Subject Re: Cloudstack guest password

Hello Craig, 

So setup-password scripts works from inside of the VM. If you just look on the script - 

1- First it finds the DHCP server IP from lease file. So make sure that you are getting you
lease file in your any of the folder mentioned in script - i.e DHCP_FOLDERS="/var/lib/dhclient/*
/var/lib/dhcp3/* /var/lib/dhcp/*”. Sometimes it does’t generate the lease file, So you
have to check first why is it got generating the lease file. 
2- Now just try to run the manual command to see wether you are receiving any password or
not i.e 'wget -q -t 3 -T 20 -O - --header "DomU_Request: send_my_password" $PASSWORD_SERVER_IP:8080.
Replace $PASSWORD_SERVER with you DHCP serve IP, which you can find in step -1
3- If you are able to get things you wanted in Step-1 and Step-2 then run the script manually
(It should reset the password by running manually )  weather to check if it is running on
successfully on boot or not. 
4- I am assuming that you have already enabled the password box in your templates and cloud-init
installed on you template.
