I am running Openstack Liberty  with L2 provider network in test env with
ceph rbd.

VMs are booted from volume (create volume from image during creation) and
using metadata service and cloud init to inject password/ sshkey, initial
command and so on.

I cloud reset password by deleting the vm (keep the root volume) then
re-create using the same IP.

I am wondering that is it possible to use cloud init / metadata service to
reset password?

Not sure if it is doable:
