Hi, I am facing a strange problem that the windows instance password changes automatically after reboot, and its not accepting the old password, and I am also not able to reset the password. The old password also could not be retrieved by nova get-password command, as it does not produce any output. As far as the creation of image is concerned, I created the image without any issues by using this VirtIO driver : . What could be a possible solution to this?

zekken, Seems no issue with openstack, check windows OS policy where passwd change is enabled after reboot, Follow my blog for windows image preparation with customisation, if you need changes, can do it in unanswered file for user account & also helpful for sysprep
