If you rearm cloudbase by deleting the following registry key

HKEYLOCALMACHINE\SOFTWARE\Cloudbase Solutions\Cloudbase-Init

Then when you next try to login after a reboot the retrieved password doesn't work.

Tried this on Windws 10.

There's two really useful tidbits of information there.

That's because a new password is generated as well, you need to do a "nova clear-password" before rebooting.

You can also selectively "re-arm" each plugin, by deleting not the entire key, but just some of the values in the key. This way you could leave the password plugin in place, as an example.
