Subject Re: Cloud Instance Manager only sets password after reboot on Windows 2012 R2
Date Tue, 02 Jun 2015 10:37:56 GMT
"We're building a Windows 2012 template on KVM. It works fine except that it
only sets the password for the VM after rebooting it once."

we observed this behaviour with 4.3.1/2 because when you check inside VR,
there is file /var/cache/cloud/passwords that should indicate that the
IP=password line is not present during VM boot (or at least that is the
behaviour we saw).
Meaning VR is late with password provisioning inside this file so VM doesnt
get to fetch it during first time boot...

But if you reboot the instance, in the meantime the line with IP=password
is provisioned, so simpe reboot works fine.

If instead reboot, you shutodnw VM, reset pass again, you will not be able
to fetch it again - so reseting pass is simly not the solution.

Simple VM reboot will fetch pass...
