### openstack launch instance hangs on 'Getting metadata...'

Hi,

I've prepped a windows install image locally on KVM with the last step being install of cloudbase-init. After importing this image into glance and then launching the instance, cloudbase-init.exe shell hangs on the following message:

It seems fetching metadata is somehow failing. I can close this window to continue, but not surprisingly, hostname renaming, password etc are not setup.

It's probably worth noting that I have no problems with the metadata service in my openstack environment when launching linux instances: they pickup the SSH key injection and hostname just fine, so I'm assuming it's a configuration problem on the windows instance side.

I'm assuming that this may be a setting in the cloudbase-init.conf file that I need to get right, but I can't find any documentation on how.

The github readme explains what plugins are available, but again, I don't see any documentation anywhere explaining how to use them.

any help is appreciated!

Note that the 'Getting metadata' line is the last entry in the logs since it hung there indefinitely, so I closed the shell window

edit2: I've also configured DHCP in Neutron to tell clients to use an MTU of 1438. Basically following instructions found here:
