what's the default fedora image password ?

Asked by Kai Qiang Wu(Kennan) on 2013-08-10


The Fedora project maintains a list of official cloud images at http://cloud.fedoraproject.org/. The images include the cloud-init utility to support key and user data injection. The default user name is fedora.

It only said username, but does anyone know the password for it ?

I used Fedora 19 Downloadable Cloud Images

Hi Kai,

In general, Openstack suggest using keypair to login VM. As the document said the login username is 'fedora', but before login you should create a keypair, and inject the public key into VM. There is a official document to help you.

Hope it is help to you.

Thanks @Tian tian, I thought it would still has password just like cirros test image.

OK. I will check keypairs. If I remember right, the keypairs can work only if cloud-init worked.
But if cloud-init failed for some reason, I not sure if it can login with that injected content.
Or maybe I misunderstood keypair with cloud-init ?

No, Keypair not depend on cloud-init. It is injected into image using NBD or guestmount ,etc.
You can using keypair without cloud-init in fedora. :)
