Image details:

  • regular user (login/pass): debian/naibed (access: SSH, local)
  • super-user (login/pass): root/toor (access: local)

  • GUI: Xfce
  • Metapackages installed: kali-linux-full

Note: if you encounter metadata services error during Instance boot, that means metadata services are not working properly in your OpenStack Cloud, enable/fix metadata services in OpenStack or wait few minutes until the Instance boots and then disable or uninstall cloud-init package, if you don’t need it. If you want to launch the image on KVM, you should also uninstall cloud-init.
