Does cloud-init store the copy of the init it ran first?



  • I'm sending my cloud-init file to Terraform via user_data. Is this stored anywhere on the machine that runs it? I know it may get merged with other stuff before it's run.



  • It seems to be stored under

    /var/lib/cloud/instances
    

    Under your https://devops.stackexchange.com/q/15483/18965 .

    cd /var/lib/cloud/instances/$(cloud-init query instance_id)
    

    For me I found the information I wanted in user-data.txt.

    sudo cat "/var/lib/cloud/instances/$(cloud-init query instance_id)/user-data.txt"
