Change Password for default admin user

Engager

Is there a way to change the password for default admin user in the free edition?

I get the following error:

/opt/splunk/bin/splunk edit user admin -password 'newpass'
In handler 'users': This feature requires a Splunk Enterprise license.

No, there is not. There is no authentication available in the Free version, so no password can be set. You may use firewalls and/or proxies to limit access to Splunk instead.
