Subject Re: Creating Windows Server 2019 templates with cloudbase init
Date Tue, 14 Jan 2020 13:20:56 GMT
Hi,

This could be a bug (or undocumented feature, ahem) with cloudbase-init.
Despite efforts I never got it to work reliably in the past, not sure 
about now.
Have you tried using CloudInstanceManager.msi for setting the password? 
It still works for me.

What I do is set up the template with a sysprep and unattend.xml where I 
also set a default password (perhaps this is what stops it from asking 
for new user pass), then on first boots CloudInstanceManager sets up the 
password without problems and resets work, too. SG zone btw.
