I'm trying to get an Ubuntu Cloud image running on my local KVM installation.
I am downloading the qcow2 image from here:
And using the instructions from here:
I cannot find a way to get the password for the instance. The instructions say that GRUB creates the password on first boot and that it is written to the console. What I haven't found is a way to read what is sent to the console. It scrolls too fast to view in the VNC console.
It seems like there should be a way to send console output to a file, but if there is such a method I cannot find it.
