The cloud-init address is used for dynamic configuration of your instances.
Reasons it might fail:
- you might not have a neutron metadata-agent & proxy configured and running
- your networking might be misconfigured : if instance networking
doesn't come up, you'll see that error.
I suspect the latter issue is the problem.
