Initial VMware OVA password


We've installed the Enterprise OVA in our VMware environment and we're now sitting at the logon page, but can't log in with the initial default admin/changeme that's suggested in the documentation and on the website.
The First Time Signing In? link does nothing.
Has that changed or what is the new password?

The default is admin/changeme.

Check the usual things that prevent someone from entering a password correctly (Caps Lock, odd keyboard output, etc.)

If that doesn't work, at its core this is just a Splunk instance; you can rename $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/passwd and restart, and it will reset the password back to the Splunk default of admin/changeme.


It is admin/changeme

  1. Check if capslock is on
  2. Check the text by entering it in a text file and check if Keyboard input is correct.
