Hello everyone!

I installed cloudbaseinit v1.1.2 on windows10 and configured my cloudbase-init.conf file like below:

[DEFAULT] username=Administrator groups=Administrators injectuserpassword=true bsdtarpath=C:\Program Files\Cloudbase Solutions\Cloudbase-Init\bin\bsdtar.exe mtoolspath=C:\Program Files\Cloudbase Solutions\Cloudbase-Init\bin\ verbose=true debug=false renameadminuser=true logdir=C:\Program Files\Cloudbase Solutions\Cloudbase-Init\log\ logfile=cloudbase-init.log defaultloglevels=comtypes=INFO,suds=INFO,iso8601=WARN loggingserialportsettings= mtuusedhcpconfig=true ntpusedhcpconfig=true firstlogonbehaviour=no localscriptspath=C:\Program Files\Cloudbase Solutions\Cloudbase-Init\LocalScripts\, plugins=cloudbaseinit.plugins.common.networkconfig.NetworkConfigPlugin,cloudbaseinit.plugins.common.sethostname.SetHostNamePlugin,,cloudbaseinit.plugins.common.setuserpassword.SetUserPasswordPlugin,cloudbaseinit.plugins.common.sshpublickeys.SetUserSSHPublicKeysPlugin,cloudbaseinit.plugins.common.mtu.MTUPlugin allowreboot=true stopserviceonexit=false

During the automatic windows installation with autounattend.xml file, I didn't create any local user and and I kept giong with Administrator user.



users: - name: Administrator passwd: imamreza groups: Administrators inactive: False


instance-id: 0000892c-e497-45a8-a24d-509ca79c6999 hostname: wintest


version: 1 config: - type: physical name: interface0 mac_address: "$MAC"
subnets: - type: dhcp

When I mounted these three files together in order to change Administrator credentials, The password that I specified in user-data file is not working and the old Administrator user password didn't work too.

I can't access to my loggs for troubleshooting because my password lost. Also I should use nocloud or configdrive metadata services in my custom use case Where I had mistake?
