[Openstack] openstack meta-data

You can update the metadata associated with an instance using the 'nova meta' command. However, this only updates the metadata (i.e.
key value pairs) rather than the other attributes.

Changing the server name would not alter the hostname of the VM, it would only alter the description in Nova.

Can you explain a little more what you would like to be doing ?
