I have ran in to situation when creating Windows Server 2016 virtual machine from template with Cloudbase-inti service starting process stacks on Administrators password prompt. While password isn't written I can't do anything. From unattended log I can see that password plugin loads, but says that "Updating password is not required". Where is problem?

What do you mean: "Cloudbase-inti service starting process stacks on Administrators password prompt"?

From the logs provided, the password has been found at the cloudstack password HTTP endpoint and it has been successfully set: "The password server returned a valid password for the current instance."
