RE: cloudstack reset VM password files
Hey Rene and Ivan,
During tests my setup was utilizing Rene scripts:
- 99_CloudStack.cfg script successfully makes cloud-init to use Cloudstack data.
- 80_root.cfg script was preventing cloud_init to start during boot (missing parameters error message) so I removed it and used the default config.cfg instead.
Regarding the password change I figured it out - the password script is made to be run once per instance. The data about the password setup is kept by /var/lib/cloud/instances/<instance uuild>/sem/config_set_passwords file. If you delete this file the next boot will fetch the ACD password but it will apply it for the user that has been set in cloud-init config file.
- ugly - make sure the file is deleted after boot with the custom script cloud-init option.
- clean - change the password script execution frequency per boot instead of per instance. Unfortunately I could not find the file that defines the frequency for the datasource file (/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/cloudinit/sources/DataSourceCloudStack.py).

Rene, thank you for your confirmation that it works. I'll check it again, but my configuration looks like yours (haven't checked line by line) and password reset doesn't work with cloud-init from ubuntu apt repository. Our engineer rebuilds template delivery CI/CD pipeline now and we will have a chance to test again.
