Fixed In Version: openstack-nova-2014.1-3.el7ost
Doc Type: Deprecated Functionality
Doc Text:
File injection into VM images is now deprecated; instead, Red Hat recommends that you use the ConfigDrive and metadata server facilities to modify guests at launch. File injection is now disabled by default in OpenStack Compute. To enable file injection, modify the inject_key and inject_partition configuration keys in /etc/nova/nova.conf and restart the Compute services. Note that the file-injection mechanism will probably be disabled in a future release.

With ConfigDrive and Metadata service combined there is no need for fiddling inside VM images at deployment time - images can consult metadata locally (configdrive) or network (metadata service).

Disabling it by default is thus sane, and we can review whether to deprecate and remove it entirely in future.
