[Openstack] config_drive with Cinder boot from volume

Are you talking about booting from a volume that was created from an image (bootable volume)?

Depending on cloud-init's configuration, it might be configured to only run on first boot. If that volume had previously been used to boot an instance, cloud-init will not run on subsequent boots from the volume.

When I boot a particular image from a Cinder volume, the cloud-init tools do not work.  I can mount /dev/vdb manually and see the metadata file in the instance.  When I boot that same glance image w/o Cinder, it works fine.  Does anyone have guidance on what the problem is or where to look for clues?  The cloud-init log file is not too terribly helpful.
