The default page when i browse the public ip of my instance mentions :

"With a password: For security reasons the root password is initially set to a random value. To find the initial random root password, right click the instance in the AWS Management console, select "Get System Log":"


Where I can trace the password in the log ?


I see no variable or part mentioned as "password".


thanks in advance

in case anyone is wondering you just have to look at the log first thing after your instance is up because the log keeps refreshing with every action. so you won't be able to see the root password after a couple of failed attempts to login
