Root Password after Solaris 11 Autoinstall?

998401 Newbie

So this would normally be a simple thing since according to the docs, the default root password is "solaris" but it seems doesn't work after I reboot my newly installed solaris 11 system.

I even tried reinstalling, and logging in while it installed and changing the password to something simple but even that doesn't work.

What is odd that during the autoinstall, I can log in as root with the solaris password but after the system is rebooted(after fully installing) the root password doesn't appear to work.

Am I supposed to set a root password in the manifest that would be used for the fully installed system?

Thanks for any help!
