Hi,

I'm creating a new domain and I'm being asked to specify a master password. What's the point of this password if I'm already providing an admin username and password? This doesn't seem to be mentioned in the documentation.

Thank you,
Gili

This is certainly a problem. We are going to fix it. Please see: http://bugs.sun.com/bugdatabase/view_bug.do?bug_id=6402562.

The master-password is the SSL-store-password (key with which
SSL store is locked). If you are confused by this and don't
want to know these details :), please use "changeit" at the
prompt and then you will never have to be bothered by it.

Sorry for inconvenience.

Regards,
Kedar

Thanks Kedar,

It wouldn't have been a problem had it been called "SSL password" or been documented more explicitly somewhere :) I'll leave it for now.
