Password access on instance created from private image can't be certified. What should I do?

(:Last updated)

When creating an instance from private image, password access can't be certified because password authentication setting on "/etc/ssh/sshd_config" returns to No by executing cloud-init. Please conduct the following workaround if customer would like to avoid it.


Please create private image after editing cloud.cfg by the following setting.
1. Open "/etc/cloud/cloud.cfg"
2. Change as below:


ssh_pwauth: false


ssh_pwauth: true
