why not just log in and use 'passwd' as root or sudo to modify the password?

you could also use cloud init to change the password at creation/boot if you'd like, or just use ssh key injection and avoid passwords all together. This guide may help

#cloud-config chpasswd: list: | user1:password1 user2:password2 user3:password3 expire: False

i think the cloud-init is for all new instance not for a specific instance ? in a other term if it's not possible to change instance password with nova ,are there to change or set it before creating instance ?IF YES HOW ?
