AFAIK cloud-init is not handling it ATM, while Cloudbase-Init supports it out of the box on Windows (and soon FreeBSD). You need to deploy your instance with an SSH keypair and use HTTP metadata, required for POSTing back the encrypted password. It does not work with ConfigDrive. Alessandro

Hyper-V support in OpenStack is alive and well, see for example this blog series comparing KVM and Hyper-V: [1]. The fact that SUSE / HPE might or might not support it, is just a matter of commercial choices unrelated to the upstream projects (which is what matters in this ML). Other vendors
