Why is there a default master password in payara-6.2023.11.zip; and what is it?

Hi all

I am starting to migrate from payara-5 to payara-6, but hitting a snag right at the beginning.

When I try and do a simple:

asadmin start-domain

On a clean unzipped instance its asking for a master password. I have tried “changeit” and “admin” but its not working.

When I do the the same with the latest glasfish-7 release its like it always used to be and just starts.

Any ideas?

Regards
Rainer
