AWS Marketplace DDM VE 3.1 sysadmin password

Jump to solution

Hi,

I've launched the latest DDM VE from the AWS Marketplace (twice now), however the sysadmin password is not "changeme" nor is it sysadmin nor the AWS account ID (not sure where I saw that)

Any ideas?

Many retries later, this is how I got into the system and set the sysadmin password to something that worked. I initially used the AWS host key specified when created the EC2 instance.

chris@vader.local:/Users/chris> ssh sysadmin@x.x.x.x

its "sysadmin" and "changeme" - you could try to delete and restart it

Further to the above - this was the way I continued the install

    Do you want to configure system using GUI wizard (yes|no) [no]:

eLicenses Configuration

    Configure eLicenses at this time (yes|no) [no]:

System Configuration

    Configure System at this time (yes|no) [no]:

Configuration complete.

I then went straight to the browser

https://x.x.x.x/ddem/

Added a security exception to the browser

Loaded the license key, remember to unzip it first!

Next I added the 500GiB device to the file system, it failed the data system assessment but this is only a trial for me so I carried on. It may be that I chose the cheaper of the AWS volume types for the 500GiB disk.

Then configuration was straight forward.
