I have been working on installing the 8.1.2 Clustered ONTAP simulator. I have one node up and running fine and was able to configure it. I am trying to get the other node up and running, but rather than coming up to the setup screen, it is coming up to a login prompt. I have tried the logins that I always use for my simulators, but nothing works. I have also tried going back in and changing the bootarg.nvram.sysid and the SYS_SERIAL_NUM settings in addition to wiping everything a couple times. I even deleted the instance off of my ESX server and re-copied everything over and went through the whole loop again. I am still coming up to a login prompt. Can anybody tell me if there is a default login and password for the simulator as I cannot seem to find any documentation indicating such. Also, any suggestions for getting past this?
Try using admin as the username with a "blank" password. It should take you to a prompt that looks like this: ::> This is the cluster prompt without the cluster name as the node hasn't been joined yet. At that point the command would be "cluster setup". That should just drop you into the setup to join the node.
Hope this helps.

would it be possible for you to post a screenshot . it would help diagnosing the issue better.
I have the same problem but with my first node. Thought it was me. Destroyed everything and started over...was very carefull when prompted for admin password. When I finish the initial config, I get a login prompt, but no password is accepted including blank.
Did you type the base license with caps lock on, then forget to turn off cap locks when typing in your password during cluster setup?
The most common issue I experience in classes.
Wow! Do I feel dumb. The issue with leaving the CAPS on is that the VM Workstation doesn't seem to allow cut-n-paste, so the previous step of entering Base license key is typed manually.
I usually enter only the base by hand, which is not case sensitive, then cut and paste then rest later in putty or OnCommand System Manager. I teach clustered ONTAP every week and have to admit to doing myself on a few occasions
Try to reboot system and CTRL + C for boot menu , that boot menu will give you chance to give new password for the admin user. its the 3. choice in the boot menu list.
You can solve the problem with this action.
