I want to access to my instance under rescue state using temporary password which nova rescue gave me.

But this password doesn't work. Can I ask how this password is injected to instance? I can't find any specification how is it done.

I would be grateful for any help

Can you make sure that


Is set on your compute nodes? Obviously, restart nova-compute systemctl restart openstack-nova-compute after you made the change.

Thanks for answer,

Yes of course I've read this guide and I've this variable set up like in this guide.

Unfortunately it still doesn't work, thats why I'm asking how exactly this password is injected to instance in rescue state.
