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?

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.
