I have no idea what this is supposed to mean, sorry.

The get_resource function will return the server UUID for a server 
resource, but you can't use it from within that resource itself (it 
would be a circular reference).

The UUID of a server is provided to the server through the Nova 
metadata; you should retrieve it from there in your user_data script.
