong format - VM created with customization ====
        - cloudInitNoCloud:
            userData: |
              user: fedora
              password: fedora
                expire: false
                - ''

==== Good format - VM created without customization ====

        - cloudInitNoCloud:
            userData: |-
              user: fedora
              password: fyl3-q66d-p3ik
              chpasswd: { expire: False }
          name: cloudinitdisk
