I'm an admin and I installed Splunk without an admin password. It’s now saying that "No users exist" and no one can login. What should I do?

You can set an admin password using the existing user-seed.conf. Add the username and password under [user_info]. Splunk will require a restart after the change. A better way is to use the new hash generator so that you don’t add a cleartext password. See the docs for a full explanation.
