Get this error sporadically building windows 2012r2 systems with latest cloudbase init package.

Any thoughts? Any more info needed for debug? This is on juno release(rackspace release)

If you are using, for example, config-drive metadata service(which is read-only), the password cannot be exposed to the OpenStack backend and made available to the user.

As a suggestion to solve this issue, I suggest you to set a password for the instance in advance and in this case it doesn't need to be generated by cloudbase-init. You can find more details on how to set the password in this thread

Hope it works!
