The Windows password is generated at boot if the
EC2Config service plugin,
Ec2SetPassword, is enabled. This usually only happens the first time
an AMI is launched, and then
Ec2SetPassword is automatically disabled.
The password is not generated for rebundled AMIs unless
is enabled before bundling.
The password is encrypted using the key pair that you specified when you launched the instance. You must provide the corresponding key pair file.
Password generation and encryption takes a few moments. We recommend that you wait up to 15 minutes after launching an instance before trying to retrieve the generated password.
