[Openstack-operators] Change admin password on already running instance

Is there any way to use OpenStack API to change admin (root) password on
already running instance ?
Which special configuration should be done on compute node or controller or
basic image to make it work ?
I've tried to run

curl -v -H 'X-Auth-Token: 3d9bd4afb993447d8a428d2ec10fcf11' -H
"Content-Type: application/json" -H "Accept: application/json" -X POST "

" -d '{"changePassword":{"adminPass":"welcome"}}'

And I'm getting HTTP 202 which seems to be ok.
But actually the root password of the instance was not changed.

Thank you.
