Hi Shahar,

Thank you for the reply.

To be honest I knew for those scripts but I want to do it in automate
fashion just like in that example that I put in my original message. I have
tried to specify in params.Files class multiple files:

vm_file1 = params.Files(file=[params.File(name = 'file1', content =
file1_content, type_= 'PLAINTEXT')])
vm_file2 = params.Files(file=[params.File(name = 'file2', content =
file2_content, type_= 'PLAINTEXT')])

and then give them as arguments to params.CloudInit _init_ constructor
(files=...)  just like in that example above but it seems that I am doing
something wrong because it does not write multiple files - it writes only
when you specify one file all right. The exception is "Error: 'list' object
has no attribute 'export'" (I tried to specify those files as a list -

Thanks for any help.

Best regards,
