2015-07-04 08:19:02 +0200 asked a question Windows auto licensing with KMS is not working

Hello,

We configured our windows images with KMS to enable activation of openstack Windows instances. We have also set the following value in cloudbase.init conf for automatic windows activation.

activate_windows = true

But auto activation is not working for the new instances. We get the following error message in logs:


Error 0xc004f074. No key management service could be contacted

We are able to ping the KMS host from the instance but connection to port 1688 is not working. We tried with allowing the port 1688 in openstack Security rules, enable/disable Windows firewall but still no luck with windows activation.

If you could provide some assistance on this, that would be great.

Thanks, Alex James.

2015-02-16 07:20:52 +0200 asked a question Retrieving Windows instance administrator password with 'adminPass' filed

Hello,

We use a custom script to launch windows instances and use the 'adminPass' field to retrieve the administrator password. But we noticed that the password in the 'adminPass' field got changed after first boot and we get another password when we used the nova get-password command.

Is it possible for the cloudbase-init package to to set the 'administrator' password from the 'adminPass' field.

Thanks for your assistance on this. --. Alex James Aurocloud

Hello, Thanks for getting back to me on this. We tried your image from this page and it works fine. http://www.cloudbase.it/ws2012r2/ But the image we created with new cloudbase-init package is not working. Is it possible to get a copy of the cloudbase-init package used for your image in the above link so that we can test it.

Hello, We tried creating a new image with latest version of cloudbase-init but we are still facing issue with 'Admin' user password. We get blank password with nova get-password command. [root@localhost ~]# nova get-password ws2012r2std /root/.alex.pem [root@localhost ~]

Thanks for the reply. Images were created before Jan 5th. Let us recreate the images with latest version of Cloudbase-Init and see if the issue exists.

2015-01-22 19:20:58 +0200 asked a question Issue with 'Admin' password.

Hello,

We are creating customer windows images for our cloud. Currently cloudbase-init user is set to 'Admin' with 'injectuserpassword' value true. We are able to retrieve password for 'Admin' user with 'nova get-password' but for some reason that password is not working.

One thing I noticed is that 'adminPass' in the 'nova boot' command and the password retrieved using 'nova get-password ' are different and both didn't work. Customers can set 'Administrator' password from Console on first boot and it works fine.

I checked the 'cloudbase-init.log' file and there is no error when executing the ''SetUserPasswordPlugin'' plugin.

One of our customer wants to use nova API to create instances and they want to retrieve password using API.

If you could give some assistance on fixing this issue, that would be great.

Thanks for your assistance.

Thanks for the fix. It worked fine. Also, is possible to use the default 'administrator' user for cloudbase-init. Thing is, customers get confused with two administrator users and most of the customers do not like to retrieve the 'Admin' password from nova client using get-password command. We tried setting 'administrator' user in cloudbase-init conf but password wasn't working after the instance is created.

Hello,

Thanks for your reply.

Yes, the "black command line window" during the booting. Is it possible to hide it?

Thanks for your assistance on this.

Hello,

We are creating Windows images for our cloud. Is there an option to hide the cloud-base init screen during booting a Windows instance for the first time. I've a screenshot for it but I couldn't attach it.

Also, can you please provide the cloudbase-init configuration for enabling Windows automatic license activation on new instances.

Thanks. Alex James.
