Windows Storage Server 2008 RC Default Password

If you are like me, you were both excited and surprised to see Windows Storage Server 2008 available for download from the MSDN Subscriber Site.

And if you are like me, you rushed to install it only to find that upon logon, unlike other Windows 2008 Server installations, Storage Server never asks you to create an Administrator password.

So you are stuck at a login prompt with no idea on how to login.

Well, I’ve done the scouring for you and the default password is “wSS2008!

Hopefully that helps someone out!

*UPDATE*
Ok, glad to see I’m not the only one with this problem.  I see in my stats page that I got six hits from Google with in the first 15 minutes of this post for people searching for the Storage Server default password.
