How can I resolve cloud-init warning during system boot

I've

How can I resolve the following, which occurs during system boot?

url_helper.py[WARNING]: Calling 'http://169.254.169.254/2009-04-04/meta-data/instance-id' failed [40/120s]: bad status code [404]

Configuring a shorter timeout would also be satisfactory.

Is your virtual Ubuntu? Then I believe this is a bug:

Do you need the cloud version? Do you need to insert commands after the cloud version boots? If no, disable it according to the answer given here: askubuntu.com/questions/461942/fresh-install-ubuntu-14-04-server-slow-boot-due-to-failure-to-connect-169-254-16

I was following a guide for VM setup for openstack.  Perhaps I do not need to install the cloud RPMs?

gheistCommented:
Do you need VM with openstack? Ubuntu alone can run multiple applications, or act as virtualisation host without it.

Openstack is the final goal.  I need to be able to create VM's with custom OS's for our S/W and I found the simplest method is to kickstart them using virt-install and then import into openstack.  (maybe this can be done in openstack itself but I've not yet acquired that knowledge).   I came across a link, which advised installing cloud-* RPMs on the VMs for better integration with openstack so I followed it.  If they're not required, I can omit them.

You can snoop openstack configurations form livedvd demo of ubuntu openstack. Thats much easier to have working reference for comparison what breaks.

I only need cloud-utils-growpart so if I omit the others it's fine.  Thanks for the feedback guys.
