Subject RE: Fail to get password for VM using API
Date Tue, 31 Jul 2012 07:29:33 GMT
@alena : thank you very much for your help :). I tried to set keypair when deploying a vm,
but it returns error message : A key pair with name 'my-generated-string' was not found. Am
i supposed to do something first for this ssh keypair ? (i try supplying "ssh keypair" value
with my auto-generated-string.

Sorry for the noob question, i'm a newbie in the cloud computing environment :)

The password is getting stored in the DB only when the user vm is deployed
using SshKeyPair. So only in this case you can use getVMPassword api to
retrieve the password. I'll make sure the documentation is updated for
this command in the future release.

In your case, if you forgot the password returned to you on the
confirmation box, you can always reset it using
resetPasswordForVirtualMachine API
