Can you give more details on what is your use case? As we need to take into consideration the snapshotting and instance rescue. For the moment, the password generation is executed only once per instance.

Thank you,

I need to backup a Windows volume and launch new instance based on it(because the host of original vm hit disaster). If it execute per instance, a random password will generate again. Which make it impossible to login.
