Subject RE: User data is not base64 encoded
Date Mon, 29 Feb 2016 15:38:55 GMT
I did try to add the '==' to the end of the base64 string and still get the same error. I am
going to install cloudmonkey and try to pass the userdata from cli. I would appreciate if
anyone has more ideas about how to resolve gui problem with userdata.

Thanks,
David

I had the same problem last week.
It turns out that the code is considering anything that ends with "==" as base 64 encoded.
That can be a bit picky because sometimes you can encode something in base 64 and not get
the "==" at the end, but still you will have to add it to use that functionality.
