The password is used only if you explicitly set it when booting the vm. For example:

  • nova boot --image image-id --meta admin_pass=p@ssw0rd vm-name

The password that is self-generated, the one from "adminPass" field, it is not taken into consideration by the metadata service, if it is not set when you create the server(boot the vm).

Hope it helps.
