New Indexer Failing due to Cert Password, what is the default password?

I have a new indexer. It's in the cluster, replicated and appears fine. We're using the default splunk generated cert. However 9997 wont open due to an invalid cert password. I thought the default was "password" ? But if i put that in

/opt/splunk/etc/system/local/server.conf
/opt/splunk/etc/apps/myapp/local/server.conf

I still get an error in splunkd.log

The default password is "password"

Thanks, how can i verify which conf file it's looking for the password in? Would it be both of the files i mentioned?

/opt/splunk/etc/system/local/server.conf
/opt/splunk/etc/apps/myapp/local/server.conf

system/local has the maximum level of precedence
