Local Install - What If?

Forgive me if this has been asked already. What if, someone does a local install and then only specific the -d option for the disk and don’t do the cloud-config.yml. What is the default password for rancher in this case? Is the cloud-config.yml always needed for the install?

if you don’t specify a cloud-config, then there is no password or ssh key.

what I tend to do when I don’t want to use a cloud-config, is ros install -d /dev/sda --append "rancher.autologin=tty1"

that way, I can’t yet ssh into the physical box, and there’s no insecure password, but my console is logged in, so I can continue setting things up
