> generateRandomPassword() is supposed to create root user passwords. Right now it is only
used on the guest VMs. The format of the passwords it creates are of the form "random 3-character
string with a lowercase character, uppercase character, and a digit" + random n-character
string with only lowercase characters".
> For whatever reason it was that we use generateRandomPassword() for guest VM root user
passwords(maybe more secure?) we should use the same function for system VM root user passwords.
