Hello All,

I recently added MS Windows 2k8 to my openstack servers. Has anyone had any experience with generating random passwords for the admin users? Right now I set a default password and the 'administrator' is required to change the password on first login. I'm wondering if there is a better way.

Thanks, Peter Borghard
