Thanks Tiantian, I was expecting an similar command like nova root-password "servername"(used for Xen compute) for KVM based computes.

Hi Christpher,

nova do not support Random Password generation for VM now. And SSH key in nova is named 'keypair'. Before you create an VM, create a keypair first. Then using the keypair to create the VM. When the VM become active, you can login into it using the kaypair.

Hoping this help you.
